Reports currently indicate, be advised that this is a very "fluid" story, that Michael Jackson's funeral will be held on Tuesday at the Staples Centre (owned by AEG the promoters of Jackson's O2 residency), the home of LA Lakers in Los Angeles.
The stadium can hold up to 20,000 people, with the option for large television screens to be placed outside for thousands of other fans to watch. Apparently, 11,000 free tickets will be made available.
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which hosted the 1984 Olympic Games and can hold 92,000 people, has also emerged as a possible venue for a memorial.
Seemingly Michael Jackson will be buried in a solid bronze, gold-plated coffin worth $25K.
