Hugh Jackman is going on a world tour, performing songs from The Greatest Showman
The actor will also perform songs from Les Misérables and other hit musicals, accompanied by a live orchestra.
The tour, titled The Man. The Music. The Show., will include four UK dates in Manchester, Birmingham and London.
The X-Men star was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Jean Valjean in the 2012 movie version of the musical Les Misérables.
He also won a Golden Globe for his performance and was nominated for another for his portrayal of P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman.
The soundtrack to The Greatest Showman, which includes the songs 'This is Me' and 'Never Enough', exploded in popularity following the film’s release. It was the UK’s No. 1 album for a total of 21 weeks, and is the UK’s best-selling album of 2018.
On his tour, Jackman plans to sing songs from the film, written by Oscar-winning songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
In what will be his first world tour, Jackman has planned dates in London, Paris and Hamburg, as well as US dates in Detroit, Los Angeles and New York.
