The Wiggles are polishing up their big red car and hitting the road for a 10-date national tour.
The popular children’s entertainers are starting their Big Show entertainment centre and arena show in November in Tasmania.
The new live performances from the gang will feature ballet dancers, Irish dancers, acrobats and more – the biggest live show yet for the new line-up.
Anthony Field, the Blue Wiggle, is the only remaining member from the original line-up and now shares the stage with Emma (Yellow Wiggle) Lachy (Purple Wiggle) and Simon (Red Wiggle).
“It’s been a really busy year already with over 120 sold out shows on our regional tour, starting on our new movie, and plans for the US and New Zealand,” said Emma.
Field promised the band will be playing old favourites such as Hot Potato and Rock-a-Bye Your Bear but will also add new songs like Do the Propeller! and Emma (with the bow in her hair).
“And we all know we’ll see the mini Emma army at every show. Every time we look out into the audience, it’s a sea of yellow and bows,” said Lachy.
The show will feature other Wiggles favourites including Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus.
The Wiggles are also working on a new feature film, The Wiggles: Pandamonium! which is a collaboration between the performers and comedian and author Ben Elton.
Tickets for The Wiggles’ Big Show tour go on sale today.
