Human Nature, Australia's vocal group sensation, announced today a new headlining residency at The Venetian Las Vegas. The new show, titled Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show will begin on Saturday, January 19, 2013.
Calling Las Vegas home since 2009, Human Nature came to Las Vegas as the #1 vocal group in Australia and quickly became one of the Las Vegas Strip’s favorite shows. Performing to sold-out audiences regularly, the multi-platinum selling band has brought the classic Motown sound full circle. Human Nature has released nine albums, five of which went to #1 in their native continent, selling millions of records world-wide and garnering 23 platinum awards, 70 Top 40 hits and five Top 10 hits. Their chart-topping Motown tribute, Reach Out, went five-times-platinum, attracting the attention of famed songwriter Smokey Robinson, who recorded “Get Ready” with them and ultimately became a presenter of their Motown show. The group also toured Nationally in the U.S. in 2012, scored a #1 position on the Motown Charts and released their latest Motown CD and DVD following their PBS TV special in 2011. Human Nature will now call The Sands Showroom (formerly the Venetian Showroom) at The Venetian, a 742-seat venue, home for a two year residency. In true Las Vegas fashion, their first show at The Venetian will be their 777th show on the famed Las Vegas strip.
“We are incredibly proud to be bringing our show to one of the most iconic casinos anywhere" said Human Nature's Andrew Tierney, "The support we have had in this city has been extraordinary and we can't wait to get more and more people dancing and singing every night with our versions of the most amazing music ever produced - Motown!”
“Once we heard those smooth harmonies of Human Nature, we knew they were a perfect fit for The Venetian,” said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian and The Palazzo. “This is a show you want to tweet about the minute you step out of the theater.”
“We are thrilled to be moving our new production of this show into The Venetian Las Vegas said Producer Adam Steck, Founder and CEO of SPI Entertainment, Inc. “Human Nature has achieved incredible success in Las Vegas over the past three years. Headlining at the Venetian is a perfect match for the guys and their show and it is really a dream come true. The guys are incredibly talented and a genuine Las Vegas success story who continue to attract and thrill audiences from all over the world. I can’t wait to get started in our new home."
