Wolverine isn’t hitting the road for a world tour, but Hugh Jackman most certainly is.

The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical veteran and international film star — who plays Wolverine in the “X-Men” film franchise — on Thursday morning announced his 2019 “The Man. The Music. The Show.” world concert tour.

It opens May 13 in Hamburg, Germany, and closes with a pair of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl on July 19 and 20. The first of Jackman’s four California concerts is July 16 at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center. All tour dates and cities appear below, along with ticket information.

The Australian actor won a Tony Award in 2004 for his performance in the musical “The Boy From Oz.” His performance as Jean Valjean in the film version of “Les Misérables” earned him a Golden Globe award and an Academy Award nomination.

In 2017, Jackman starred in the worldwide hit film musical “The Greatest Showman,” in which he played the role of legendary circus impresario PT Barnum.

Jackman, 50, should have plenty of songs to perform on his upcoming tour, for which he will be accompanied by an orchestra.

He has been featured on the soundtrack albums for the musicals “Beauty and the Beast,” “Oklahoma!” and “The Boy from Oz.” Last year’s “The Greatest Showman: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” topped the charts in six countries, including the U.S.

Jackman does not sing in his latest film, “The Front Runner,” in which he plays the role of embattled 1988 U.S. presidential candidate Gary Hart.

Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. local time for all but three of Jackman’s North American tour dates, and at 9 a.m. local time the same day for his concerts in Europe and the U.K.

The on-sale date for his two Hollywood Bowl shows will be announced soon. Tickets for his Madison Square Garden shows go on sale Monday, Dec. 10, at 10 a.m. local time.

Ticket prices for Jackman’s July 16 San Diego concert range from $25.50 to $225 each, plus service charges, and will be available online at and by phone at (888) 929-7849.
