Australia's HUMAN NATURE to Perform on DANCING WITH THE STARS, 4/23

Human Nature is the latest artist scheduled to perform on ABC's hit television show 'Dancing With The Stars.' On Monday, April 23, the chart-topping group will bring their distinctive vocal talents to this week's Motown-themed episode along with live performances from Motown legends, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and Martha Reeves, honoring some of Motown's greatest music. Human Nature will perform some of Motown's most popular hits throughout the evening – Monday, April 23, 2012 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Exploring their passion for singing great harmony and inspired by the extraordinary music of Motown, brothers Andrew and Mike Tierney teamed up with high-school mates, Phil Burton and Toby Allen. They would go on to form the international pop vocal group sensation Human Nature: releasing nine albums, five of which went to No. 1 in their native continent, selling millions of records worldwide and garnering 23 platinum awards, 70 Top 40 hits and five Top 10 hits.

Human Nature now plans to conquer America and their appearance on an upcoming episode of 'Dancing With The Stars' is just the beginning as they also embrace their first U.S. national tour. "Human Nature: The Motown Show" kicked off in Detroit and continues April 24 through May 6 (see itinerary below). "Definitely a crowd pleaser," said the Detroit Examiner in a recent 5 Star review. It was "hard to leave without a smile on your face and a song in your heart." The group delivers a spectacular evening of entertainment, based on their successful Las Vegas show, that pays tribute to the Motown sound as audiences young and old dance in the aisles and cheer for more.

Released last month, Human Nature's first U.S. release, The Motown Record includes several tracks produced by Harvey Mason Jr. (Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Glee) and their DVD, Human Nature Sings Motown, was produced by longtime Grammy® Awards show producer Ken Ehrlich. The CD features 11 tracks offering Human Nature's own authentic take on Motown hits and classics including the bonus track "Get Ready," a song they recorded with the legendary Smokey Robinson. The DVD also features a full concert by the group, a special appearance by Smokey Robinson, plus 40 minutes of bonus content.

Smokey Robinson was so impressed with their talent and love for singing Motown, he worked together with Human Nature and now presents their new, live stage show in Las Vegas at Caesars Entertainment Group's Imperial Palace, where they have played five and six nights a week to sold-out crowds. Human Nature and their full band are on their first U.S. tour through the end of the year, in addition to their Las Vegas schedule.
