Hugh Jackman to perform his Greatest Showman songs and more on world tour

The Australian will also sing tracks from Les Miserables and Oklahoma.

Hugh Jackman has announced details of his first ever world tour, on which he will perform songs from films he has starred in, including The Greatest Showman. 

The Australian actor will sing and dance across America and Europe in 2019 for what he describes as a "one-man stage show", backed by a 26 piece orchestra and 30 singers and dancers. The star has previously performed a similar show on Broadway and in Australia.

"This is a dream come true for me," he said, announcing the news on Good Morning America. "I love going to a concert where I feel something happens that night that could only happen that night. I'm just going to have a party". 

While firm dates have yet to be announced, Jackman also confirmed he will be joined by Greatest Showman co-star Keala Settle, who sings the movie's most popular song, This Is Me. 

As well as The Greatest Showman, Jackman will also perform songs from Les Miserables, which he starred in the movie adaptation of in 2012, plus musicals he's previously appeared in, including The Boy From Oz and Oklahoma. 

The Greatest Showman has been a runaway success in 2018, dominating the box office and the Official Charts, with the cast recording logging 21 weeks at Number 1 in the UK to become the biggest album of the year so far

Several songs from the film have also reached the Official Singles Chart, including This Is Me, Rewrite The Stars and The Greatest Show, inspiring a 'reimagined' album of stars including Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Panic! At The Disco covering the tracks.
