Michael Jackson: Funeral Details

A funeral at a huge, multi-million dollar arena seems fitting for a man whose life was a never-ending spectacle.

Sources are saying that Michael Jackson’s funeral is being scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 7, at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. Although not yet confirmed by the family, officials at the arena have said that there will be a special event there on Tuesday.

The Hollywood Reporter says that AEG Live, which owns the basketball arena and the adjacent Nokia Theater, will use both facilities and the surrounding plaza. The Staples Center was also the last place that the King Of Pop performed, the night before his tragic passing.

No word on ticketing or whether there will be an admission fee.
