Hugh Jackman announces live concert dates (really)

jackman-gi.jpgThanks to director Darren Aronofsky's abrupt departure from "The Wolverine," star Hugh Jackman was left with a bit of extra time on his hands. He's making the most of it by mounting a two-week stage show at San Francisco's Curran Theater.

Jackman, who showed off his song-and-dance-man-ship hosting both the 2007 Tony Awards and the 2009 Oscars, will perform his "favorite Hollywood and Broadway musical numbers backed by a 17-piece orchestra." Tickets for the show, which will run May 3-15, are already on sale.

Since we enjoyed it so much the first time around, let's re-watch Jackman's Academy Awards opening number to get a little taste of what's in store:
