Soon the Tampa Bay Times Forum will be the center of the political universe when it hosts the RNC, but it's already making a name for itself.
The Forum was named the second best venue in the U.S. and the 15th best worldwide by Pollstar magazine.
The mid-year rankings are based on many things, including ticket sales from concerts, events and family shows. The Forum underwent a $45 million renovation project this year.
Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, and the college hockey's national championship are just a few acts that have already called the venue home this year.
Pollstar is the only trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry.
