Believe it or not, it’s already been around two weeks since cricketing legend Shane Warne died. Premier Daniel Andrews has announced the public will have access to a limited amount of free tickets to the state memorial service for Warnie.
In case you missed it, Shane Warne died of a suspected heart attack on Thai resort island Koh Samui on March 4.
It was announced shortly after that alongside a private funeral for the Aussie icon, there will also be a public memorial service at the MCG on March 30.
Dan Andrews tweeted out on Tuesday morning that if you would like to attend the memorial service you can grab a ticket for free.
“We’ve got some details locked in for Warnie’s memorial at the MCG,” he wrote on Twitter.
“The service will begin at 7pm, 30 March.
“Free tickets will be available for booking from today at 3pm.
“And don’t worry – if you can’t make it, the memorial will be livestreamed.”
