The Original Wiggles Are Reuniting For A Bushfire Relief Concert!

The Original Wiggles Are Reuniting For A Bushfire Relief Concert!

 

Get ready to do the Hot Potato cause the original Wiggles are getting the band together for one very special event and one off show.

You heard correctly,  Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Greg Page and Jeff Fatt – the original Blue, Red, Yellow, and Purple Wiggles respectively – announced on Monday that they’re super excited to be performing together for the first time in 14 years!

The group decided to come together for one very good cause- to raise money for the Australian Bushfire crisis that has claimed the lives of 21 people and destroyed over 2,500 homes and wiped out half a billion animals so far.

 

Anthony, Murray, Greg and Jeff will appear together at the Castle Hill RSL on January 18 – but take note, this is an over-18s only event.

“People can drink whatever they like and sing along to Joannie Works With Five Hammers!” Blue Wiggle Anthony told said.

Tickets are just $35 and all funds raised will be donated to Australian Red Cross and WIRES, two charities that are supporting people and animals affected by the catastrophic fires raging along the country’s east coast.

Tickets go on sale on the official Wiggle site at 10 am on January 7, so you’d better hurry cause these are sure to see out like hot potatoes.

The group announced the reunion show on Twitter on Monday. “OG Wiggles reunion show to raise some much-needed funds for bushfire relief,” reads the tweet. “ALL proceeds from the show will be going to the Australian Red Cross and WIRES. Over 18s show. Tickets go on sale tomorrow Jan 7th at 10:00am. Head to http://thewiggles.com/tours for more info,” it states.

The original Wiggles were founded in 1991 after Jeff and Anthony – then members of ‘80s pop band The Cockroaches – got together with fellow teaching students Greg and Murray to record a children’s music album.

Yellow Wiggle Greg retired from the group in 2006 due to illness, with understudy Sam Moran taking his place. Greg returned in 2012 but stepped back along with Murray and Jeff at the end of that same year.

The current members of The Wiggles are Emma Watkins (the band’s first female member who replaced Greg), Lachlan Gillespie (who replaced Jeff), Simon Pryce (who replaced Murray) and original Blue Wiggle Anthony Field.

So who’s excited?!! Get those Wiggles fingers ready!
