Nipsey Hussle will be given a true Los Angeles sendoff by being paid tribute at the Staples Center this week, and fans will be able to get their hands on free tickets starting Tuesday.
Staples Center just announced, “Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life” will take place Thursday, “promptly at 10 AM.”
As for how to get tickets, a limited batch will be made available starting Tuesday, and Staples has announced they will be “complimentary.”
Staples usually has a capacity of around 8,000 people for special events, so it’s unclear how many tickets they will be releasing.
Security has also been considered by event organizers, and the details of the memorial make it clear metal detector, visual and bag checks will be done upon entering the venue.
Also, no recording devices are allowed inside during the ceremony.
Luckily many of the street gangs in Los Angeles have come together for peace in the wake of Nipsey’s murder, so there should not be any expected beef among guests.
