We have been cranking things up here lately with more than usual on our plates! We often pride ourselves on being hard workers and right now is no exception. August 17th will see the release of our brand new album Romance Of The Jukebox which has been such an awesome group of songs to work with. We think they sound amazing and we are excited for you all to be able to hear the entire album really soon. Make sure you you pre-save on Spotify and pre-order here!
You may have already had a taste of Love Train and the brand new original on the album, Little More Love, but there are so many more incredible songs yet to come… watch this space!
The other exciting thing about releasing the album is we get to go home back to Australia for 2 weeks to support the release. And we will be appearing on everything you can imagine while we’re back there – TV, radio, in store appearances and signings. As well as a one off show at The Star in Sydney on August 21st. This show will see us performing some of the songs from Romance Of The Jukebox for the very first time in front of a live crowd and we’ve been hard at work learning some new moves to go along with them and we can’t wait to see what you guys think!
Of course if you can’t make that show (we’re sorry everybody else), you will certainly be able to see us on some of your favourite Aussie TV shows and rest assured we will be doing a bona fide arena tour next year for everyone.
That’s right! We will be touring Australia nationally April/May 2019 with our Little More Love – A 30 Year Celebration Tour. I know – it doesn’t look like we’ve been together for 30 years 😉 As you’ve signed up to our newsletter you’ll be sent exclusive access to pre-sale tickets tomorrow at 8am.
We will be delving deep into 3 decades together as a group to bring you undoubtedly the biggest show of our career – we can’t wait.
We are already preparing the production that will see our US band come to Australia and some additional talented Australian musicians set to join the production. We are also very excited to have the supremely talented Dami Im as our very special guest as well! Dami has joined us for a duet on Romance of The Jukebox.
You can catch our Little More Love – A 30 Year Celebration Tour all over Australia on the following dates:
Friday 26 April – Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, Gold Coast
Saturday 27 April, Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Monday 29 April, Entertainment Centre, Adelaide
Wednesday 1 May, Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne
Saturday 4 May, Perth Arena, Perth
Monday 6 May, AIS Arena, Canberra
Tuesday 7 May, Entertainment Centre, Wollongong
Thursday 9 May, Entertainment Centre, Newcastle
Friday 10 May, ICC Sydney Theatre, Sydney
Thank you again and again for all the support you give us and I hope that you have a chance to get into Romance Of The Jukebox as soon as you can – we are so proud of it. We can’t wait to land back into our hometown of Sydney next week to launch the album & tour in person !
Yours excitedly (to be escaping a couple of weeks of the Vegas summer 😰),

Inspired by “Christmas In July,” HUMAN NATURE, one of the world’s greatest pop vocal groups and a true Las Vegas success story announce their special ROCKIN’ HOLIDAY JUKEBOX performances for a limited engagement beginning November 27, 2018, at The Sands Showroom inside The Venetian® Las Vegas. The holiday shows will celebrate the sounds of the season and, of course, some of the classic jukebox songs that have audiences on their feet nightly at The Venetian. In addition, expect to hear
some new material from the group’s forthcoming CD, “Romance of the JUKEBOX,” on Legacy
Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, available worldwide August 17, 2018.
Though the group has performed more than 1,000 shows at The Venetian, for 16 performances
only, the awesome Aussies will turn their classic JUKEBOX into a special holiday edition of their
acclaimed show. Due to the critical and audience acclaim of their previous holiday shows, the group is bringing this full holiday show take-over back by popular demand – something the
group and The Venetian have become renowned for as the ultimate holiday destination in Las Vegas. You never know — Rudolph may even stop by via a Venetian gondola – this will be the Holiday Spirit like never before!
These limited holiday performances will celebrate some of the favorites from the group’s best-
selling CD’s, The Christmas Album & The Deluxe Version, including “Christmas Baby Please
Come Home,” “White Christmas,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Let It Snow” and
“Winter Wonderland. In addition, there will also be a flurry of classics from their hit JUKEBOX
“Last Christmas we added a special holiday ‘juke joint’ section to our show but, this year we
decided to go full out with spreading the holiday cheer by hitting ‘play’ on a rockin’ holiday
jukebox of classics!” said Human Nature’s Phil Burton. “We love performing holiday music
because it’s a guaranteed way to bring smiles and joy to audiences and we can’t wait until we
make it snow (literally) on stage at The Venetian.”
JUKEBOX is an infectious, 90-minute, nonstop extravaganza of energy as the band belts out
chart toppers with a Tyson knockout punch – it’s a winner the entire way,” said the legendary
Robin Leach. He also sang the praises of this talented quartet’s Christmas delivery: “The
[Human Nature] show is full of tidings of great joy and songs of wondrous delight, and it’s all a
truly beautiful and entertaining musical night.”
JUKEBOX has been praised by critics and fans for its broad musical offering and flawless
production being declared “an incredibly addictive evening of entertainment.” The show
effortlessly mixes pop classics from their back catalogue with Doo-wop, Motown, Soul standards
and more – offering the ultimate playlist – live! HUMAN NATURE’S foursome, Toby Allen, Phil
Burton and brothers, Andrew and Mike Tierney, are joined on stage by a dynamic band, The
Jukebox All-Stars, and world-class dancers, as they celebrate a mix of musical genres that
covers classic hits as well as chart topping hits of today.
JUKEBOX is not only a playlist of the groups influences, but some of the most-loved hit songs
from the best vocal artists and groups of all time, including “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Stand
By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Higher and Higher,” “Dance To The Music” and “Under The
Boardwalk.” They show that this “Jukebox” plays everything from The Temptations to
Timberlake, from The Beatles to Bruno Mars.
A collection of some of the most-loved hit songs from the best vocal artists and groups of all
time, Human Nature’s newest CD release, “Jukebox – The Ultimate Playlist,” features such
classics as “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Stand By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Be My Baby”
and “Under The Boardwalk,” reinterpreted with the group’s stellar sound as well as two original
songs. The CD debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and was premiered
with a performance on THE TODAY SHOW.
Human Nature’s, career statistics are staggering. Since signing to Sony Music Australia over
two decades ago, Human Nature have sold more than 2.5 million albums, earned 27 platinum
awards, scored 17 Top 40 hits and have had five Top Ten tracks worldwide. Standout moments
in Human Nature’s career to date include performing to a global audience at the Sydney
Olympics in 2000, opening for Michael Jackson and Celine Dion at concerts around the world
and appearing on television in the USA on shows as varied as The Talk, Today Show, Oprah,
and Dancing With The Stars as well as their two PBS specials Human Nature Sings Motown
and Human Nature “Jukebox: In Concert from The Venetian.”
HUMAN NATURE’S ROCKIN’ HOLIDAY JUKEBOX performs November 27-30, December 1,
4-7, 13-15, 16 (at 2:00 pm) 18-22, and 23 (at 2:00 pm) 2018; all shows are at 7:30 p.m. in The Sands Showroom at The Venetian Las Vegas. Tickets range from $49.95 to $99.95 + taxes and

I honestly hope this past month has been awesome for you all in someway or another… it sure has been for me… busy but awesome!!
In between continuing our show nightly in Las Vegas, we’ve been working round the clock and we’re so excited to share with you our brand new studio album: Romance Of The Jukebox
ROMANCE OF THE JUKEBOX is set for our FIRST EVER WORLDWIDE RELEASE via our incredible Sony Music family and it’s now available for pre-order!
It sounds so lush and amazing as the entire album is a collection of fantastic songs with soaring string arrangements, soulful vocals and always a jolt of good-time feels. The album has been produced by Steve Fitzmaurice who has given the world Sam Smith ‘Stay With Me” most recently and then so many amazing records over the last few decades. This has been a labor of love for him too so as a team effort, it stands as one of our finest.
I was thrilled to write a new and original song for the set as well so for new those always listening out for some original HN, there’s a song called ‘LITTLE MORE LOVE’ which is sounds like an instant favorite.
If you pre-order our album now you’ll be able to listen to our tracks before everyone else, starting with ‘Love Train’ which was just released yesterday as our first instant grat (IG), so click here. You can also head over to our HN YouTube to check out the full video and last but not least, please remember to pre-save on Spotify!
This past Month has been a particularly exciting time for me personally —- my little girl Violette starting to watch Frozen! Well, seriously on top of that thrill, I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to have been able to release a new music project too “Finding Faith” I wrote the new album with my great friend Tim and we had the opportunity to come back to Oz for a week to promote it and play a few songs on TV and some appearances along the way The reaction has been really sensational and truly humbling to be able to share another side of my life to many of the HN fans who have supported me over the years. The first main single Good Hands is currently #1 on the Christian radio charts in Oz and will be released in the US in August … can’t wait to see how this musical trip and faith journey continues for me.
Just this week, we touched down on the East Coast to visit you in Atlantic City and Morristown for a couple of shows before we make our way over to Australia. We’ve already started to plan our One Night Only Show (Sydney) where we will show case a few songs from the new album and it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. Thanks so much to everyone who bought tickets, it’s now officially SOLD OUT!
Personally, I’m really looking forward to bringing my little one back with me to Oz this August — a new album PLUS taking her to see her first Koala … sounds like a win win to me.
For our US fans – in addition to the new music we have some great announcements coming soon also… so stay tuned.
Thanks for everything you guys do to allow us to keep singing and making people smile… We never take what we get to do for granted and you guys.
But for now, here’s to a ‘Little More Love’ coming your way from HN this August!
All the best,

Australia’s HUMAN NATURE have earned their place as one of the world’s finest pop vocal groups of the modern era, and as award-winning Las Vegas resident headliners with their distinctive harmonies and stellar live shows. The fantastic foursome has announced that they will be taking their smash hit Las Vegas show “Jukebox” on the road in March 2018. The tour will support the release of their new studio CD, “JUKEBOX – The Ultimate Playlist” which is available November 3 on Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment and, their PBS special, “HUMAN NATURE: Jukebox – In Concert from the Venetian,” which debuts Thanksgiving weekend.
“We are so excited to bring our ‘Jukebox’ to cities across the USA with our national tour, CD and PBS special,” said Toby Allen of HUMAN NATURE. “We have so many fans that come to our show at The Venetian in Las Vegas ask us when we will be coming to a city near them, and now, through the television special and tour, we can now take our show on the road from New York to California.”
“Jukebox” has been praised by critics and fans for it’s broad musical offering and flawless production being declared “an incredibly addictive evening of entertainment.” The show effortlessly mixes pop classics from their back catalogue with Doo-wop, Motown, Soul standards and more – offering the ultimate playlist – live! HUMAN NATURE’S foursome, Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers, Andrew and Mike Tierney, are joined on stage by a dynamic band, The Jukebox All-Stars, and world-class dancers, as they celebrate a mix of musical genres that covers classic hits as well as chart topping hits of today.
“Jukebox” is not only a playlist of the groups influences, but some of the most-loved hit songs from the best vocal artists and groups of all time, including “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Stand By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Higher and Higher,” “Dance To The Music” and “Under The Boardwalk.” They show that this “Jukebox” plays everything from The Temptations to Timberlake, from The Beatles to Bruno Mars.
A collection of some of the most-loved hit songs from the best vocal artists and groups of all time, Human Nature’s upcoming CD release, “Jukebox – The Ultimate Playlist,” features such classics as “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Stand By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Be My Baby” and “Under The Boardwalk,” reinterpreted with the group’s stellar sound as well as two original songs. “Jukebox: The Ultimate Playlist,” (CD and digital configurations) is available for pre-order now.
The PBS special, “HUMAN NATURE: Jukebox – In Concert from the Venetian,” is inspired by and based on the group’s two Australian multi-platinum selling albums Jukebox and Gimme Some Lovin,’ which feature classic ‘50s and ‘60s pop standards. The albums were executive produced by the legendary Bob Rock (Michael Bublé, Metallica) and produced by David Pierce (Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams). Pierce joined HUMAN NATURE at The Venetian as a musical collaborator for the JUKEBOX experience. The songs were originally either penned or performed by the likes of The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Righteous Brothers, Fontella Bass and more. In addition, the group have also included two new ‘modern classic’ on the album, original tunes, ‘End of Days’ and ‘Forgive Me Now’.
Human Nature’s, career statistics are staggering. Since signing to Sony Music Australia over two decades ago, Human Nature have sold more than 2.5 million albums, earned 27 platinum awards, scored 17 Top 40 hits and have had five Top Ten tracks worldwide. Standout moments in Human Nature’s career to date include performing to a global audience at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, opening for Michael Jackson and Celine Dion at concerts around the world and appearing on television in the USA on shows as varied as The Talk, Today Show, Oprah, and Dancing With The Stars as well as their own PBS specials Human Nature Sings Motown and the forthcoming Human Nature “Jukebox: In Concert from The Venetian.”

Well 2016 is almost over – what a year hey?! For me personally it has been one of the greatest years of my life with the preparation and arrival of Heather and my little angel Violette – what a true blessing she has been.
Human Nature has had an enormous year too with the new show Jukebox launching in Las Vegas and then our first #1 in 10 years with “Gimme Some Lovin’ – Jukebox Vol. II” back home in Australia in July – all amazing stuff.
Christmas was a real highlight, and gave us a chance to change up the show to celebrate with a whole bunch of our fans here in Vegas for the holidays. We had a blast singing some of our all-time favorite songs again and dusting off some Christmas dance steps – you can’t beat the Rudolph antler step – thanks Shannon (our choreographer)! 😄
It does honestly seem crazy how many amazing iconic stars have left us through the year though and most recently, the loss of George Michael was personally a real sadness to me. I have always loved George as a singer and songwriter and have to say he has been one of major influences on me as a pop artist. You can hear a little bit of “Faith” in the song “Telling Everybody” Mike and I wrote with our good buddy Paul Begaud for our very first album. He was a true blend of Pop and Soul and always made everything he did sound like it was meant just for him. Our version of “Last Christmas” has really stayed with us all our career and recently we sang it as a tribute in the Human Jukebox section of our show to send our respect his way. His music will be part of my personal Jukebox forever.
I have to say my greatest moment of 2016 though happened on November 6 at 12:36pm, when my incredibly gorgeous wife Heather gave birth to our heaven-sent angel Violette Faith Tierney. I have always been happy being the self-proclaimed “cool and crazy” Uncle but becoming a Dad is truly the greatest gift God could give me in this life. She is so precious and life will never be the same – only better.
Baby V is coming on the road for the first time in Feb which brings me to something I can’t wait for 2017 to deliver, which is our tour! I can’t wait to perform together with the guys for you all across the country on what we are calling our Ultimate Jukebox Tour. We are pumped to be bringing our full band direct from Vegas to play for you all too – many of whom have never set foot in Oz before so it’s going to be a blast!
Expect some pop-tastic flashbacks, great singing, great moves and just a whole bunch of great music – plus we are welcoming back Dancing With The Stars superstars Masha and Aric as our dancers again to bring a little romantic flare to the Jukebox.
I think since doing our 60 Minutes interview earlier in the year with good mate Karl Stefanovic, even more Aussies have been coming to hear us sing in the Sands Showroom at The Venetian – nothing beats seeing our fellow countrymen look proud to watch us bring that stage to life – it’s the best compliment we could ever get. My favourite fan gift for the year could be the personalised jar of Vegemite – gotta love the taste of home.
I also got to spend a day in NYC over Christmas this year after we returned to The Borgata in Atlantic City to give them their first taste of Jukebox on the East Coast. NYC has always been my most-loved city in the world and with the snow flurries and Christmas Tree in The Rockefeller Center this year, it lived up to all its glory. I heart NY.
One of the funniest YouTube clips I’ve seen recently was Conan O’Brien interviewing Kevin Hart in the gym — check it out…very funny stuff! I also loved Bruno Mars in James Cordon’s Carpool Karaoke (what a fantastic idea that is for interviews) – it has really become a defining idea for him as a host and media personality.
Well, signing off for now, but can’t wait for another amazing year to roll around and I pray you all have a safe and amazing 2017. See you for The Ultimate Jukebox shows in February in Australia!

One of the things the members of Human Nature are most proud of is getting to play a small role in keeping the spirit and legacy of Motown music alive. With every show—be it in Vegas, back home in Australia, or the small towns on the group’s recent U.S. tour—Andrew, Michael, Phil, and Toby get to connect with live audiences and share their passion for these songs that changed the world. Sometimes that means performing for fans who have loved Motown for decades. Other times, it means introducing this music to people who have never really experienced or absorbed it before, passing on “the spark” to a new generation. In this way, Human Nature and their band serve as ambassadors of sorts to the Motown Sound and one of the traveling extensions of the label’s historic Detroit roots.

For as often as we describe Human Nature as a quartet, anyone who has ever seen the group’s Motown show will know that it takes far more than four people to pull off a nightly spectacular of this magnitude. There’s the stagehands, sound and lighting technicians, management, security, the staff at the Venetian, and perhaps most importantly of all, there’s the Funk Foundation—or as some folks call them, “the best band in Vegas.”

Yes, it’s fair to say that Human Nature’s longtime seven-piece back-up band doesn’t get quite the same level of attention as the four front-and-center crooners themselves. But for the Funk Foundation, that’s exactly how they prefer it. After all, these remarkably talented musicians are proudly following in the footsteps of the original purveyors of “The Motown Sound”— the collective of Detroit studio musicians who later came to be known as The Funk Brothers.

It was 1999, the height of boy band hysteria—and Y2K paranoia. Seemingly the last thing that would be on anyone’s mind was a TV sitcom from more than two decades in the past. But as the fates would have it, the 25th anniversary celebration of the classic American show Happy Days had found its way to the shores of Australia, and our friends in Human Nature were about to get wrapped up in one of the more unique and memorable projects of their career.
“Yes, we once performed in an arena musical version of Happy Days,” Phil Burton concedes. “That was probably funny enough in itself. But what was even funnier was what happened at the end-of-tour party.”
Before we get to that classic moment in Human Nature history, though, let’s first revisit how they got there.

On August 6th, Human Nature’s mini summer tour of the U.S. Eastern seaboard kicked off with a set at the Palace Theatre in Waterbury, Connecticut. By the time the tour concludes on August 17 in Boston, the boys will have played nine shows in five cities. It certainly won’t surpass the most miles they’ve ever racked up on the road, but it does represent one of the group’s first extended opportunities to tour the States in a more traditional sense. And Phil Burton hopes it’s just the beginning.
“Yeah, we still haven’t done what you’d consider a full ‘tour’ in the US,” he says. “We have hit the road a couple of times before this, but never for a long period of time. I can’t wait to do it, though! Just the idea of getting down and dirty, sleeping in a bus and seeing a whole bunch of different places in the US would be kind of ‘living the dream’ for any performer. It’s something you don’t get to do in Australia, as everything is so spread out. You need to fly everywhere. Also because Australia has such a small and concentrated population, you can tour almost the whole country in a matter of a few weeks.”
