Large Crowds Expected At Nate Dogg's Funeral; Tickets Limited To 1,000 People

The family of Nate Dogg has set up a memorial trust to help offset expenses for funeral services, which are taking place today (March 25th) and tomorrow (March 26th) in Long Beach, California.

Reps for Nate Dogg set up the trust to pay for the growing expenses for the singer's public funeral and to help provide some financial security for the late crooner's children.

A viewing for Nate Dogg is open to the public and is taking place today (March 25th) at the New Hope Baptist Church.

According to reports, the service is already drawing large crowds.

Earlier today, organizers of Nate Dogg's funeral revealed that only 1,000 tickets will be available for tomorrow's service for Nate Dogg, which is taking place in the Queen Mary Dome in his hometown of Long Beach.

Fans were instructed to order tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis, and to use them, you must have a valid California identification.

Nate Dogg, 41, died on March 15th, due to complications brought on by two strokes in 2007 and 2008.
