Family, friends, and fans globally continue to mourn the loss of Kirsnick Khari Ball, known to the world as Takeoff. To honour Ball and allow fans to pay their respect to the superstar, the family of the beloved will host a special Celebration of Life this Friday, November 11 at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena at noon local time.

Free tickets are available only to Georgia residents starting today, Tuesday, November 8 at 2 PM via Ticketmaster. Fans can secure a maximum of two (2) tickets at Ticketmaster. Tickets are non-transferable, and parties must enter the venue together. All guests are strongly encouraged to arrive early with doors opening at 11 AM State Farm Arena will offer free parking for ticketed guests in the Ruby Lot (100 Baker Street Extension, Atlanta, Georgia, 30303) until the lot is full. This is a limited-capacity event, and it is recommended that fans who do not secure tickets to not come downtown.

Takeoff was one of the most influential names in modern music whose creativity left a profound impact on music and culture as we know it today. The cherished Quality Control/Motown superstar was a part of the supergroup Migos and was a beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, and friend to so many.
