The Greatest Showman

Having dominated both the film and recorded music industries this year, where left is there for ‘The Greatest Showman’ to go? That’s right, the live music industry. Hugh Jackman is coming for your market share in 2019.

Despite reviews that were not exactly glowing, ‘The Greatest Showman’ became a huge hit in cinemas. Its spin-off soundtrack album is the year’s biggest seller – to the point that a second version featuring various pop stars covering its songs was released earlier this month.

Now the film’s star, Hugh Jackman, is going on tour to perform songs from the film with a live orchestra. To bulk it out a bit, he will also perform songs from ‘Les Miserables’ and other Broadway shows he’s been in.

The tour is set to wind its way around North America and Europe next year, with four dates in the UK, which are as follows:

24 May: Manchester Arena
27 May: Birmingham, Resorts World Arena
2 Jun: London, O2 Arena
3 Jun: London, O2 Arena

Tickets go on sale on 7 Dec.
