Doors finally open on Civic Hall as the night turns into a Blur!
Hundreds of Blur fans flooded the main stage as the doors swung open on the revamped Civic Halls for the first time.
The symbolic opening of the doors not only marks the end of a £48 million renovation but also the first time any band has performed on the stage professionally since its closure in 2015.
The event saw thousands of Blur lovers chant and cheer as they waited to get into the gig, with some fans queueing up at 9am to get a first space in the anticipated show.
Sharon King, 54, from Wolverhampton, said: "I've seen them a few times and they're always amazing, there is just something about Damon's voice, it's so good.
"I've been a Blur fan for about 30 years, I've been to the old halls, It looks amazing from what I have seen, I can't wait."
On April 26 fans had a mere two minutes to snag one of the coveted tickets before they were completely sold out. Fans from across the country flocked to AXS.com to get their chance at getting a pass.
