Blonde4ever reviews Human Nature – Jukebox at the Venetian
I went to see Human Nature for the third time on my last trip, and I would have no problem going again; it is that entertaining. It is one of those shows that you never get tired of. Their Motown show was great, but their new show “Jukebox” is equally wonderful.
Human Nature is an Australian harmony pop group formed in 1989. The group consists of Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers, Andrew and Mike Tierney. They have opened for everyone from Michael Jackson to Celine Dion. In 2009 they began a residency at Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. I preferred it when the “boys” were at Imperial Palace because I found that theater to be more intimate. I always find that being close to the performers increases my enjoyment of a show however their new home, the Sands Theater at Venetian, doesn’t have a bad seat either.
Many people mention not knowing what to expect when they purchase their tickets, but that they were “blown away” when they saw the show. Their acapella harmonies are amazing.
The group performs a wide range of genres; everything from old school to contemporary. I am glad they kept many of their Motown numbers in the show like “Reach Out” and “Dancing in the Street.” Another segment I really loved was their tribute to “boy bands”; Back Street Boys, New Kids on the Block and N Sync. If that was your era, you may find yourself screaming, just a bit.
When you can tear your eyes away from the four extremely talented singers, there is an amazing couple dancing on stage that provides added interest to the show. Jukebox is very high energy. I particularly love when the fellows do the synchronized style of dancing that the groups used to do long ago.
I have never seen performers do a better job of getting the audience involved. Although you will likely enter the theater with the intention of sitting with your butt planted firmly in your chair all night, you may find yourself on your feet singing and dancing in the aisles. After the show, they come out to the lobby to meet their fans and promote their CDs.
You can’t go wrong if you choose this show; it is non-stop fun!
