Human Nature Get It Goin' On In Europe ...and at the logies
Hit pop group Human Nature are rushing back from overseas to appear at this year's TV Week Logie Awards on Sunday, May 18.
The Sydney band - currently in the top 10 with their fourth single 'Don't Say Goodbye' - have just finished a 10-date tour of the UK with Eternal, and will be back in Australia for only one week. 'It's going to be a big 12 months for us, so we're rapt we're able to fit in the Logies." band member Andrew Tierney says.
After the Logies, Human Nature will return to Europe to support Celine Dion and release their debut album 'Telling Everybody', which has already sold more than 100,000 copies in Australia and contained four top 40 hits - 'Got It Goin' On' [Number 19], 'Tellin' Everybody' [Number 30], 'Wishes' [Number 6] and 'Don't Say Goodbye' which has just gone gold, for sales of 35,000 copies.
The band - Tierney brothers Andrew, 22, and Michael, 20, Toby Allen, 23, and phil Burton, 22 - have already appeared on British TV nine times.
A Sony spokesman says the band is set for major international success.
"For an unkown band, they got a phenomenal reaction on the Eternal tour" he says. "At Wembly Arena, they had 12,000 screaming fans."
Human Nature will do one of the Logies' three production numbers, which are being devised by Logies co-producer David Atkins.
Logies executive producer Peter Wynne said geting Human Nature was a coup.
"Their number will be the highlight of the show," Peter says. "They are a major local act and they're doing big things overseas, so they'll be even hotter when they get back. They will also add a bit of spunk value to the show".
