SMOKEY ROBINSON PRESENTS HUMAN NATURE: THE MOTOWN SHOW Plays 1,000th Performance Tonight

Smokey Robinson and the members of Human Nature will celebrate the 1,000th performance of their hit Las Vegas show "Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show" in Las Vegas on stage at The Sands Showroom at The Venetian Las Vegas tonight, April 10 at 7 p.m. Mentor, good friend, and show presenter Smokey Robinson will make a special appearance and perform with Human Nature marking their show achievement in true style.

Calling Las Vegas home since 2009, Human Nature came to the performing mecca as the #1 vocal group in Australia and quickly became one of the Las Vegas Strip's favorite shows. Performing to sold-out audiences regularly, the multi-platinum selling band has brought the classic Motown sound full circle to critical acclaim.

"We are extremely proud of this achievement," said Human Nature's Andrew Tierney. "We have been performing together as a group for over 24 years, and it's amazing that 1,000 of our shows in the U.S. have been in Las Vegas. It's an honor to perform in front of people who have travelled from every corner of the world to Las Vegas and into our theater. Each and every show is special to the group and we are truly grateful to the audiences, fans, our band and partners."

In honor of their 1,000 shows, Andrew, Mike, Phil and Toby were asked to give a rundown of the numbers that have contributed to the success of Human Nature: The Motown Show:
