Thousands were expected to pay tribute to Michael Jackson Friday in Raleigh, but now the event is cancelled. Organizers say they've been forced to scrap a memorial scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday at the Walnut Creek Amphitheater.

They say the event - which was to go on at the same time as an event at Jackson's Neverland Ranch in California - can't go on because the california event has also been postponed.
