Hugh Jackman has been spotted at Auckland Airport.

The multi-talented entertainer is in the country ahead of his two shows at Spark Arena.

In a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday night, the 50-year-old can be seen pulling a suitcase through the airport, stopping briefly to sign an autograph. 

Jackman has been touring 'The Man. The Music. The Show' in Australia, and will kick off his world tour in Auckland this weekend, with shows on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. 

He'll perform songs from his popular films Les Misérables and The Greatest Showman as well as other show tunes. 

Māori singer and actor Keala Settle, who co-starred with Jackman in The Greatest Showman, will join him on stage.

Last week Jackman posted a blurry Instagram video filmed in the bush south of Brisbane in which he discussed his excitement about coming to New Zealand. 

"I cannot wait to get there next weekend to do shows for the very first time," he said. "I know Keala is super excited to go back to the country she was born in."

After finishing up in Auckland, Jackman will move on to the US leg of his tour, beginning with a show in Boston on October 1.
