AUBURN HILLS - The original Fab Four from Down Under are back! The Wiggles summer tour will reunite Anthony, Jeff and Murray with Yellow Wiggle Greg Page as they perform together again for the first time in five years in "Getting Strong – The Wiggles! Live in Concert" at The Palace on Friday, Aug. 10 at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to "Follow the Leader" and dance the "Hot Potato" with The Wiggles, Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and all the Wiggly Dancers when they are "Getting Strong." The Wiggles are strong advocates for a healthy lifestyle and are excited to bring this positive message on the importance of fitness and exercise for all ages to The Palace.
Come and wiggle in the aisles for "etting Strong – The Wiggles! Live in Concert." The Wiggles are excited to bring their highly interactive, fun and educational message throughout The United States. Audience participation features include:
The Wiggles are proud to announce that the U.S. school readiness initiative Reach Out and Read will be the official charity partner of their 2012 Tour. Reach Out and Read prepares America's youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to "prescribe" books and encourage families to read together. Together, Reach Out and Read and The Wiggles will work to raise awareness about the importance of parental involvement and reading aloud to young children. Reach Out and Read doctors and nurses serve more than 4 million children and their families annually at 4,946 pediatric practices, hospitals, clinics and health centers in all 50 states. Parents who participate in the research-proven program read to their children more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and a six-month developmental edge. A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will be used to support Reach Out and Read Programs across the United States.
The Wiggles, the world's number one preschool entertainers, performed more than 350 shows to more than 1.5 million fans since 2005 in the United States alone. The Wiggles perform over 200 shows annually across four continents. The Wiggles are seen on TV in over 120 countries worldwide. Fans can catch The Wiggles on television exclusively in the U.S. on 24-hour preschool network Sprout as hosts of Sprout's "Wiggly Waffle," which airs every weekday morning from 6–9 a.m. ET. Fans can also watch The Wiggles on NBC's new Saturday morning preschool block, NBC Kids. The Wiggles have sold more than 23 million DVDs and videos, 7 million CDs and 8 million books in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
