The Madison Square Garden Company said they plan to spend $100 million on renovations at a news conference held in Inglewood.

The project was expected to generate hundreds of jobs.

“This project will generate tremendous economic benefits, including jobs, both on-site and from the spill over activity in the community,” said Madison Square Garden Company President Hank Ratner.

The former home of the Lakers and Kings also hosted a long list of iconic performers.

The Who, Led Zeppelin, Elvis and the Eagles were just a few of the legendary performers to play at the Forum.

The Forum’s new era was scheduled to begin Jan. 15 with a concert by the Eagles.
