Random Drawing for MJ Memorial Tickets

7/3/2009 1:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Memorial Tickets Michael Jackson's memorial service will be held at two separate venues on Tuesday morning -- the main event will be at the Staples Center and a simulcast will play at the Nokia Theatre.

A lottery has been set up for fans to obtain the free tickets -- and they can sign up for the random drawing on the Staples Center website ... good luck logging on.

17,500 tickets are available for the event -- 11,000 for Staples and 6,500 for Nokia -- which will be divvied out 2 per person. If you are one of the 8,750 people selected, you will then be alerted on Sunday with further instructions.

Oh yeah ... only U.S. residents can apply.

Also, the family wouldn't say if Michael's body would be at the memorial.

don't know about anyone else, but i can't register.
the page keeps breaking when i hit 'submit'
clearly they didn't get more servers to handle the surge of people coming to their site.
hope i can try to enter later (and hope their system doesn't incorectly showing me as registering)

Dude let him go....I think I would rather have my tax dollars, that was just recently increased since califorina is BROKE, go towards the LA LAKERS game then go towards MJ's memorial. I'm not a fan, never was....but I have no choice my money has to pay for his memorial. Take our money and pay to keep our police and firefigthers...without them our houses would be gone in the wildfires. IF the Jackson family wants staples center and the public there make THEM pay for it not us that are barely making ends me to begin with. Janet makes well enough money to cover the entire expenses. Its all BS That is comming out of the pockets of the hard working people. Plus where iS FARAH FAWCETTS public Memorial? MJ's death just totally took away from those who are fans of Hers
