After talk about charging fans $20.00 a pop to bid the music idol farewell, the promoter has announced that Michael Jackson’s funeral won’t cost fans a cent stating, “there will not be a charge for tickets". The funeral will be free!
Tickets will be available to for fans worldwide to win in a lottery! I’m sure people will eventually see them up for sale on EBay and Craigslist!
Michael’s funeral will take place on Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The facility can seat 20,000 with about 10,000 being reserved for winners of the ticket lottery. It hasn't been revealed who will get the other 10,000 seats or if they will remain empty for the service.
I’m sure there will be plenty of fans that don't have tickets hanging around with the hopes of catching a glimpse if the proceedings.
No word on how they’re going to maintain the crowds. Hopefully there won’t be a stampede.
The Jackson family will have their own private service.
