A memorial service for Michael Jackson has been announced for Tuesday at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles where he had been rehearsing for his London concerts.

Some 11,000 free tickets will be made available for the service.

In the meantime, Randy Phillips the President of AEG Live, which also owns the Staples Centre, says the company is considering making a film and live albums of Jackson’s rehearsal footage.

Phillips says there are more than 100 hours of rehearsal footage which shows the star singing and dancing.

Meanwhile, a lawyer for Jackson\'s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, says she’s undecided about whether to fight for custody of his two eldest children.

A judge has now delayed a guardianship hearing which was scheduled for Monday, until July 13.
