The Wiggles bring their "Taking Off!" world tour to the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24. Tickets go on sale May 31 at noon and are available at the box office, online at www.Tickets.com, or by phone at 888-223-6000.
After 21 years of entertaining children around the globe, The Wiggles will introduce three new cast members, including the first-ever female member, Emma Watkins as the Yellow Wiggle. Founding member Anthony Field, known as the Blue Wiggle, rounds out this vibrant group with Simon Pryce (Red Wiggle) and Lachlan Gillespie (Purple Wiggle). The "Taking Off!" worldwide tour will crisscross North America, hitting more than 35 major cities between August and October in support of a new album of the same name.
Always educational and entertaining, The Wiggles will be joined onstage by Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus for an extra wiggly good time. This marks the first time that North American audiences will get to meet the new lineup and hear new music, as well as sing along to their favorite hits, which are all incorporated into The Wiggles' live show. "Taking Off!" features 21 new feet-stomping songs, including the catchy soon-to-be favorite, "Do The Propeller!" as well as "Beep! Beep! Buckle Up!" "Emma (with the Bow in Her Hair)" and classics such as "Rock-A-Bye Your Bear" and "Get Ready to Wiggle."
The "Taking Off!" DVD is slated for release later this summer, and a new television series will debut on Sprout in the fall. For a complete list of tour dates, visit www.thewiggles.com.
