Jackson Family: Public Memorial Service Confirmed

The Jackson family said in a statement Friday morning that a public memorial service for Michael Jackson will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. About 11,000 free-of-charge tickets will be available via internet but officials are expecting to draw over 100,000 fans at the service.

Before suffering cardiac arrest on June 25, the King of Pop was seen rehearsing at the Staples Center two days before he died.

Plans for the legendary entertainer’s funeral are still underway, but will most likely be a private event after Tuesday’s ceremony.

Fans wishing to attend must register at where names will be later chosen at random. Another 6,500 tickets will be available at a nearby theater.
