COURIER MAIL (Brisbane, Australia) 13 September 06 Irwin tickets available Friday (Glenis Green)
Australians and overseas visitors are expected to queue possibly immediately to obtain one of just 3000 tickets to Steve Irwin's memorial service to be released on Friday.
Of the 3000 tickets, 1000 will be available through the Ticketek booth at the Myer centre in Elizabeth Street in Brisbane.
Another 1000 will be available at a Ticketek booth at the Myer store at the Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore.
The other 1000 tickets will be available at the Australia Zoo box office at Beerwah.
The rest of the 5,500 seats at the Crocoseum at Australia Zoo are expected to be occupied by family, friends, media, and others.
Each person will be limited to four tickets.
All tickets will available from 9am Friday and there will be no charge.
The memorial service will take place at the Crocoseam at 9am next Wednesday.
A police spokeswoman said officers were working on a plan of action to deal with the crowds of people who were expected to queue for tickets.
Mr Irwin's manager and close friend John Stainton said the service would involve guests sharing their memories of Mr Irwin, with John Williamson to perform the Crocodile Hunter's favourite song, True Blue.
The service will also be broadcast on the Nine Network and possibly other networks, while discussions were underway to have the service broadcast in Asia and the US.,23739,20405079-953,00.html

THE AGE (Melbourne, Australia) 13 September 06 Free entry for Irwin service
(AAP) Steve Irwin's heartbroken widow has told of losing her soul mate, as plans were announced for a public memorial service at the Crocodile Hunter's wildlife park.
Terri Irwin was due to hold a news conference today outside Australia Zoo to announce details of the service for her husband, but was too upset.
The service will be held at 9am (AEST) next Wednesday. Australia Zoo and Ticketek at Brisbane and Maroochydore, on the Sunshine Coast, will distribute 3,000 free tickets to the memorial from 9am on Friday.
At the news conference today, Steve Irwin's father, Bob Irwin, read a prepared statement from Terri Irwin in which she thanked the public for their "overwhelming outpouring of love, support and prayers for my family".
She referred to Steve as her "soul mate" and "wildlife warrior".
Mrs Irwin has remained in seclusion with her children Bindi, eight, and two-year-old Bob, since Steve Irwin's death from a stingray barb to the chest in an incident on the Great Barrier Reef on September 4.
Steve Irwin's business manager, John Stainton, said Mrs Irwin had wanted to address the public today but was still struggling too much with her grief to speak.
But he said she and Bindi would address the memorial service to be held at the 5,500-seat Crocoseum at Australia Zoo, north of Brisbane, next Wednesday.
Mrs Irwin said in the statement she knew larger Brisbane venues, such as Suncorp Stadium and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, had been earmarked for the service.
"However, it is my wish that the memorial service be held here in the Crocoseum at Australia Zoo which is where Steve would have wanted it," she said.
"I cannot see how a memorial service for Steve would work in any other place other than the Crocoseum which he built here at the zoo and of which he was so proud.
"I would therefore ask that everyone please bear with me in this wish and help me to make this happen."
She understood many people would not be able to attend, so the family would work with local and state governments to supply large TV screens at venues at Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
And the service would be broadcast on television live through the ABC to Australia, Asia and the US.
Mr Stainton said it would be a tribute to Steve's life, from the boy to the man, with guests sharing their memories of him.
He said John Williamson would perform Steve's favourite song, True Blue, but the memorial would not be an "elaborate variety show".
"It's more a tribute to his life and a celebration of what Steve was about," he said.
"We're going to try to cover as many facets of his whole entire life from when he was a little boy to when he left us."
Mr Stainton had said earlier that tickets could be reserved by making a donation to Steve Irwin's charity, Wildlife Warriors.
But he later said Australia Zoo and Ticketek at Brisbane and Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast will distribute 3,000 free tickets to the memorial from this Friday.
