takingoffwigglesBefore I became a parent, I dreaded THE WIGGLES... and it wasn't because of anything that The Wiggles did. It was because of some parents I'd run across that made The Wiggles sound like a terrible plague that had infected their children. In fact, I think it was a trendy thing to do - to knock The Wiggles - much like some of the hangers-on that bash Caillou just to be a part of the in-crowd. Truth be told, there's good reason why The Wiggles are such a Global phenomenon: They've written some great pop songs... and if you don't believe me, check out ReWiggled - A Tribute to The Wiggles. There's some gems that transcend genres, and if The Living End covering "Hot Potato" doesn't snag you, check out Oh Mercy doing "Toot, Toot, Chugga, Chugga Big Red Car." Now, in 2013 - I have a Wiggle-loving little one (and a baby who will probably rock some Wiggles), and the Australian supergroup has been re-energized with a new lineup for a new generation. From August-October, North American Audiences will get their first taste of the new show first-hand when THE WIGGLES - TAKING OFF! Tour arrives.
