Hugh Jackman Is Bringing His World Tour To Australia

Hugh Jackman has finally announced he'll be bringing his musical world tour down under.

The triple-threat will be performing hits from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables and a number of Broadway shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane this August.

Jackman announced the news in Sydney with his Greatest Showman co-star Keala Settle and the pair performed a few tracks alongside the Australian Girls Choir.

Settle will appear as a guest of honour on the Australian leg of Jackman's musical tour -- so you can expect an extra special rendition of their Oscar-nominated track, "This Is Me".

Jackman said he knew from the very beginning that Settle deserved a starring role in The Greatest Showman. 

"I kept saying to the director 'I don't know what role she's going to play but Keala has to be in it'."

The Front Runner star added that he "definitely has plans" for a few more special guests for the live shows but will be keeping the cameos a secret until August.

The Greatest Showman director, Michael Gracey, recently told The Sun that it was "only natural" that the smash film would get the green light for a sequel.

“So those discussions have started and we are working on one right now.”

But until then, you can look forward to seeing Hugh live in just a few months, with tickets going on sale next week.
