(NEW YORK, NY) – After years of captivating children from around the globe, the number one children’s entertainment group, The Wiggles, are bringing their “catchy brand of preschool pop” (Chicago Tribune) back to North American audiences with the Ready, Steady, Wiggle! Tour.
This Fall, the “forever young” (Detroit Free Press) quartet will delight families across the country in support of their new CD and DVD, Apples and Bananas, available August 26mm as well as a new season of their hit television show airing on Sprout in the US and Treehouse in Canada.
Founding member Anthony Field (Blue Wiggle) along with Emma Watkins (Yellow Wiggle), Simon Pryce (Red Wiggle)m and Lachlan Gillespie (Purple Wiggle) will be joined on stage by the lovable Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog, and Henry the Octopus for a wiggly good time.
“This will be the biggest and brightest wiggly show this year,” said Emma.
“We’ll play our wiggly favourites from Hot Potato and Rock-a-Bye your Bear to the new hits, Do the Propeller and Emma (with the bow in her hair),” added Anthony.
Simon chimed in, “There will be lots of surprises on stage. Stay tuned to hear more.”
“We also can’t wait to see the mini Emma army at every show; pint-sized girls dressed in yellow with bows in their hair,” mentioned Lachy.
The Ready Steady Wiggle! Tour will also include new music from Apples and Bananas. This charming collection includes classic nursery rhymes such as This Old Man, The Wheels on the Bus, and This Little Piggy Went To Market, featuring Lee Hawkins, recording artist and nationally renowned journalist, who lends his voice to this time-honoured ditty.
