Hugh Jackman is coming to Manchester to sing The Greatest Showman, Les Mis and more on his first one man world tour


Stop everything. Hollywood superstar Hugh Jackman has announced he is heading to Manchester on his first ever world music tour.

The Greatest Showman star will start the UK leg of the tour right here at the Manchester Arena on May 24th, 2019.

And demand for tickets was so huge, he swiftly added two EXTRA shows in Manchester on Saturday May 25th as well.

He will go on to perform in Birmingham and two nights at London’s O2 Arena on his tour entitled The Man The Music The Show.

The actor will sing a host of songs from the global hit movies he has starred in, The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables, backed by a live orchestra.

The Australian star played circus owner PT Barnum in The Greatest Showman, which became a word-of-mouth hit despite a lukewarm response from the critics.  It spawned a chart-topping soundtrack album, with songs including The Greatest Show and A Million Dreams.

He was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Jean Valjean in the big screen version of hit musical Les Miserables in 2012, and is also known for his role as Wolverine in The X Men series of movies.

He is expected to cause something of a stir when he opens the show at The Brits awards ceremony on Wednesday February 20th, and we really can’t wait.

Tickets for Hugh Jackman’s tour are on sale now.  For remaining availability, see below.
