For about a four year time span, The Wiggles were the most important men in my house. My daughter, who is now 13, was obsessed with the children’s group from Australia, and they have the honour of being her very first concert! Her love of the red, blue, yellow and purple themed group that sang such catchy tunes as ‘Hot Potato’ and ‘Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy’ was passed on to her younger brothers and was probably the only children’s show that I didn’t dread watching, in fact I loved The Wiggles almost as much as my kids did!
Nowadays The Wiggles are almost unrecognizable to me, with only the Blue Wiggle, Anthony Field being the only original member still performing. That’s about to change now after Field sent a tweet asking if anyone would be interested in a reunion tour with all 4 original members.
Anyone be interested in attending a pub gig,for over 18s Original Wiggles Reunion next year.Played live and loud!It’s for a great charity?

The response was overwhelming. The idea for the reunion is to raise money for the band’s friend Dave Savage who was injured in Afghanistan when a suicide bomber detonated near him. TODAY reports that Field wasn’t sure that adults would want to gather to see a children’s band so he tweeted to see how many people would respond.
