Hugh Jackman has added a third Dublin performance to his The Man. The Music. The Show. world tour after selling out the other dates earlier this week. 

The Greatest Showman star will now play a 2pm matinee show at Dublin's 3Arena on Friday, May 31 2019, along with his evening performances at the venue on May 30 and 31. 

Tickets for the matinee show go on sale this Tuesday, December 11, at 9am from usual outlets nationwide.

The tour will see Jackman performing songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables "and more from Broadway and film", accompanied by an orchestra.

Ahead of the tour, Jackman will next be seen on cinema screens as former US Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart in the political biopic The Front Runner. It opens on Friday, January 11 2019.

Jackman recently said he would be open to doing a sequel to The Greatest Showman but admitted it wouldn't be an easy task to reprise his role as PT Barnum.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: ''If a genuine opportunity came up where it felt like the right thing to do, then yep, I'd get the top hat back out.''

Jackman added: ''I'm not sure what they would do, but it did take a while to get the first one up, and it's not to be underestimated how difficult it is to get a musical up and going.

''But it's clear to me and to everyone that people love these characters. I loved this movie, I loved this character and it was one of the great joys of my life.''

The Greatest Showman is among the nominees for next year's Grammy Awards in the US. It is shortlisted for Best Song Written for Visual Media (This is Me) and Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. The awards take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 10.
