The Wiggles “Rock n’ Roll Preschool” tour follows the runaway success of last year, where The Wiggles sold out 137 shows across every state and territory in Australia and performed to over a quarter of a million fans around the world, making The Wiggles the most successful children’s entertainment show in Australia.

Following exceptional ratings for The Wiggles TV Series Ready, Steady, Wiggle! ABC Kids TV has rush released the broadcast of the second series of Ready, Steady, Wiggle! You can catch The Wiggles each day at 4:25pm.

Having closed Hyde Park last year with a record crowd, The Wiggles have been selected to headline the family festivities for Australia Day with performances at the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House and at Parramatta Park.

The Rock n’ Roll Preschool tour will run from March through to July of this year and will feature songs from their new Rock n’ Roll Preschool CD and DVD. This release will top the charts of every home! You’ll shake to That’s the Sound of Rock & Roll, rise and shine with Wake Up!, swing along as you Dance with Emma and be the coolest kid in preschool with I Want a Leather Jacket. The Rock n’ Roll Preschool tour will get you all shook up, mixing some of these new hits with Wiggles classics such as Hot Potato!, Rock – a –Bye Your Bear and Do the Propeller. The fab four of fun for under-fives will of course be joined by Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus!

‘The Mini Emma Army’ is a phrase one American journalist used to describe the children who come to each show dressed as Emma. She has become so popular that we had to create a range of Emma outfits and accoutrements from their ballet slippers to headbands, shoe bows to the Emma costumes. From Perth to Philadelphia, from Townsville to Toronto, it’s a sea of yellow and beautiful bows singing and dancing to their favourite Wiggle
With so many sold out shows last year, you better get a wiggle on and get your tickets now as Wiggle tickets sell like … Hot Potatoes!
Anthony, Emma, Lachy and Simon have declared the Rock n’ Roll Preschool is open now and the lesson for today is to have some fun!
