The event will be livestreamed and shared on 13 Action News. It will also include family, friends and colleagues of the former senator.

Representatives handling the service say invited guests and ticket information will be released at a later date with tickets being distributed through Reid’s office and not the Smith Center.

The Smith Center box office will not be taking further information about ticket requests or the service, according to an event news release.

Reid, Nevada's longest-serving senator, died at the age of 82 on Tuesday after battling pancreatic cancer.
