Hugh Jackman has revealed that his world tour will be full of surprises and quite frankly, we believe him. After all, the idea of Wolverine up on stage singing musical numbers is surprise enough.

“Doing an arena show, for me, is perhaps the ultimate because of the amount of energy and excitement that you can create,” Jackman told NME. “Surprisingly to me, after doing an arena show in Australia three years ago, you can create a special kind of intimacy.

“It has to be specially crafted. When I go to arenas I love it when people go off-script. You know, like when Adele starts going on about her day, her babysitter, this and that – you love it. You feel like something happened just that night. It’s always been my template for theatre. Nothing can replace the live aspect where something can happen that night.”

He later added: “There will be surprises. Not only will there be some guests, but there will be some stuff that people wouldn’t associate me with. Also, some of the stories I tell will be surprising. I want this show to be more revealing and more personal than ever before.”

Hugh Jackman will be on tour with his live orchestra and will play songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables and The Boy From Oz. You can buy tickets and find out more here.
