The Forum

“Do you have a minute? James Worthy is outside in the hall and wants to come say hello.”

Tom looked up from his seat in his dressing room backstage at The Forum and smiled. A long-time Lakers fan, Tom knew all too well what it meant to have Big Game James come calling in the building he and his Showtime Laker teammates made famous. Hopping up from his seat, Tom crossed the room just as the Hall of Fame power forward and current Lakers commentator opened the door, and the two laughed and smiled while shaking hands.

The stars came out in spades for Tom and the band’s final shows of the 2014 Hypnotic Eye tour, two hometown affairs at one of rock ’n roll’s hallowed halls, The Fabulous Forum. Backstage hallways were filled with family and friends before the show, buzzing with anticipation and excitement. Mike Campbell roamed from room to room, strumming an acoustic guitar. Dhani Harrison, son of George, chatted with Scott Thurston and Steve Ferrone.

A few minutes after Steve Winwood wound down his opening set, Tom called for the band to have one last word before they took the stage for the last time of the tour.  As the group gathered in the hallway outside their dressing room, Tom stood next to his tour manager Richard Fernandez, who waited quietly with his flashlight in hand ready to lead them to the stage.

“Well, it’s our party, guys,” Tom said with a laugh, looking around at his friends and bandmates over the last 35-plus years. “Let’s go do it."

Hey! I'm a member! Why the heck didn't I get the presale info?!

marath64's picture

Umm, when i go to purchase pre-sale tix, why is Ticketmaster making me pay an additional $50 for a Petty Fan Club membership when i've already joined? It doesn't allow me the option of removing that additional $50 charge on my order.

Hi there it says that presale codes will go out today for LA... I have not recieved one yet but am watching closly any idea when they will go out????? thanks

The Ticketmaster site says on-sale is May 31, 2014.  Nothing about pre-sales for Highway Companion members, like the Honda Center show website.  Hopefully, this will get corrected by Tuesday morning.

gruffgordon's picture

Okay, the Ticketmaster site now lists the pre-sale info.  Now, where are the codes?

I'll be there.  Front row or nose bleeds, makes no difference on my showing up:)

You'll be emailed a link closer to the sale time.

Last time I saw tom petty at the Forum it was a poor venue run by a mega church but it was really a memorable night. Tom and the band were awesome. We were about 10 rows back on the floor. When I was out getting some drinks a very stoned David Spade droped into my seat and said to my wife "Just let me sit here for a minute'.

We saw the opening night of the Eagles and the new Forum and then Sting and Paul simon. The Forum is now an awesome venue, the sound is incredible. They have lined the roof with acoustic tiles. I can't wait to hear Tom play there.

Hey everybody! Just joined. Thrilled to be doing this. Question....do buy the presale tix through this website or through the venue?

Keep rockin'!

So excited for this show!  It will be our first night out after having a new baby!!!!  When does the presale code get sent out?

Have always loved TP&THB but never got the change to see them, as they didn't tour (that I know of) in Mexico, or at least not when I lived there. I am looking forward to see them in LA for the first time ever.
