Hugh Jackman has announced a live tour that will see him perform songs from hit musicals in arenas across the world.

Jackman was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of protagonist Jean Valjean in the film version of Les Miserables in 2012, in which he starred alongside Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne. No word if he will also brandish Wolverine claws at any point in the shows, but that seems like a great tour merch item.

Hugh Jackman is reviving the one-man show he originally performed on Broadway and taking it on the road!

The Greatest Showman had particular success in the United Kingdom, with the showtrack spending nearly a full year in the album chart.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday December 7th via Ticketmaster.
