2020 Valentine’s Concert
Human Nature came, saw and delivered… and then some.
Direct from Las Vegas to Joondalup, the Australian music icons and ARIA Hall of Famers – Andrew Tierney, Mike Tierney, Phil Burton and Toby Allen – performed their Motown and More show to a sold-out audience at the City of Joondalup’s 2020 Valentine’s Concert at Joondalup Resort.
Backed by their all-star band, the quartet proved they are still at the top of their game more than 30 years into their career with a world-class performance that led to thousands of audience members getting up on their feet to dance the night away.
Set highlights included a mix of fan favorites and Motown classics.Standouts included Every Time You Cry, Shout, Telling Everybody, Wishes, Stand by Me, Ain’t No Mountain, Dancing in the Street, All You Need is Love, My Girl (with a special guest), Stop in the Name of Love and Run Around Sue.
Speaking after the show, Toby said it had been a hugely successful evening for Human Nature, the band and audience alike and a perfect way to celebrate the recent launch of their new music. “I think we had about 8,000 people here and it really felt that everyone was into it and having fun,” he said.
“It’s such a beautiful venue. I actually did a time-lapse video this afternoon of all the crowd coming in – and it looks amazing.”
He said Joondalup Resort was a far different venue to the more intimate shows they had been accustomed to playing in Las Vegas and they had to adapt their show to ensure the enormous crowd – even those up the back of the fairway – felt part of the experience.
More than 30 years into their career, Toby said the group was as excited as ever to be performing and recording and the good news is there is no sign of them slowing down soon.“We are excited, we’ve come back with new music this year, for “ Nobody Just Like You” to be so well accepted and getting played heaps on radio is exciting.
Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said Human Nature had delivered a concert for the ages.
“To have these icons of Australian music icons perform in our own backyard – exclusively for our community – was an amazing coup for our City. Where else but Joondalup could you see an act of this nature for such a small cost? We truly are cementing our reputation as an event and destination City”.
The City acknowledges the support of Valentine’s Concert sponsors, Edith Cowan University, Joondalup Health Campus, and the Joondalup Times.
