“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!

“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.

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’.
