Jackman announced that he will have special guests accompany him on stage. One he mentioned is his “The Greatest Showman” co-star, Keala Settle, who played Lettie Lutz, the bearded lady of P.T. Barnum’s circus.

The tour will be called “The Man. The Music. The Show,” The Associated Press reported.

It will feature a live orchestra as he belts out hits from “The Greatest Showman,” “Les Miserables” and “The Boy From Oz,” among other Broadway shows and films. 

The European portion of the tour will start on May 13, 2019, in Hamburg, Germany. There will be two shows at The O2 Arena in London. The tour will move to North America on June 18 in Houston.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 7 for most shows, including engagements at arenas in Houston, Boston, New York, Atlanta and Tampa.
