President and CEO of TEG DAINTY, Paul Dainty said today “I am thrilled that Hugh is bringing his world tour and new to New Zealand audiences. Fans can expect to hear some of his greatest successes from stage and screen, including songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables and other Broadway shows.”

The Grammy Award winning The Greatest Showman soundtrack has broken sales records the world over and earned the title of 2018’s best-selling album in the world. The album has reached multi-platinum status in multiple countries including Australia, the UK and America.

Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen, to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.

Jackman garnered his first Academy Award® nomination, for Best Actor, for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, based on the popular stage show created from Victor Hugo’s famous novel of the same name.

Jackman’s standout performance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination. Most recently, he was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman.

Actress and singer Keala Settle is the breakout star of 20th Century Fox’s, The Greatest Showman, alongside Hugh Jackman. The Hawaii native’s performance of the film’s Oscar-nominated song “This Is Me” became an explosive anthem of self-acceptance, propelling the soundtrack to the top of the charts worldwide. Her performance at the 2018 Academy Awards brought the entire audience to their feet with a performance that The New York Times applauded as “commanding” and a perfect summation of “what became the themes of the night – diversity, empowerment, [and] inclusion.”
