Wolverine is coming to Arizona next year; not as Wolverine, but as the actor that brought him to life -- Mr. Hugh Jackman.

The Tony Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor announced an international world tour on Thursday where he'll perform songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables, and The Boy From Oz alongside a live orchestra.

According to an online schedule, the tour will visit Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona on July 14, 2019. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. You can buy tickets here.

A limited number of VIP tickets will be available. Ticket prices were not listed.

In 2004, Jackman won the Tony Award for best actor in a musical for his performance in The Boy From Oz.

In 2015, he received an Oscar nomination for "Actor in a Leading Role" for his role as Jean Valjean in the movie-adaptation of Les Miserables. He hosted the Oscars in 2009.
