Jackman announced the show at a press conference at AUT's South Campus, where he was joined by the university's choir for a rendition of Million Dreams - honouring the viral cover that four hundred school leavers performed of This Is Me at the campus last year.


Jackman said he'd seen the performance, and described it as a "bullet to my heart".

Māori Greatest Showman star Keala Settle then joined the choir for a rendition of The Greatest Showman hit This Is Me. Settle and Jackman were both visibly emotional as they were gifted taonga from AUT University.

Settle is joining Jackman on the New Zealand leg of his tour. The Hawaiian-born actress and singer performed the Oscar-nominated song This Is Me in The Greatest Showman.

Hugh Jackman's The Man. The Music. The Show. tour will take place at Auckland's Spark Arena on September 6 and 7. See Ticketmaster for tickets and details.
