One of the most iconic children’s entertainment groups in the world is set to make its debut in Red Deer this week.
The Wiggles Big Show Tour will be in Red Deer for two shows on Wednesday at the Memorial Centre, with shows at 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
“We’re so excited to be coming back to perform in Canada! The Wiggles Big Show is so much fun, and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it,” said The Wiggles’ founding member and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field.
“You’ll hear all the classic songs you love plus new ones like ‘Hey Tsehay!’ The show also features a variety of dance styles and performances, and we’re bringing all our Wiggly friends too. Children will see and hear drums, keyboards, banjos, guitars, bagpipes and lots of singing. We hope to see you there!”
According to a press release, the Wiggles are more popular now than they’ve ever been in their 30-plus year history. They are watched daily on platforms like Netflix, and streamed on The Wiggles YouTube channel which has more than 2.4 million subscribers and more than 3 billion views.
Their Treehouse TV shows are on in 6 million homes, and The Wiggles are the No 1 program with kids 2 – 11 across all kid’s networks in Canada.
During their first Canadian show in three years, The Wiggles will introduce the new Yellow Wiggle Tsehay Hawkins, as well as Caterina Wiggle and John Wiggle, from the Fruit Salad TV series.
The Wiggles Big Show Tour! features all the Wiggly classics and new songs from the group, and will be the first opportunity for fans across Canada to meet the new Yellow Wiggle Tsehay Hawkins. After the retirement of Emma Watkins at the end of 2021, the coveted Yellow jersey was passed along to Tsehay who becomes both the youngest (16 years old) and first Black Wiggle in the group’s 30-year history.
