ticketmaster just opened up a TON more $46 seats for U2 on May 16 at The Forum, so if anyone is interested in seeing the show this is a great way to get in for cheap

anyone else beyond nervous about parking for tonight?

why does there have to be this additional layer of concern to what should be a simple part of the concert-going experience

It was SO BAD last night. I don't remember it being like that for I&E, or the UFC event I went to at the Forum. Does it have something to do with the construction on the stadium?

I've never parked anywhere but the Forum parking lot when attending concerts there, but I did hear they lost some parking due to the construction.

I came in on Prairie, drove past the stadium construction and arrived at The Forum at 5:30 yesterday. We had no problem parking. Plan accordingly and get there early. Personally, by the time you browse the shirts, grab something to snack on and socialize some the 2.5 - 3 hours goes by pretty quickly.

The doors opened around 6:00, and it wasn't real crowded. The show didn't start until about 8:45 or so. I'm not sure how that is for U2, but it seems a little later than a typical "late" start for a show scheduled for 8:00. I imagine they may have delayed it some due to the parking issues.

That said, now that word is out about the parking, if I was going tonight I'd probably try to get there a little earlier than I did last night.

I couldn't even get over to the parking lost last night, it was such a crawl, I parked at a restaurant at Prairie/Manchester for $20 and called it a day.

this is a major reason we're experiencing such a problem

Whoa, I completely missed this. I don't know how to feel about that. How would Inglewood even handle having ANOTHER arena, on top of the new Stadium?

forum, basketball arena and football stadium in an area totally inaccessible by train.

sounds like a win/win/win

Yeah, I didn't know about that either....not that it's right in my backyard or anything. I was thinking last night the Stadium and Forum in that relatively small area has all the makings of a nightmare for football and Forum events alike. But they want to put another arena in there? That's just nuts.

I'm absolutely dreading driving down there again tonight, and I keep thinking I'll just take the bus, as I've done it before. But then I remember that means I'll have to take the bus back afterwards, and that seems kinda no bueno.

I on-again/off-again work for the NFL Network, and the thought that they're going to be moving to the new stadium in 2021 has me thinking maybe it'll be off-again by that point .

Yeah, I wouldn't. I get trying to avoid the driving stress, but sitting on a bus with a bunch of other people sounds worse. But I'm a bit of a control freak.

i usually just park at century and myrtle and leisurely walk the 1 mile even though it's a pretty bad neighborhood most of it is with the concert traffic but i'm with my wife tonight and it's my birthday so i am fine with paying the parking charge. now to think i might not even be able to pay for parking is just mind boggling. we're leaving SM at 530 sharp and hope to be near the lot by 630-645. fingers firmly crossed

I didn't realize it was that far out - thought it was 2019 or 2020. Maybe the Chargers will move back to San Diego (no insight, just typing out loud).
