On Wednesday, actor and singer Hugh Jackman took his fans down memory lane when he shared pictures and videos from his Global Concert tour of 2019. 

Hugh Jackman is one of Hollywood's most famous names and starred in some of the world's biggest films, including the "X-Men" series, wherein he portrayed Wolverine. 

The actor is also a great singer and featured in award-winning and highly acclaimed musicals like "Les Miserables" and "The Greatest Showman," wherein he displayed his great singing and dancing skills.

In 2019, Jackman went on a music tour tagged "The Man. The Music. The Show." During the tour, which was held from May to October 2019, he performed hit songs from "The Greatest Showman" and "Les Miserables."

These musical renditions were followed by a live orchestra. The incredible tour earned great reviews from multiple critics, who praised him for the tour.


John Bream of Star Tribune described the tour as one of the more uncompromisingly ambitious, flashingly entertaining, and consistently uplifting tours undertaken by a performer one never expected to see in a sports arena. 

The biggest winners from Jackman's tour were fans who thronged to packed venues to catch a glimpse of their star actor and his orchestra delivering memorable songs and dance moves. 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2019 seems like many years ago, but Jackman brought back sweet memories from his tour in an Instagram post he shared on Wednesday. 

Jackman added his voice to the debate that has followed the interview by calling the duke and duchess courageous.


The 52-year-old shared pictures and videos from the tour in his post. The first video showed his hairstylist spraying his hair as he prepared for a performance, while a picture showed Jackman during a performance. 

In the video, the actor danced as the orchestra and fans joined him to sing the ending lines of the hit song "The Greatest Show" from "The Greatest Showman." Jackman captioned the video: 

"The shellacking. #tbt."


This is not the first time Jackman shared a throwback video showcasing his singing talent. In February, the actor shared a video that showed him and actor John Travolta singing Olivia Newton-John's part in "Grease." 

The video was from 2001 when Jackman and Travolta co-starred in the action film "Swordfish" and tried a duet of "Summer Lovin" from the "Grease" movie, which premiered in 1978. 


That throwback video and his recent Instagram post are in many ways likely to make fans look forward to the multiple movie musicals set to be released this year. 

Meanwhile, the world has been rocked with the revelations from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, with many people commenting on it. 

Jackman added his voice to the debate that has followed the interview by calling the duke and duchess courageous, adding that their mental health comments are such an incredible example to never worry alone.
