Jackson, 50, died June 25, 2009, from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol. In November, Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in connection with Jackson's death and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Los Angeles police said no closures or additional traffic issues were expected in the Hollywood area because of the event.
