With the huge stage, video screen and sea of cheering fans it could have been any major world concert venue.

But a smattering of Wolves shirts amid the crowd was a reminder that this was Molineux Stadium.

And Bon Jovi's performance there last night was the biggest gig ever to rock the city, with the football ground transformed beyond recognition as 34,000 rock fans gathered to see their idols in action last night.

Wolverhampton had never seen anything like it before and an electric atmosphere hit the city as people of all ages travelled from near and far for the spectacular night.
Excitable women favouring a raunchy rock chick look with big hair, lipgloss, tight tops, leather and denim were in a frenzy at the thought of seeing the rock gods in the flesh.

They mingled with teenagers, families and long-haired male fans who chose an image to emulate their idols and enthusiastically played their air guitars.

Eager fans arrived early in the day hoping to catch a glimpse of Bon Jovi arriving.

Police blocked off the road to allow the multi-million-selling band a safe entrance into the stadium before they kicked off their set.

Arriving in rockstar uniform of faded jeans, cut-off vest and sunglasses, sexy star Jon Bon Jovi thrilled crowds with a wave before heading into Molineux.

Queues formed to all the entrances to the ground as tickets were carefully checked by stewards to prevent people sneaking in.

Traffic plans and parking advice appeared to have been a success, with members of the public saying there had been minimal disruption.

Several people had brought mini-picnics with them to enjoy in the afternoon sun before the gates opened at 5pm and the whole area around Molineux was buzzing with excitement.
