Gallery: Michael Bublé launches Barclaycard Arena

He’s the down-to-earth crooner who makes us all melt with his silky vocals.

And last night Michael Bublé rolled into town to perform a sell-out show at Birmingham’s revamped NIA – and didn’t he look happy to be there!

The concert was the first of a two-night residency at the newly-named Barclaycard Arena with the Canadian crooner performing a collection of his own hits and a number of covers – not to mention the odd Christmas favourite given the time of year.

The global superstar arrived in the second city four days ahead of his first date and posted a selfie from the Bullring’s Bank restaurant when he started his Christmas shopping on Saturday. Bublé, who has sold more than 35 million records worldwide, officially opened the new arena, which has been renamed following a two-year £26 million refurbishment.

But when the lights came up at the reworked NIA, the 39-year-old star wasted no time in letting his music do the talking.

Covers old and new were met with roars of appreciation by thousands of screaming fans with songs ranging from Pharrell Williams’ summer hit Happy to the Beatles’ All You Need Is Love. 

Fans who are lucky enough to have tickets for tonight’s performance can expect a treat.
