Human Nature gets ready for a return to the Geelong stage
Popular Aussie pop vocal group Human Nature has announced it will bring its new show to Geelong as part of a bespoke concert tour of the east coast of Australia and South Australia.
Tickets for the June 18 performance at Costa Hall are expected to sell quickly as the band visits regional towns for the first time in more than 15 years.
The People Get Ready tour promises an intimate night of entertainment which celebrates 30 years of the band’s greatest hits and popular covers of Motown classics.
Audience members can sing and dance along to songs such as Telling Everybody, Wishes, When you Say You Love Me and Will You Love Me Tomorrow.
The ARIA Hall of Fame inductees are one of Australia’s greatest musical success stories, with the foursome of Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers, Andrew and Mike Tierney, having sold more than 2.5 million albums and had five top 10 hits worldwide.
“We are so excited to have the opportunity to take our new show on the road, we’ve never performed like this, stripped back, along with some old school Human Nature thrown in,” Allen said.
“It will be so great to get back on stage in front of audiences and to towns we haven’t toured to in over 15 years.”
The band members will also share some of their favourite stories from the road and the recording studio as they delve into 30 years of history and friendship.
Human Nature was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) and the band dominated the Las Vegas strip for over a decade with their critically acclaimed residency at the prestigious The Venetian Resort, performing more than 2000 shows.
Last year they released a new original single titled Nobody Just Like You which is from their upcoming Good Good Life EP which is due for release this year.
Human Nature – People Get Ready is on at Costa Hall at 8pm on June 18.
