The Utah Jazz are opening Vivint Smart Home Arena to public tours Tuesday, Sept. 26, marking the completion of the arena's top-to-bottom, $125-million renovation, the team announced Tuesday.

The day begins at 10 a.m. with a ceremony to reveal a new, 14-foot tall Jazz "J-Note" logo statue on the northeast plaza.

The arena will then be open until 1:30 p.m. for interested fans to take self-guided tours to see upgrades to all six levels of the arena, which include a 12,000-square-foot atrium with an exclusive Jazz Team Store, redesigned concourses, new cushioned seats in the bowl, new restaurants and upgraded Jazz locker room facilities.

The first event in the refurbished arena is a Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert Sept. 27.

The first Jazz game is a preseason affair against the Sydney (Australia) Kings on Oct. 2.
