Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and maybe even learn some new dance moves at Human Nature Jukebox. Mixing pop classics with Doo-Wop, Motown, soul standards and more, Human Nature, Australia’s top selling pop vocal group and Las Vegas headliners, is bringing audiences a show experience unlike any other on the Strip. Effortlessly blending retro cool with contemporary sounds, Jukebox takes audiences on an unforgettable journey through various genres.Starting with the classics of the Doo-Wop era, Human Nature pays tribute to the legends of Motown and soul and carries through to today’s breakout sensations. With song selections ranging from "Under the Boardwalk" to "Uptown Funk," the four men of Human Nature will have everyone dancing in their seats and tapping their toes along to the beat.Human Nature's smooth vocals and flawless harmonies have skyrocketed their popularity and success on the Las Vegas Strip for nearly a decade. Together the four entertainers; Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney are undeniably one of the world’s greatest pop-vocal groups, having entertained millions worldwide and releasing 23 best-selling albums in their 25-year career. Their latest multi-platinum album, "Jukebox" is the influence for the brand new show at the Venetian Las Vegas. Human Nature were voted "Best Singers" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and have appeared on Oprah, "Dancing with the Stars," "The Chew" and headlined their own PBS Special "Human Nature Sings Motown."Although audiences in Vegas may not be that familiar with Human Nature, they are one of the most popular acts from Australia. The group formed in 1989 as a Doo-Wop band in Sydney. In 1994 they signed with Sony Music and released their debut album, "Telling Everybody" in 1995. The album was an instant hit, selling four times platinum and became the most successful debut album ever released in Australia. Human Nature released their fourth consecutive No. 1 album, "A Symphony of Hits," in 2008.As a result of their outstanding showmanship, Human Nature has performed as the opening act for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. In 2000, they had the honor of performing the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics. During their Vegas show, the members of Human Nature get personal with their audiences and between songs greet audience members and tell stories. They explain since they were young they always aspired to be as great like The Temptations and The Miracles. Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience with others.Audiences watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several moments when Human Nature performs without the band; these songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and the ability to perform in perfect harmony. Human Nature keeps everyone on their feet and dancing to tunes while they create an entertainment experience with feel-good messages that are found in  timeless songs.Don't miss your chance to catch Human Nature perform at the Venetian.

One of the best shows in Vegas
PostedJune 26, 2016
This is one of the best shows we have seen in Vegas. This was our 13th trip to Vegas and we have seen a lot of shows and this was one of the best and at a great price when you compare it to other shows. They put on a fantastic show and it is non stop for 90 minutes. Great songs and it was a fun show. The meet and greet after the show was also nice to have.

It's all hits and no misses as Steve Wynn cherry picks the greatest Broadway hits to create "ShowStoppers," a performance highlighting some of America's favorite show numbers.Broadway's rock star composers and lyricists are all represented here with music from Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Marvin Hamlisch and more as numbers from more than 10 musicals are presented in their full glory.The hits being performed feel like who's who of Tony Award winners seeing that the show's catalogue of songs has earned 43 Tony Awards and countless number of various other recognitions."ShowStoppers" features iconic songs like "All That Jazz" from "Chicago," "Cabaret" from "Cabaret," "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from "Gypsy" and many more that you've probably belted out in the shower.But perhaps more elaborate than your shower, Wynn is sparing no expense to create a show that expresses the very best of live Broadway entertainment with a remarkable 66-member cast of 35 singers and dancers all backed by an on-stage, 31-piece orchestra, as well as exceptional costume and set designs that evoke an unparalleled “Razzle Dazzle” element."ShowStoppers" was inspired by Wynn's birthday party for his wife, Andrea. At that celebration, Broadway stars Rachel York and Hugh Jackman performed hit songs backed by dancers and an orchestra. That experience ignited a passion in Wynn to bring a similar show to his Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas."These show stopping numbers, they seem to have a power of their own," said Steve Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts. "The reason they're showstoppers is that they touch some element of human nature and human emotion that seems to resonate generation after generation."An undoubtedly high-quality production, not only does “ShowStoppers” feature a myriad of showstopping tunes, but the costumes and talent that aid in bringing each scene to life are just as dazzling. Clearly designed to wow the audience, from the intricate attention to detail to the grand display of elaborate sets, it is not just the show’s soundtrack that receives the spotlight, but it is the production as a whole that makes this entertainment experience so incredible.To deliver an epic night of showstoppers in "ShowStoppers," Wynn has recruited an award-winning creative team including director Phil McKinley, recently with Broadway's "Spiderman: Turn off the Dark;" choreographer and three-time Emmy Award-winner Marguerite Derricks; costume designer Suzy Benzinger, the head costume designer for the Oscar award-winning film "Blue Jasmine;" and Emmy Award-winning musical director David Loeb.An undoubtedly high-quality production, not only does “ShowStoppers” feature a myriad of showstopping tunes, but the costumes and talent that aid in bringing each scene to life are just as dazzling. Clearly designed to wow the audience, from the intricate attention to detail to the grand display of elaborate sets, it is not just the show’s soundtrack that receives the spotlight, but it is the production as a whole that makes this entertainment experience so incredible.And implementing the behind-the-scenes talent are the singers, dancers and musicians who captivate the audience with their entrancing execution of some of Broadway’s most notable tunes.  All selected from esteemed backgrounds in their field, leading the male singers include Randal Keith, David Burnham and Andrew Ragone. Keith is a veteran Las Vegas performer having played three lead roles in "Phantom -- The Las Vegas Spectacular" and also appeared in "Monty Python's Spamalot" at the Encore Theater. Ragone is a fellow "Phantom" performer, having played Raoul in the Vegas show. And Burnham has earned accolades as Fabrizio in the national tour of "The Light in the Piazza." In addition to having played the role of Fiyero in "Wicked" on Broadway.Leading the female performers, Kerry O'Malley, Lauren Molina and Lindsay Roginski have all also had an impressive run in the entertainment world prior to “ShowStoppers.” O'Malley has performed in film ("Annabelle," "Earth to Echo," "Terminator: Genesis") and on TV ("Boardwalk Empire" and "Irving Berlin's White Christmas"), while Nolina starred as Johanna in "Sweeney Todd" on Broadway and fellow Broadwayite Roginski starred as Roxie Hart in "Chicago" and as Lola in "Damn Yankees."A single Broadway showstopper is so bold that it is rare if there is more than one of these show-stopping numbers is in one performance -- just imagine the incredible energy of watching (and dancing along to!) nearly 20 in a row.

Seeing a stand-up comedian can be great. Add some sexy burlesque dancing to it, and now you have a show. Sin City Comedy & Burlesque at Planet Hollywood offers just that. The show features a rotating lineup of comedians and burlesque dancing that dates back to the 1840s when the two went hand and hand. Many of the comedians in this show are recognizable from appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, HBO, "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late, Late Show" and more.

You don't need to pack any bags for this excursion, but you may want to wear some comfortable shoes for toe-tapping."Let us take you down to an old dirt road," says a pre-recorded announcement before impersonators portraying some of the biggest names in country music along with up-and-coming acts take the stage in Country Superstars. This show gives fans plenty to write home about. Country Superstars has a concert-style format, showcasing a main performer singing with a live five-piece band. The show features tribute artists singing your favorite songs and emulating an uncanny likeness to the real performers.Country Superstars has a rotating lineup of tribute artists. On the night the show was attended the headlining tribute acts were Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks. The performers do an incredible job of re-creating the look, sound and feel of the artists they portray. Each one performed a selection of greatest hit songs with all live music. There are no backing tracks or lip synching in this revue.The show opens with McEntire's performance of "Turn on the Radio." She also acts as the show's spunky and sassy host. Things get a little "Strange" before McEntire belts out you can "Consider Me Gone."Wearing his signature black cowboy hat, the tribute artist portraying Tim McGraw does fans justice with his rendition of songs including "Real Good Man," "Something Like That (A Heart Don't Forget)" and "Down on the Farm." The performer is a real "tall glass of water," as McEntire puts it. He gives fans, especially women in the audience, plenty to cheer about while he's on stage.Next, Brooks takes audiences by storm with his performance of "The Thunder Rolls," "Friends in Low Places" and "Rodeo." Part tribute show, part concert, Country Superstars celebrates music from the past, present and future. Get ready to get down with the best in country music at this revue.Note: This show features a rotating cast of country superstars, not a guaranteed lineup.

The show was worth the price.
PostedJune 30, 2014
The 4 artist we saw did a great job and my wife really liked The artist who did Tim McGraw. The venue could use some upgrades as it is looking a little tired. The drink holders need to be replaced as most have no bottom and a beer bottle goes right the bottom.

 Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys
The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito, who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is an experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

Ticket claiming?

We purchased tickets for this show via the vegas.com website, and it told us that all we need is the ID of the ticket holder at the box office to claim our tickets, but other shows are telling us we need a copy of the receipt to claim our tickets. Which is it, for this particular show?
I had my ID and the ticket confirmation. I recommend always having both. I have ordered tickets before and this works best.
