Your email has been selected from over 30 million entries to attend the Ted Kennedy funeral. Congratulations! We appreciate your support in this sad and historic hour as we pay tribute to The King of Pop(ulist Causes)!
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11 am. However, because we anticipate enormous crowds, we suggest you arrive at the TD Garden at least two hours earlier. While you queue up to enter, you will pass by some historic Kennedy memorabilia, such as notes from his work on the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the sequined glove he wore when he was first sworn in as a Senator in 1962.
Seating is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Ticket holders who can not be accommodated at the Garden will be directed to Fenway Park, where the service will be simulcast on the Jumbotron.
Performers scheduled to appear include Kanye West, Diana Ross, Paul McCartney, and Capitol Steps, plus a very special duet with Whitney Houston and Sen. Dianne Feinstein. There will also be tributes to the late senator from Brooke Shields, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ann Wagner, United States ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Photography or videotaping of any kind is prohibited. If you want a lasting memento of this event, we suggest pre-ordering the DVD “Ted Kennedy: America Says Farewell”, which will be on sale at all Borders, Barnes and Nobles, and Whole Foods locations on September 15.
