Those who receive tickets will be issued wristbands in hopes of deterring scalpers.
Officials expect hundreds of thousands of entries to try to get tickets. Only one entry per person will be accepted, and only U.S. residents are eligible for the tickets.
The service will not be simulcast on big screens outside the arena as previously reported. City ifficials are urging all fans who do not get tickets to stay home and watch the memorial service live on TV or online, and not gather outside the arena.
Police officials say there will be what they call a hard closure around Staples Center on Tuesday. If you don't have a ticket, you won't even be allowed into the immediate area.
Officials also say there will be no public funeral procession.
No other details were given about what fans will see at the memorial.
