By popular demand, following their successful tour of New Zealand in September last year, The Wiggles are set to return for another tour in June.

The Wiggles, Greg Page (Yellow) Anthony Field (Blue) Murray Cook (Red and Jeff Fatt (Purple) have been performing around the world for 14 years and have now sold over 17 million DVDs/Videos and 5 million albums worldwide.

The Wiggles are the leaders of children’s music, conquering the United States with their bright, appealing and highly entertainment music. Australian children have adored them for over a decade and New Zealand’s little ones are no different to the rest of the children around the world when it comes to THE WIGGLES.

Along with The Wiggles, also coming to New Zealand are all their Wiggly friends, Captain Feathersword, Dorothy The Dinosaur, Henry The Octopus, Wags The Dog, the Wiggly Red Coat Dancers, elephants, tigers and eagles… other surprises!

The Wiggles will perform songs from their latest CD/DVD LIVE HOT POTATOES! including favourites such as the Monkey Dance, Play Your Guitar with Murray, Hot Potato and many more.

It’s not surprising that The Wiggles continue to carve a swathe through the United States as the hottest children’s entertainers around. They now tour America three times a year, Last year they performed 12 shows at Madison Square Garden and sold 270,00 tickets during the November tour.

Back on the home front, it was reported that The Wiggles were the highest earning entertainers in Australia. But these four extraordinary entertainers remain focused on what they love most – making children happy!

Other exciting news is that it has also been announced that Dreamworld on the Gold Coast of Australia will be home to ‘Wiggles World’ theme park attraction which will open later this year.

Andrew Denton summed it up when presenting The Wiggles with the ARIA Outstanding Achievement Award for their international success – “Four men who have gone on to dominate every part of the world not yet one metre high. Their passion for what they do – their genuine affection for their fans, the enthusiasm of the stage shows and their determination…..All these are the hallmarks of greatness. Songs crafted for an audience already high on life they never fail to fill their young audience with joy”

The Wiggles are very excited to be returning to New Zealand.

Tickets are on sale now - but be quick – they will sell like…………
hot potatoes!!

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
