Tickets go on-sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 24 and are $79 and $59 plus applicable fees and taxes. Tickets may be purchased by calling 877-374-7469or online at www.parislasvegas.com.
“We have enjoyed bringing our high-energy selection of memorable Motown songs to our audience at Imperial Palace every night,” said Andrew Tierney, one of the group’s members. “This PBS special will give us the opportunity to share our show with an even broader audience. We expect fans watching at home to get on their feet and dance and sing along, just like the crowds in our theater night after night.”
Named “Best Singers” by editors of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the vocal quartet’s contract was extended for two years through May of 2012 after only a year at Imperial Palace. To further sing their praises, the 653-seat showroom in which the group performs was renamed the Human Nature Theater.
The four members of Human Nature – Toby Allen, Phil Burton, Andrew Tierney and Michael Tierney – perform many of Motown’s greatest hits with distinctive and soulful harmonies. Known for their outstanding concert and stage performances, the group has opened for superstars Celine Dion and Michael Jackson and has made several international television appearances, including The Oprah Winfrey Show. Human Nature has racked up an impressive 70 Top 40 Hits and five Top 10 Hits on the Australian pop charts. The band’s previous albums have all gone multi-platinum in Australia and have been successful on international charts. Most recently, Human Nature released their tenth studio album, Vegas: Songs from Sin City, featuring 12 Vegas-themed tracks, including a duet with Barry Manilow. The group will be performing at Caesars Atlantic City for three weeks this summer.
