A “celebration of life” memorial for P-22, the famed mountain lion who called L.A. home, will be held at the Greek Theater Feb. 4.

Tickets to the free event were offered Monday through Ticketmaster and were completely “sold out” by the end of the day.

With tickets being gone, the Greek Theater said the event would be live streamed for fans of the cougar to watch from home between noon and 2 p.m. PST.

The outdoor stadium event is said to have live music, dancing and food, with a surprise of guests scheduled to speak.

“We will all be grappling with the loss for some time, trying to make sense of a Los Angeles without this magnificent wild creature,” the event description reads. “Let’s come together as a community to celebrate his remarkable life.”

P-22 was euthanized on December 17, 2022 after sustaining critical injuries from a presumed car accident, combined with a history of illness.

The cougar was found in a residential back yard in Los Feliz, outside of his typical Griffith Park settlement and thoroughly examined by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Los Angeles first discovered the mountain lion in 2012, with the city falling in love with its gracefulness and story of a 50-mile route through the Santa Monica mountains.
