The memorial service

They've now announced the memorial service. Is the people comming? I would like it to be one of those services where every seat is taken, and some people have to stand in the back.
Any fans present should of course behave properly.
Re: The memorial service

I'd be surprised if they opened that up to fans. I would think it would be a closed friends and family sort of deal...

Re: The memorial service

I'm guessing this means people whom he actually knew.

An open memorial service is an open memorial service. The phrase "special friends" is just a conventional courtesy - anyone who takes the time to show up will be considered a special friend. In the case of people with a high public profile, whether within a community or in the wider world, it is common for their to be one or more public memorial services while the funeral is private, limited to family and friends. So I don't see a contradiction, nor do I see why they would have publicly announced the memorial service if not to enable the public to attend. He could easily have written "a private memorial service will be held for Richard on Wednesday" and not named the venue.
