In conjunction with their 30th anniversary, Aussie pop royalty Human Nature will be inducted into this year’s ARIA Hall Of Fame.
Mike, Andrew, Phil and Toby first formed as a group 30 years ago this month (as the 4-Trax) and since releasing their debut single as Human Nature (‘Got It Goin’ On’) 23 years ago, they’ve gone on to become a global sensation.
Not only have they captured the love and adoration of Vegas punters over recent years, they’ve sold more than two and a half million albums here in Australia, have hit the top 20 15 times and, later this month, will notch up their 4000th performance together.
“We are so incredibly humbled by this honour to be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame,” the band said in a statement. “All we have ever wanted to do for a career is to entertain people, and to have had the fans continually support us over the years both in our home of Australia and overseas, is really something we never dreamed of.
“To be inducted on the anniversary of our first ever performance as a group and in our 30th year since forming makes us so grateful.
“We are so looking forward to coming back home and celebrating this honour with our family, friends and fans on November 27th at the 2019 ARIA Awards.”
ARIA Chief Executive Dan Rosen added, “The 30 year career of Human Nature is a truly unique Australian success story. From teenage friends to multi platinum stars to keepers of the Motown flame, they have won over audiences all around the world. I am thrilled to have them in the ARIA Hall Of Fame and congratulate them for their incredible career.”
To celebrate the milestone, Human Nature will release a new best-of collection entitled ‘Still Telling Everybody – 30 Years Of Hits’ on November 22.
It will feature a re-working of their previous hit single ‘Don’t Say Goodbye’ (listen below).
Human Nature will be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame at the 2019 ARIA Awards, to be held on Wednesday November 27 at The Star Event Centre in Sydney.
