Michael Jackson memorial tomorrow

Updated on : Monday, July 06, 2009

LOS ANGELES: Michael Jackson’s memorial will be held in Los Angeles tomorrow.

Tickets for memorial were advertized for sale on the Internet Sunday as the winners of a hugely over-subscribed online lottery were notified.

Some 1.6 million people registered to enter the draw for the event, hoping to be among 8,750 lucky fans chosen at random by a computer to receive a pair of tickets for Tuesday's service.

Late Sunday, dozens of adverts offering tickets for sale had begun to appear on the popular website, although most were swiftly flagged for removal.

Authorities on Friday pleaded against ticket scalpers seeking to cash in on the event. Ticket winners who beat the 183-1 odds of being chosen will be given a wristband to wear when they are issued with their tickets in order to make it harder for scalpers.
