Question Time – The Wiggles Live

The Wiggles

The Wiggles – 20 years older and three quarters set to retire

Very soon H and I are going to see The Wiggles live. We’re very excited about it as we only really got to know The Wiggles when we visited the in-laws in Australia in 2010 – with the new (but not as new as the New new) yellow Wiggle. However, we got back to the UK to find that The Wiggles Show was on Nick Jr every morning, so with the V+ programmed we got used to the old (proper) Wiggles with the original yellow Wiggle, Greg.

So soon ‘our’ Wiggles became the original Wiggles as it was meant to be. Just to add to the confusion Nick Jr started to show ‘Wiggle And Learn’ which featured new yellow Wiggle, but we were used to Greg.

So it was with a bit more excitement from us mums than actually from our kids when we found out there’d been some goings-on with The Wiggles, with original yellow rejoining the group, and new-now-old-yellow Wiggle (are you keeping up here?) no longer a Wiggle – and they were going to do a tour. I’d felt H was too young last year, so snapped up tickets the day they became available, rather excited to see the original line up. (n.b. see the following image, it’s not the original-original line up, as there’s only four of them these days)

There Once Was Five Wiggles

Once upon a time there were five Wiggles and they were young but they didn’t have colour coded shirts

I mentioned to a friend how this felt like a final tour, and that I suspected something would be announced, and OH LOOK. Three Wiggles are retiring – so now there’s a New new yellow, a new purple and a new red – which makes me look forward even more to the shows coming up as it’s our first and last chance to see them. H, being almost three probably wont remember a thing.

One thing I do want her to remember if she does hold any memories in later life of it is that she still has her hearing.

Which brings me to my question – how loud is a Wiggles concert? I have to wear earplugs because of my tinnitus, and I’m bringing H up with a healthy attitude (I hope!) to protecting her ears. We own some KidProof ear defenders – am I being over the top to take those with us, or are the volumes at a Wiggles show much lower than your regular gig? (I’d hope so!) Which of course, in turn, may mean I don’t need earplugs either! Bonus!

Please let us know, anyway – I’m hoping it wont be too loud!


  1. Hello! I’ve been to see them at least twice before – you definitely don’t need to wear ear defenders, it’s really very much quieter than a normal gig as totally aimed at toddlers! Don’t worry!!!
