Hugh Jackman will play four dates in the UK as part of his upcoming The Man. The Music. The Show world tour.

The stage and screen star, known for his roles in The Greatest Showman, X-Men, Logan, the film adaptation of Les Misérables, Jez Butterworth's The River and A Steady Rain, will embark on his world tour in Spring 2019, and will perform alongside a live orchestra.

Jackman will perform hit songs from films like The Greatest Showman and shows like Les Misérables (as well as other Broadway and film classics) at the concerts. He made his UK stage debut in Trevor Nunn's revival of Oklahoma! in 1998, and was nominated for an Olivier Award for his performance.

He will appear at Manchester Arena on 24 and 25 May, before performing at the Birmingham Resorts World Arena on 27 May at 1pm and 7pm and on 28 May and London's O2 Arena from 2 to 7 June.

It has also been confirmed that Keala Settle, who starred in The Greatest Showman with Jackman and performed "This Is Me", will join Jackman for her tour dates in Manchester, Birmingham and London. Her other credits include the original Broadway production of Waitress.

A new pair of dates has been added for the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, where Jackman will appear on 7 and 8 May. Tickets are on sale now.
