  • my husband must have a seat at concerts. but when i try to book tickets for concerts at your venue the section and seat number are very unclear and the floor plan on any site I have tried does not have seat numbers and rarely shows the sections. how can i be sure he is sitting at your venue when i am purchasing tickets..
    regards Dee

    • Hi Dee,

      The seating configuration at the Forum Theatre changes depending on the show. Some concerts have standing room only, whilst other shows such as comedy performances often have seating on the main floor.

      If you require a seat, I would suggest contacting the Forum Theatre directly on (03) 9299 9800 which is the disability booking number. They should be able to advise you as to the seating configuration for your chosen show.

      Best regards,

    • Hi Megan, thanks for contacting us.

      The Forum theatre does not have a single seating plan as they change configurations depending on the event. Some events such as concerts are ‘standing only’ general admission, other events such as comedy shows have seating added to the ‘general admission’ area.

      I suggest you contact the ticket provider for the event you are planning to attend (such as Ticketmaster or Ticketek), who should be able to assist you with the seating for you planned event. Otherwise, I would suggest contacting the Forum Theatre directly on Phone: 03 9299 9860 or Email: [email protected].
