Boys back to launch Seniors Fest

Human Nature

A TRUE home-grown international success story and now one of the world’s greatest pop groups, Human Nature, will be headlining the star-studded Premier’s Gala Concert – one of the highlight events of this month’s NSW Seniors Festival.

Friends from an early age, Bankstown’s Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney arrived into the lives of the Australian public in 1996.
Since then they’ve become known around the globe for their distinctive harmonies and stellar live shows and recently celebrated 10 years of performing in the Las Vegas entertainment mecca.
Recently recovered from Covid and now all fully vaccinated and clear, they are looking forward to coming home.
“We always love coming back to perform in Australia – there’s nothing like a hometown crowd,” Andrew said.

“Living in Vegas, we miss the beaches for sure and good old fish and chips.
“Spending time with family whenever we’re back is the most special though … which always brings us back to our roots in Bankstown.
“We feel very grateful to have a repertoire of songs that people love to hear. It’s the way the crowd reacts that helps us keep it fresh.”
And what advice can they give to up and coming musicians?
“Make sure you’re doing it because you love it – not to one day be rich and famous – cause those things may not happen. Make music for the love of it first.”
A new original song, ‘Nobody Just Like You’, will feature in their upcoming Australian tour, ‘Good Good Life – ARIA Hall of Fame Tour’, along with all their pop classics, and kicks off in August 2021.
At the end of this month, Human Nature’s acoustic-based ‘People Get Ready: The AAA Regional Tour’, hits the road and will be their first regional tour in more than 15 years.

Tickets to the seniors concerts on April 21 and April 22 (11am and 2.45pm) at Aware Super Theatre, ICC Sydney in Darling Harbour, are free and available from April 7 via Ticketek.
