HUMAN NATURE SET FOR A NIGHT OF MOTOWN MAGIC AS LIVING LEGENDS COME TOGETHER TO TAKE IN SPECIAL PERFORMANCE

Music icons Mary Wilson, Otis Williams and Duke Fakir will attend the May 30 show

  

Human Nature is gearing up for a historic night of Motown magic as they prepare to perform for legendary artists Mary Wilson (The Supremes), Otis Williams (The Temptations) and Duke Fakir (The Four Tops).

Formed in 1989 when brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney teamed up with schoolmates Toby Allen and Phil Burton to represent their local high school in a combined regional schools concert, Human Nature then called themselves The Four Trax, a nod to Duke Fakir’s The Four Tops.

After changing their name to Human Nature, the soulful singers went on to release 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 in Las Vegas.

The group 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.

Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show performs nightly Thursday – Monday (dark Tuesday, Wednesday) at 7p.m. Ticket prices are set at Reserved $59.95, Preferred $79.95 and VIP $99.95 (plus tax and handling fee – VIP ticket price also includes a commemorative CD).
