X-Men star Hugh Jackman has got his fans in a tizz after revealing how much he’s looking forward to appearing in Glasgow tonight.
The Aussie star, appearing in his The Man. The Music. The Show at the SSE Hydro on a three-night run, posted images of the stage on his Facebook page with the simple message, ‘Tonight’.
The Hollywood A-lister is performing his opening night at the 13,000-capacity venue and his message went down well with eager fans as over 5,000 people ‘liked’ it.
Fiona McKay, said: “So excited that you’re in Glasgow. Can’t wait for tomorrow and Thursday.”
Another fan, an expectant mum, is also looking forward to the show. Jennifer Gibson said: “Excited for tonight. Hope we make it to the seats at the top at 37 weeks pregnant.”
Meanwhile, Janice Stewart Doig has put in the miles for the gig. She posted: “On our way!! I’ve come from Barcelona for this!!”
Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the hit superhero franchise, has been exploring Scotland ahead of his Hydro gigs. After a boating trip to Loch Lomond, he wasted no time in tucking into some local cuisine in the shape of a deep fried Mars bar.
And the star admitted his stomach was reeling after trying out the famed snack during a visit to a local chippy in Clydebank .
Hugh said: “I liked my deep fried Mars bar but I don’t think my guts appreciated it.”
The star and his posse dropped into Clydebank on their way back to Glasgow from Loch Lomond on Sunday, hoping to try the famous deep fried Mars bar delicacy.
When staff at Bennies Chip Shop on Kilbowie Road said they didn’t have it on the menu, Hugh and his gang went to buy the chocolate from a Spar supermarket next door.
Hugh also tried that other famous Scottish chip shop delicacy, the pizza crunch.
Bennies counter assistant Margaret Tosh served Hugh.
She said: “He was such a nice person and very down to earth. He really enjoyed it and said the food was amazing.
“Maybe he just can’t take good solid Scottish food.”
Jackman will be singing tunes from hit film The Greatest Showman as well as the music Les Miserables.
He’ll also be belting out favourites from the likes of Irving Berlin, Gene Kelly and Fred Ast
