Human Nature: The Motown Show In Las Vegas

Calling Las Vegas home since 2009, Human Nature came to the performing mecca 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 to critical acclaim.

“We are extremely proud of this achievement,” said Human Nature’s Andrew Tierney. “We have been performing together as a group for over 24 years, and it’s amazing that 1,000 of our shows in the U.S. have been in Las Vegas. It’s an honor to perform in front of people who have travelled from every corner of the world to Las Vegas and into our theater. Each and every show is special to the group and we are truly grateful to the audiences, fans, our band and partners.”
