The official Twitter page for the concert tour has also confirmed that “more international dates to be announced”.

Earlier this year it was revealed that a UK company of more than 110 actors, musicians and crew will feature and perform to audiences between 3,000 and 5,000 each night.

Plus there will also be guest stars who will be “appearing at various stops” on the world tour.

It’s being produced by Cameron Mackintosh, who said: “Since the very first concert performance of Les Misérables in Sydney in January 1989, this remarkable musical has proved to be as powerful and successful in its every manifestation.”

“Whether in its original full theatrical form, a blockbuster musical movie, or any of its numerous spectacularly staged concert performances. Over the show’s nearly 40 years existence, it has also proved to be the launch pad for an extraordinary list of stars around the world, in many different languages and countries.”

Discussing the special guests, he added: “This much anticipated world tour will be a unique opportunity for many of these celebrated performers to play their favourite roles for short periods in different parts of the world, so fans will get the chance to see their favourite stars – and mine – in their favourite musical.”
