The Christmas Show will see the ARIA Hall of Fame foursome performing outdoors and under the stars as they kickstart the festive season for 2023. Music fans will be bursting with Christmas cheer as they sing along to all the Holiday classics from Human Nature’s timeless Christmas album - including Let It Snow, White Christmas, O Holy Night, Last Christmas and Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer - intertwined with some of the groups most adored and requested songs from their stellar chart-topping career.

“All we wanted for Christmas was to come home and play a show for our fans in Sydney — so this is beyond a thrill. To be able to perform an outdoor Holiday show on the iconic Sydney Opera House Forecourt is just incredible. We can’t wait to share the fun with you all. Singing Christmas classics, our own hits and of course some Motown favourites —- it will be the best way to bring in the festive season together,” said Andrew Tierney.
