The biggest night in UK music opened in grand style with the biggest star from the biggest musical movie on top a mountain of red jackets. It may be a ceremony to celebrate pop music, but the Greatest Showman soundtrack has dominated music charts around the world throughout 2018. Jackman performed The Greatest Show, just one of his numbers from the smash-hit movie. British fans will have another chance to see him do all this and much more when he returns to the O2 Arena plus major shows in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester in just a few months.
Hugh Jackman – The Man. The Music. The Show. Tour (yes, that is the rather dramatic way it is punctuated) will see the Tony Award-winning musicals legend take to the stage in Manchester, Birmingham and London in May 2019.
He will be accompanied by a live orchestra and give fans exactly what they want with a roof-raising array of songs from The Greatest Showmen, as well as his other huge box office musical smash, Les Miserables.
Fans should probably expect a tune or two from Oklahoma. Jackman made his UK musicals debut in the classic show back in 1998.
It was the moment he was introduced to the world as a budding star of stage AND screen.
The talented star also won a Tony Award in 2004 for his lead role in The Boy From Oz, the musical based on the life and music of Peter Allen.
Among many other recordings, Jackman performed on the soundtrack for animated film Happy Feet.
