Michael Jackson Memorial Tickets!

It’s official! I picked up my Michael Jackson memorial service tickets today from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles! Somehow, someway, I became one of the lucky few out of 1.6 million applicants to be awarded these coveted passes. Stevie Wonder, Usher, and others will be on hand tomorrow at the Staples Center paying homage to the king of pop as I will be in attendance.

On the eve of this occasion, two thoughts predominate. Will the euphoria of this spectacle outweigh the reality of life and death that grounds it? Will a somber mood prevail for someone who most likely died tragically when he didn’t have to? Also, will this memorial service bring some semblance of closure for the greater music world? I hope so.

More to come tomorrow…
