One of the best venues in Melbourne and in Australia. In the past two decades I have been here for anything from comedy to watching my favourite bands! The building is beautiful and the quality of the gigs they have as always been brilliant too, in fact these days I think if it's happening in forum, then it must be great 😊

Great venue to watch a concert. Love this place. The staff are always friendly and cheerful and the security staff are very helpful. If you're able to splurge at least once for a booth seat, it makes for a better experience.

Saw In Flames. Really solid venue. I didn't have an accessibility seat reserved, but they gave me one for my wife and I. Really friendly staff. Easy to get a drink if you wanted. The merchandise line didn't move between acts, so we didn't end up getting any, as we couldn't attend the second band and wait around. This is not fault of the venue, however, just to note for next time.

Recently went to The Forum for Texas the Scotties Band with Shannen James as Opening act. Been there several times, overall very happy with the experience. The staffs were very friendly and kind. The security in front of the stage periodically giving water for Audience to prevent us from Dehydration. The Interior also pretty impressive with Roman Statues & Architecture. Strategic location, just walking distance from Flinders Street Station.
