OG Wiggles Tour
Also the OG Wiggles are on tour as well. Following the huge success of their recent sold-out adults-only concert, the OG Wiggles are back! With their last reunion performance receiving an overwhelming response and selling out in just five minutes, Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt and Greg Page will tour the country with very special Saturday and Sunday night 18+ shows, featuring some of The Wiggles’ best-loved songs and cameos from characters such as Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog, and Henry the Octopus.
Unfortunately, they don’t have a show in Newcastle but you can see them on 23 April 2022 at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney.
The OG Wiggles will be supported by some of Australia’s best bands. Each show will have a wild support act, featuring some of Australia’s most loved and esteemed music artists, including Polish Club, DZ Deathrays and more.
Jeff Fatt, OG Purple Wiggle, said, “All of those children who loved The Wiggles in the 90s are now adults who love the nostalgia and fun from that time in their lives. This night is for the grown-ups and is a chance to bring back some of that genuine, high-spirited liveliness again. We can’t wait to relive those childhood memories and dance the night away to some of the favourite old-school tunes.”
“It will be The Wiggles as you remember and love them, but we’ll all have a bit more grey hair… and there’s a bar. We’ll be playing all your favourite songs, and put on a show you won’t forget,”added Murray Cook, OG Red Wiggle. “Looking forward to getting back on stage with the OG Wiggles -we always have a great time together, and can’t wait to see the “kids” reliving their childhood. I may have to pull back a bit on the dancing this time around though!” said Greg Page, OG Yellow Wiggle.
Tickets for the Sydney OG Wiggles Reunion Tour go on sale on Friday 22 October at 4pm through Ticketek. Tickets are for 18+ and are $45.
