Michael Jackson's body will reportedly lie in state for two days at his Neverland ranch.

The singer will apparently be placed in a glass coffin so fans can pay their respects before a private family funeral.

'It's going to be a huge event,' says family lawyer Brian Oxman. 'We are expecting 100,000... a million... every time we say a figure someone says, more, more.'

It's thought Michael will be taken to Neverland tomorrow in a white stagecoach from the funeral parlour in Santa Monica before being laid to rest.

'He will be buried not cremated,' adds Brian. 'His mum Katherine is a Jehovah's Witness and despite claims Michael had converted to Islam he was one too.'

After the service, Neverland could be transformed into a memorial space.

'There had been talk in the family that the ranch could be turned into a permanent shrine to Michael,' former manager Dr Tohme Tohme tells the Daily Mirror. 'There are ongoing discussions.'

Meanwhile, a tribute event was held for Michael at the Apollo Theater - where the Jackson 5 first made their name - in Harlem yesterday.
