“Michael Jackson’s funeral is being scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 7, at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles,” Hollywood Reporter said.

“AEG Live, which owns the basketball arena and the adjacent Nokia Theater, will use both facilities and the surrounding plaza. There’s no word yet on how ticketing will be handled.” [Ticketing? They are selling tickets?]


Earlier in the week, news sources spoke too soon, and announced that MJ’s memorial and funeral was going to be held at MJ’s Neverland Ranch near Santa Barbara, CA. Some sources even falsely claimed his memorial and funeral was to be in his hometown Gary, Indiana.
