For those who haven't seen The Greatest Showman, the film "celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation".

Jackman announced his first ever world tour back in November. He will perform songs from musicals such as The Greatest Showman and Les Misérables with a live orchestra.

'Hugh Jackman - The Man. The Music. The Show' comes to 3Arena on May 30th and 31st.

Meanwhile, a sing-along screening of The Greatest Showman has been announced for 98FM's Retro Drive-In Movies.
