The greatest showman? Hugh Jackman announces world tour

While it's unclear exactly which songs will be on Jackman's set list when the tour begins, Variety reports that many of them will come from musicals that he's associated with already.

Jackman has been teasing a "huge announcement" on his Twitter, which he will officially reveal on The Today Show this morning.

Most importantly, he starred as P.T. Barnum in last year's circus musical The Greatest Showman, the soundtrack to which has become a multiplatinum sensation, spawning sing-along screenings and talk of a Broadway adaptation.

In both the United Kingdom and America it reached multi-platinum status, selling more than two million copies apiece.
