To all our Wiggly fans,
We are writing to let you know about a big decision which will lead to some exciting changes for The Wiggles.
Jeff, Murray, and Greg have decided it's time to step off the stage and hand over the Purple, Red and Yellow skivvies to a new generation of Wiggles.
We've been entertaining children around the world for 21 years now and it has been a fantastic ride in our Big Red Car. Singing, dancing and making music with you all has been great fun but it has also meant spending a long time away from our own families and friends. We tour eight months of the year and have performed more than 6000 shows since The Wiggles began, and Murray, Jeff and Greg have decided it's time to spend more time at home.
We will commence a Celebration Tour in Singapore at the end of May, with shows planned for the UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand in the coming months. We will then return to Australia for more shows in November and December so that Murray, Jeff and Greg can say farewell to you all.
We can't wait for you to meet Emma, Lachlan, and Simon, who will put on the Yellow, Purple and Red skivvies and join Anthony on stage next year. All three are hugely talented performers and have worked with us for several years. They know how special it is to make children smile, sing and dance. We know you will love them just as much as we do.
Murray, Jeff and Greg also want you to know that they will still be very involved in The Wiggles from behind the scenes, creating new songs and dances and supporting the new team.
Each year we perform for nearly a million people across the world. We have been so incredibly privileged to be a part of your lives and we want to say a huge thank you to all our fans wherever they may be. We've had so much fun over the past 21 years writing and recording songs, making TV shows and DVDs and of course performing in our live shows.
We've got another few months performing together before the BIG SKIVVY HANDOVER to the new team and we'd love to see you at one of our concerts. Stay tuned for news of when the tour will be coming to you.
