The Wiggles tour comes to Montclair.
As you get the kids ready to head back to school, don’t forget to plan some fun things for that first month back. This September, the Wiggles are set to perform at the Wellmont Theater on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 1 p.m. on their Ready, Steady, Wiggle! tour. The tour is kicking off from Sept. 5 through Oct. 19 in the United States and Canada, so don’t miss it when it hits New Jersey!
The Wiggles are an Australian singing group for children, with hit songs such as “Big Red Car” and “Fruit Salad.” The current members of the group are Anthony Field, Emma Watkins, Simon Pryce and Lachlan Gillespie. Field is the only current member who was in the original group, as the others left around 2012 for various reasons, including health, yet three of the original members continue to have creative and production input in the group.
The new Wiggles group began touring with its new members in early 2013 before returning to Australia after a seven-year absence on Australian television by filming their new show, Ready, Steady, Wiggle! The new show is set to air on ABC in September.
This tour will also feature popular Wiggles characters, such as Captain Feathersword and Dorothy the Dinosaur. The goal of the Wiggles is to provide great kids music that is both fun and developmentally appropriate, making this show something that is sure to get kids of all ages moving and grooving to the new Wiggles music – and some old favorites as well.
Tickets are available now starting at $19.50 and are available at the Wellmont Theater box office, as well as online at livenation.com. Parking is available in a small lot across from the Wellmont, as well as various side streets. The show starts at 1 p.m. but doors open at noon, so be sure to get there early for the perfect Wiggles day!
