Hugh Jackman is headed home to check an item off his bucket list – a live concert tour of his native country.

“Anybody who knows me knows that keeping secrets is not my forte,” the Pan actor told reporters in Sydney on Monday, the AP reported. “Today is the announcement of a true bucket-list moment for me.”

Jackman, 46, promises that fans in Australia “will get to know the real me” during the Broadway to Oz show based on his successful one-man show on Broadway.

The show will mix songs with Jackman’s own storytelling, and he’ll perform with choirs, dancers and musicians, singing songs from shows he was part of – or dreamed of being a part of, according to the AP.

Jackman shared the concert poster – and his own excitement about the show – on Instagram.

“LIVE IN CONCERT. Broadway To Oz,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself in front of a microphone, tux shirt unbuttoned. “#DreamComeTrue.”

Although Jackman is most famous for playing Wolverine (a role in which he’s hinted he’ll retire from), he won a Tony Award as lead actor in the musical The Boy From Oz and has been a repeat host of the awards show. The star also earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables.

The eight-date concert tour opens in Melbourne on Nov. 24, followed by stops in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane.
