Australia’s HUMAN NATURE, one of the world’s greatest vocal groups, undoubtedly set the Strip on fire when their celebrated “MOTOWN Show” opened years ago. It goes without saying that their energy, talent and passion for music and the art of stage performance consistently kept sold-out audiences dazzled and dancing. Recently, to the delight of fans everywhere, the celebrated foursome announced that they would be unveiling a brand new show, set in the Sands Showroom in The Venetian.
“JUKEBOX”, aptly named, will see HUMAN NATURE’S Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney, backed by a dynamic six-piece band and world-class dancers, celebrate a mix of pop classics with doo wop, boy band, Bandstand, soul standards, Motown… and even some “Uptown Funk.” “JUKEBOX” is not only a playlist of the group’s influences, but some of the most-loved hit songs from the best vocal artists and groups of all time, including “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Stand By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Dance To The Music” and “Under The Boardwalk.”
“We pinch ourselves as four Australians to be so heartily embraced by American music fans,” explains group member Phil Burton. “We’ll be playing music from all eras, and we’ll throw in some Motown and some music from our pop career and the ‘boy band’ days. We’ll be highlighting what ‘boy bands’ have been like through the ages - not only a guilty pleasure of great songs, but a jukebox unto themselves.”
The “JUKEBOX” concept was inspired by HUMAN NATURE’S Australian platinum selling album of the same name, which will be released in North America in 2016. The album was executive produced by the legendary Bob Rock (Michael Bublé/Metallica) and was co-produced by David Pierce (Michael Bublé /Robbie Williams). Pierce joins HUMAN NATURE at The Venetian as a musical collaborator for the “JUKEBOX” experience.
Along with the Motown hits they have famously reinterpreted such as “Dancing In The Street,” HUMAN NATURE will also perform soul standards like “Gimme Some Lovin’” and “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher,” plus old and new pop hits in “Twist And Shout” to today’s chart toppers such as “All About That Bass” and “Shake It Off.” Fans in the audience will quickly see that this “JUKEBOX” plays everything from The Temptations to Taylor Swift, from The Beatles to Bruno Mars.
Experience this new milestone with the group that has been together since school days, now celebrating their 26th year together. HUMAN NATURE “JUKEBOX” is performed Tuesday through Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. Tickets start at $49.50 + taxes and fees and VIP options are available. Tickets can be purchased at any Venetian or Palazzo box office or by calling (702) 414-9000 or visit online at HumanNatureLive.com or Venetian.com.
