Celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, the world's most successful children's entertainment group, The Wiggles, continue their fun filled journey with an invitation for you to come on down to Wiggle Town!
So just what is Wiggle Town!? If you like to sing and dance, then you're already a citizen of Wiggle Town. It's the only place on earth with both a dancing Police Force and Mayor, and where you can not only eat a pretzel, but you can groove along with 'Do the Pretzel!"
On the album Wiggle Town! you'll go Irish dancing, catch up with some of our Aussie mates as you sing 'D-I-N-G-O", flap your feathers as Captain Feathersword does 'Captain's Barnyard Dance" and join our graduate of the Royal Academy of Dinosaur Dancing, Dorothy the Dinosaur, as she performs her special ballet 'Pas De Deux".
Special guests on the album include Christine Anu from the Torres Strait Islands, appearing with The Wiggles for 'Taba Naba (Style)!" Also, the legendary Joy McKean OAM, one of Australia's most loved country music singer-songwriters and the wife of the late Slim Dusty, as she joins with The Wiggles on her song 'Gymkhana Yodel".
Meanwhile the lyrics for the fantastic 'Spike Milligan-esque" song The Wonder of Wiggle Town! was written by none other than Ben Elton.
Blue Wiggle and Wiggles Creator Anthony Field explains: 'Ben Elton's children grew up in Western Australia watching The Wiggles and over the years he has become a good mate of ours as we've worked on various projects. Purple Wiggle Lachy created a wonderful melody for a song but was stuck for the words so we called on the best wordsmith we know, and Ben was kind enough to come back with this great song".
In addition to the music, The Wiggle Town! Tour takes off in Sydney on March 7 through to August and will give Wiggly fans the chance to catch The Wiggles performing LIVE in more intimate venues with a tour of RSL's, Theatres, Leagues Clubs and smaller entertainment centres. Tour dates are being added daily here.
