I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.
With Greg, Murray and Jeff now retired, Blue Wiggle Anthony has been replaced by new Yellow, Red and Purple Wiggles, and the new-look group is set to embark on its first tour of Australia, appropriately titled 'Taking Off'. The Queensland stretch will take place in April. nestled between the two New South Wales stages of the tour.
As Anthony says, 'It's such a great way to start the year. There's so much energy with these young guys. We introduced Simon, Emma and Lachy on the Celebration tour around the world and audiences loved them and I'm so excited to be heading out on the road across Australia so that all our Wiggly fans can meet the new team'.
The new Wiggles will be joined on the tour by Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus, with everyone singing and dancing along to favourites like Hot Potato and Rock-a-Bye Your Bear. The Wiggles will also perform new material from their new Taking Off CD and DVD, which audiences will be among the first to hear.
