Details for the Feb. 24 memorial to honor Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the seven others killed in a helicopter crash last month are expected to be released Friday.

Fans have been especially anxious to find out how tickets to the tribute at Staples Center -- affectionately dubbed, "The House That Kobe Built" -- will be made available to the public.

It appears the ceremony will not be shown outside of the arena, the Los Angeles Times is reporting. Those without tickets are being encouraged not to come to Staples Center, and instead watch the event on TV.

Also, as was the case with the Nipsey Hussle memorial, there are no plans for a procession, the Times stated.

News of the memorial was first announced Feb. 7 on Instagram by Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant.

The date was chosen to honor the numbers worn by Gianna (2), Kobe (24), and the number of years Kobe had been with both the lakers and Vanessa (20).

The memorial is expected to honor all nine victims killed when Kobe's helicopter crashed in Calabasas while on its way to a basketball tournament in Thousand Oaks on the morning of Jan. 26.

The other victims were longtime Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri Altobelli and their daughter, Alyssa Altobelli; Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton Chester; assistant basketball coach Christina Mauser; and pilot Ara Zobayan.

In the days following the crash, a memorial outside Staples Center grew bigger every day.

In all, Staples Center officials calculated 25,000 candles, 1,300 basketballs and thousands of signs and letters were left outside the arena by grieving fans.

The NBA announced plans Thursday to honor to Bryant and the other crash victims at this weekend's All-Star Game.

Among a long list of entertainers, two-time Grammy winner and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will perform a special tribute just before Sunday night’s player introductions.
