Hugh Jackman left the world in a bit of a frenzy today (Thursday Nov 29) after he made a pretty big announcement, stating that he would be going on a tour around the world singing some of the biggest songs of his career.
The actor has announced that he will be reviving his one-man tour, but this time there will be songs from his time on Les Misérables and The Greatest Showman. Oh, and he’s going to be joined by some of his cast from TGS, as well. I don’t know about you, but I’m bloody excited.
Hugh will also be performing songs from the Broadway production, The Boy From Oz, from which he won his Tony award.

“This is a big dream come true for me… I’m singing, I’m dancing, I’m telling stories,” he said, mentioning that he will be backed by a 26-piece orchestra and around 30 singers and dancers. “I love going to a concert when I feel something happened that night that could only happen that night… I’m just gonna have a party.”
He also recently announced that he can see the return of Wolverine happening some time soon, but that he wouldn’t likely to be in the role. However, Hugh has stated he would like to play another superhero some time in the future, so after this tour that might be an indication of his next cinematic move.
The tour won’t kick off until next year, but Hugh will be headlining a preview set at the Rockefeller Center on Tuesday.
