Hugh Jackman will perform songs from The Greatest Showman live for the first time when he visits the United Kingdom during his debut world tour.

Jackman posted an image on Twitter announcing his show.

For all those who were hoping that Hugh Jackman's "big announcement" on Thursday morning would somehow be Wolverine related, prepare to be disappointed, as the news has nothing to do with a reprisal of his iconic Marvel Comics role.

Announcing the news on Instagram, the actor known for playing Wolverine in the X-Men series told fans he would arrive in the United Kingdom in May.

The show promises songs from "Broadway and film, accompanied by a live orchestra".

The Greatest Showman had particular success in the United Kingdom, with the showtrack spending nearly a full year in the album chart.

Jackman has maintained a stage presence over the years and starred as Peter Allen in the award-winning "Boy From Oz".

Tickets for the North American shows go on sale to the general public Friday, Dec. 7, with ticket sales for the Salt Lake show opening at 10 a.m. MST.

The tour will be hitting the United Kingdom in May and June 2019 with shows at the Manchester Arena (on 24 May), Birmingham's Resorts World Arena (27 May) and London's 02 Arena (3 and 7 June).
