After sparking outrage Thursday for reportedly putting tickets for Michael Jackson’s forthcoming funeral/memorial service for $25, AEG Live has decided to withdrawal the offer. “I can confirm that we will not be charging,” an AEG Live spokesperson confirmed late Thursday. According to AEG Live, 11,000 tickets will be available for free. Jackson’s expected memorial service was confirmed Wednesday and will take place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. The service will also utilize the nearby Nokia Theater. At this time a lottery system is expected to be set up and revealed Friday. In related news, footage from Michael Jackson’s pre-This Is It Tour rehearsal has been released by CNN.
