The Wiggles, the fast-dancing, fun-loving Fab Four from Down Under, are coming to Harbour Station in Saint John, NB on October 14th with their brand new show “Celebration”, which will reunite Original Yellow Wiggle Greg Page with Anthony, Jeff, and Murray for their final tour together as the original Wiggles.
After 21 years of entertaining and educating children around the globe, Red Wiggle Murray Cook, Yellow Wiggle Greg Page and Purple Wiggle Jeff Fatt have decided to hang up their trademark coloured jerseys to a new generation of Wiggles starting in 2013.
The Wiggles have entertained children throughout the world for over two decades and are bringing all the excitement and joy of their movies and television shows right before your eyes, live on stage! Come celebrate with Anthony, Greg, Murray, and Jeff! Harbour Station in Saint John will be their only New Brunswick appearance.
After 2012, Jeff, Murray and Greg will hand over the purple, red and yellow skivvies to a new generation of performers to instead take on backstage creative roles. Anthony will continue on stage as the Blue Wiggle alongside Emma Watkins, Lachlan Gillespie, and Simon Pryce, who have been handpicked by the group to become the Yellow, Purple, and Red Wiggles.
Emma, Lachy and Simon will join the original members of The Wiggles on the road for their Farewell tour. After that they will pull on the yellow, purple, and red skivvies and join Anthony on stage so that The Wiggles can continue to entertain and delight a new generation of children.
“We want to thank all our Wiggly fans– it’s been a great ride in our big red car. We are really looking forward to saying farewell and having one last dance with everyone during the tour,” Jeff said.
The Wiggles are strong advocates for a healthy lifestyle and are excited to bring their positive messages for all ages, to 17 cities across Canada and the North East United States this October. Stops include: Toronto, Hamilton, Washington DC, New York, Boston, Halifax, Saint John, Ottawa, London, Oshawa, Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver.
