Hugh Jackman has added a second Dublin date to his world tour

Wolverine himself will now play two nights at the 3Arena.

Yes, Hugh Jackman is indeed coming to Ireland next year for a pop concert of sorts.

And now comes the exceedingly fantastic news that the Greatest Showman will play not one, but two nights in the capital.

Due to demand, Jackman will bring his 'The Man, The Music, The Show' world tour to the 3Arena on both 30 and 31 May of 2019.

Tickets for both dates go on sale this morning - Friday 7 December - at 9am via Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide.

Jackman is no stranger to musical theatre, having starred in Les Miserables, The Greatest Showman and countless Broadway plays, so his arena-sized appointments with Ireland make perfect sense.

His world tour will give fans the chance see Jackman performing all the hit songs he has delivered throughout his career and during the show he will be accompanied by a live orchestra.

If you can't make it along to the Dublin dates, his tour will take in a number of dates around Europe and all the fun kicks off on Monday, 13 May in Hamburg, Germany.

There will also be performances in Amsterdam, Paris, Manchester and London.
