Hugh Jackman At The Hollywood Bowl! His Live Performance Of “From Now On” And His Ryan Reynolds Joke!

Hugh Jackman Live At The Hollywood Bowl!

My wife Alex and I were lucky enough to see Hugh Jackman at the legendary Hollywood Bowl – which was packed with celebrities all eager to see the Actor/Singer/Entertainer put on a two hour+ show –

Jackman performed songs from his entire career, including

The Greatest Showman
Les Misérables
The Boy From Oz

and more from Broadway and Film – and he told great stories about all of them as well.

First and foremost, Jackman is a great stage performer – he commanded the Bowl and kept the audience riveted throughout.

The show is surprisingly candid and intimate – Jackman introduces his wife and daughter in the crowd and spends time talking about his love for them both.

The show is beautifully staged, and Jackman made perfect use of the Bowl, stepping out many times into the audience, thanks to the walkway that encircles some of the seats.

“The Man. The Music. The Show” will hit 90 cities around the world. It began on May 7 2019 and wraps October 20 in Mexico City.

The show begins with “The Greatest Show” and never slows down – Jackman wears lots of great outfits and The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra sounded flawless as usual!

The setlist has more than 20 songs from Jackman’s movie and theater career – and a special section dedicated to aboriginal music from his home country of Australia – and he tells lots of stories throughout as well!

Here is one funny moment: Jackman plays drums for the song “Jump” by Van Halen, then does some Wolverine poses and make a Ryan Reynolds joke – which he begs us not to share on social media – so of course, here it is!

Of course, the pop culture phenomenon “The Greatest Showman” was featured heavily.

Here is his performance of “From Now On” from “Showman” as he tells a great story about himself as a 19-year old in Australia.

Yes, Keala Settle from “The Greatest Showman” was part of the concert as well!

Keala Settle joined Hugh Jackman at The Hollywood Bowl and performed a rousing live rendition of “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman!” Here is that story with a live clip of her performance:

Bravo to Hugh Jackman for an incredible show!

  5. My wife adores The Greatest Showman. She would love to have seen that show, I’m sure.
    (I must be missing a ‘gene’, as I thought it was boring!) 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
