The Wiggles continue to be the most successful children’s entertainment group in Australia for live concert attendances and for having sold over 23 million DVDs and 5 million CDs worldwide.
Their career highlights include selling out 12 shows at New York's prestigious Madison Square Garden Theatre and being invited to participate in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on three occasions, something no other Australian artist has ever done. The State of Louisiana and the City of New York presented them with awards for their contribution to the education of children.
More recently, they were appointed UNICEF Ambassadors and through their music have helped with various sanitation campaigns, as well as being awarded by Macquarie University the degree of Doctor of Letters honoris causa in recognition of their contribution to early childhood education and children’s music and entertainment.
It's an exciting new era for The Wiggles with a new generation of Wiggles fans singing and dancing with Anthony (Blue), Emma (Yellow), Lachy (Purple) and Simon (Red)!
The Wiggles are the world's most popular children's entertainment group which formed in Sydney, Australia in 1991. Having been performing for over 24 years, it's now the case that children who once saw the fab four of fun are now bringing their children to enjoy the best in early childhood entertainment! The last year has seen The Wiggles confirmed (GFK charts) as the #1 selling children's artist on DVD, the #1 children's entertainment live concert attraction (their most recent tour has sold out over 100 shows!), awarded the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) award for the Best Children's Album (making them the most awarded artist in any one category).
This year, having already stormed the charts with Rock & Roll Preschool, The Wiggles will be releasing a new CD and DVD (The Wiggles Meet the Orchestra) featuring the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and will be performing shows with them. Theyre also taking their live show on tour throughout every Australian state and territory, with plans to tour North America later in the year. Of course, The Wiggles are bringing along their good friends, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus. And in an exciting development - a new show Emma!will be broadcast later this year. It's a show that will feature singing and dancing fun with the ever popular yellow Wiggle, Emma!
