Later this week, Takeoff’s burial will reportedly feature a performance by Justin Bieber at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena. Bieber will perform on stage at the Migos rapper’s memorial service on Friday, according to TMZ (November 11). Only Georgians can purchase tickets for the event through Ticketmaster.
Justin Bieber will probably be one of many famous people at the event, despite the fact that details about his performance are still scant. The Canadian vocalist doesn’t have any records with Takeoff by himself, but he collaborated with the group on “Looking For You” from 2014 and “What You See” from Culture III.
Reverend Jesse Curney III of New Mercies Christian Church will preside over Takeoff’s ceremony at the 20,000-seat arena, which will start promptly at 12:00 pm ET, according to Atlanta radio station V-103. Curney recently discussed the deceased Atlanta resident on television, mentioning how his family was an active part of his congregation and how his passing was a terrible blow to the neighborhood.
In the wee hours of November 1, Takeoff was shot and died in Houston, Texas. “Shortly after 2:30 a.m.” a shooting was reported at a nearby bowling alley where a dice game had been going on. Shots were reportedly fired during a dispute, fatally injuring Takeoff.
