The Pakistan-born singer was playing one of just three UK dates on Saturday 29th August as the historic venue provided the perfect acoustics and setting for a night to remember.

Hosted by BBC Asian Network presenter, Anuksha Arora, the night opened with a performance from Bollywood singer and local entrepreneur Jas Wouhra.

Performing a selection of his new compositions, the highly regarded singer had the crowd dancing on their feet, with a Bollywood vibe spreading throughout the building.

Songs from the night have already been taken up by producers for a new Punjabi and Hindi film, and only add to the success for Mr Wouhra, who a few years back, performed at Wembley Arena and Leicester’s De Montfort Hall alongside Sunithi Chauhan and KK.

With the 2,000-plus crowd now on their feet, it was time for headline act Atif Aslam to take to the stage.

Greeted by a chorus of screams and applause, the 32-year-old gave his usual flawless performance, mixing old and new tracks to the delight of all in attendance.

Deemed a huge success by the lucky ticket-holders, the programme was sponsored by Rock Star promotions who continue to bring stars from Bollywood and Lollywood to the UK.

Mr Wouhra commented: “It is events like this that bring a lot of interest to the city of Birmingham, attracting audiences from different parts of the country.”
