Latest: Hugh Jackman fans are being warned not to purchase tickets for his world tour on ticket website Viagogo.

Hugh Jackman's 'The Man, The Music, The Show' tour is sold out for Dublin's Arena on May 30 and 31 next year.

Aiken Promotions says there is no proof tickets appearing online actually exist.

A second date for Jackman's first ever world tour was announced this morning in anticipation of the huge demand for tickets.

In a statement, Viagogo said: “The tickets sold on Viagogo’s platform are genuine tickets that have been sold on by the original ticket purchaser in good faith. Viagogo is a marketplace and doesn’t buy or sell tickets.

"Viagogo provides a platform for third party sellers to sell tickets to event goers.”
