Thorpe service 'no rock gig'

Sunday's memorial service in Sydney for rock legend Billy Thorpe will be open to the public but won't be a tribute concert, manager Michael Chugg says.

Details were still being worked out today for the memorial service at Sydney's Entertainment Centre on Sunday afternoon, which is also expected to be televised live.

Titled "Over The Rainbow", after Thorpe's cover of The Wizard of Oz trademark tune "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", the March 4 service will begin at 3.45pm (AEDT).

Thorpe, 60, died at St Vincent's Hospital yesterday after a massive heart attack.

Tickets to the hour-long memorial service will be made available to the public from tomorrow.

As tributes poured in for Thorpe, Chugg made it clear the event would be a memorial service, not a rock concert.

"We are working through all this and locking it all in stone, we will release the details on various websites over the next few days," Chugg told the Nine Network.

"Again, I must stress it is not a concert, we want you to come along because we want you to pay your respects to a great person.

"We have been very, very conscious of how Billy would have seen it."

The memorial service is expected to feature tributes and performances by some of Thorpe's closest friends and family.

A spokeswoman for Chugg Entertainment said the service would be telecast live on one of Australia's major networks – Ten, Nine, Seven or ABC – and an announcement would be made later today.

Australian pop star Olivia Newton-John today joined the tributes to Thorpe.

"I was shocked and still am," Newton-John told Nine.

"Billy was so full of life, it's just so hard to imagine. He was always so energetic and alive, it's incomprehensible yet.

"I have lots of fond memories of Billy."

A decision is also expected soon on the release date of Thorpe's last album, Tangier, which was in the final stages of mixing before he died.

Thorpe is survived by his widow Lynne and daughters Rusty and Lauren.
