Jackman, who portrayed American showman PT Barnum in the box office smash, will bring his tour, which is backed by a live orchestra, to the city’s Hydro on May 7 and 8.

However, minutes after tickets went on sale this morning at 9am, fans have inundated Twitter, blasting Ticketmaster while claiming briefs sold out within minutes for both dates.

One fan fumed: “Absolutely ridiculous @TicketmasterUK @TheSSEHydro went on 9am for @RealHughJackman tickets for you to say there's none left?! No way the whole arena was sold out for two nights on a pre-sale. Get it sorted. Normal people can't get a ticket but spam sites can  £82 for the back!”

Another said: “@TicketmasterUK  Well yet again you have FAILED. Apparently NO Hugh Jackman tickets available on any date in GLASGOW as soon as tickets sales began. #ridiculous #rubbishsite #disappointed #yetagain.”

The Golden Globe-winning actor will kick off his tour with the newly-added Scottish shows, before heading to European cities including Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg, Zurich, Switzerland and Paris.

He will perform in Manchester and Birmingham later in May, before appearing for a five-date residency at London’s O2 Arena in June.

Despite mixed reviews from critics, The Greatest Showman was a box office success and its soundtrack has topped the charts in the UK for 28 non-consecutive weeks.

In both the UK and America it reached multi-platinum status, selling more than two million copies apiece.
