The Wiggles Make Australian History as First Band to Have Two Arena Tours in One Year

Throughout November and December, The Wiggles will be bringing their Holiday Party Big Show around Australia. 

The Wiggles

Following a sold-out arena tour of the country earlier this year, The Wiggles are about to make Australian history as the first band to perform two arena tours in one year.

Throughout November and December, they’ll be swapping their Big Red Car for a Big Red Sleigh as they bring The Wiggles Holiday Party Big Show around Australia.

After three decades, this end-of-year show has become a beloved tradition for families around the country. Anthony, Simon, Lachy and Tsehay will be joined by John, Caterina, Evie and new Blue Wiggles Lucia, following in the hallowed footsteps of her father.

The tour will begin in Canberra on Thursday, November 10th and finish with a huge Sydney show on Saturday, December 17th (see full dates below). Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 2nd at 10am local time.

“The lead up to Christmas is the most magical time of year, and we’re so excited for everyone to experience our Holiday Party Big Show,” Anthony said. “There are so many surprises, plus a special appearance by Santa, and we’re going to make it snow! It’s going to be so much fun.

The original Blue Wiggle also shared his excitement about the prospect of sharing the stage with his daughter. “I’m also so happy that we’ll be joined by my daughter Lucia, who is following in my footsteps and wearing the blue skivvy. Lucia is a trained dancer who has also been dancing with The Wiggles since she was a child. She did such an amazing job dancing on our last tour – she was born to be a Wiggle.”

In the meantime, you can find out how the band’s first arena tour of the year went by getting a copy of the new issue of Rolling Stone AU/NZ, set to hit newsstands on Monday, September 5th, which The Wiggles were the glam cover stars for. The September-November edition features unprecedented access to their recent Australia arena tour and to their Hot Potato Studios in Sydney, and also comes with a Wiggles-themed adult colouring book (subscribe here).
