No details were available on the location of the private funeral. However, several reports have suggested that Michael will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who will produce the Jackson memorial at Staples Center, told Access Hollywood executive producer Rob Silverstein the public service would not be an extravagant tribute concert.

"It will be a memorial service reflecting the dignity of what the family wants," Ehrlich said. "It will be a fitting memorial to Michael Jackson – no dance numbers."

However, Ehrlich did say the service would include "some types of performances."
