What Kids Want to Know
WITH so many changes going on in the Wiggles, kids have been asking a lot of questions. We put together a list and asked the Old and New Wiggles to clear up some queries the kids have. Here are their replies:
1. Are you going to miss being on stage?
(Murray) We will-we have had such a great time singing and dancing with you all over the past 21 years. But it’s time for us to spend more time at home.
(Jeff) We might make a few cameo appearances at concerts in the future, but we’ll be happy to be supporting the success of the new Wiggles team from behind the scenes.
2. What is Jeff going to do if he doesn't have anyone to keep him awake anymore?
(Jeff) I’m still going to have a big role in the musical side of things from behind the scenes and so will Murray and Greg. Anthony and the new Wiggles have all promised to help me stay awake!
3. Are you still going to help the New Wiggles after you finish the tour?
We certainly will! We don’t want to stop entertaining and delighting children-it’s what we love to do. Murray, Jeff and Greg will still be very involved creatively-coming up with new songs and performances and supporting the new Wiggles behind the scenes.
5. Are the New Wiggles going be going on the last tour with you? What will they be doing?
(Anthony) Yes they will. Emma, Lachy and Simon have all been part of the Wiggles family for a few years now. They have been part of our shows as Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Dorothy the Dinosaur.
6. Is the Pink Wiggle Kylie going to sing on the tour?
(Murray) We have had some really special moments over the past 21 years and singing and dancing with the Pink Wiggle was one of them! We’re still finalising the plans for our tour and we’re sure there will be some special moments along the way.
7. Are the New Wiggles just as funny as you?
(Greg) The Wiggles will remain The Wiggles for as long as those coloured skivvies are singing and dancing and entertaining children. The new members of the Wiggles will have their own talents and their own personalities, so of course it won’t be exactly the same, but we think that will actually be a good thing. Emma is a great singer and dancer and plays the drums. Lachy is a great singer and also plays the piano and Simon is an amazing singer and has a huge presence on stage. And we think that all of the new Wiggles are pretty funny too!
... And Some Questions Just for Emma
1. Why did you choose to be the Yellow Wiggle?
“When it was offered to me I was very excited, it’s just brilliant. Just to be a role model is great for any children, girls or boys.”
3. Were you a Wiggles fan when you were little? Do you have any memories of that you can share with us?
"I've been a huge fan of The Wiggles since I was a little girl, so it's a huge privilege to be invited to wear one of the skivvies and perform for a whole new generation of children," she said.
“I am The Wiggles generation and I remember seeing you guys (referring to The Wiggles) at the Seymour Centre and I’m in a DVD jumping in a matching pinafore with my sister”
