Hugh Jackman took to the plaza stage this morning on The Today Show, performing opening number “The Greatest Show” from hit movie musical The Greatest Showman, which was released late last year. He was energetic as he sang and danced alongside a small group of dancers to some moves that fans will recognize from the the film.
He looked every bit as excited as he claimed to be when he spoke with The Today Show‘s Al Roker and Craig Melvin, calling the tour “The Man. The Music. The Show.” a “dream come true”.
He followed his first performance with a medley from Les Miserables, which featured “Valjean’s Soliloquy” and “One Day More”. Alongside Jackman was a choir of at least twenty other singers which will be accompanying him on the tour to sing backup.
The tour officially begins in June of 2019, with presale tickets available on Ticketmaster as early as Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. EST.
