Singer Hugh Jackman to tour with songs from The Greatest Showman






Hugh Jackman is going on a world tour performing songs from the Greatest Showman.

The X-Men star will also perform songs from Les Miserables and other Broadway shows accompanied by a live orchestra.



The Greatest Showman has become a worldwide phenomenon with a record breaking soundtrack, despite lukewarm reviews.



The tour will include four dates in the UK in Manchester, Birmingham and London.

The
Wolverine star was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Jean
Valjean in the movie version of the musical Les Miserables.



He won a Golden Globe for his performance and was also nominated for a Globe for his turn in The Greatest Showman.



Jackman
plays circus impresario PT Barnum in the musical film which has songs
by Tony and Oscar-winning songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.



Critics weren't keen on the film but its popularity spread by word of
mouth, with fans returning for repeat viewings and attending special
singalong screenings.



The soundtrack has also broken records around the world. It was number one in the UK album chart for 11 weeks in a row equalling Adele's record for her album 21.



It
was number one for 21 weeks in total, overtaking Saturday Night Fever
to become the longest-running number one soundtrack since the 1960s.



The Man, the Music, the Show is Jackman's first world tour.



European
shows include dates in Manchester, Paris and Hamburg, while the US tour
will take in cities including Detroit, Los Angeles and New York.



Jackman will also perform in Toronto.



He will play Manchester Arena on 24 May before Birmingham's Resorts World Arena on 27 May.

There will also be two dates at London's O2 Arena on 2 and 3 June.



Tickets go on sale 7 December 0900 GMT.
