Charming A-list actor Hugh Jackman will be coming to Atlanta's State Farm Arena next year to sing Broadway and movie classics.

The “X-Men” star will be coming July 3 and plans to sing songs from his hit 2018 movie “The Greatest Showman” and the 2012 version of “Les Miserables” as well as other Broadway classics.

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 7.

Australian native Jackman has been an Academy Award nominee (lead actor in “Les Miz”) and won a Golden Globes, an Emmy and two Tonys including the 2004 Tony for best male actor in a musical for “The Boy From Oz.”

He has hosted the Tony Awards four times and did the Oscars as well.

If you haven’t heard him sing, here’s a sampling:

Jackman shot the action thriller "Prisoners" with Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis in Atlanta in 2013. It grossed a respectable $61 million domestically and about the same amount in foreign countries, with an estimated $46 million budget, according to boxofficemojo.com.
