The Blue Wiggle, Anthony Field asked their fans on Twitter this week whether they would be interested in attending an over-18s pub gig by the original Wiggles for charity.
It has been confirmed that this reunion show will take place in January or February next year.
All proceeds from the show will be donated to a friend of the Wiggles, named David Savage. Mr Savage survived a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan but is now in a wheelchair.
The original Wiggles members include Greg Page (Yellow Wiggle), Jeff Fatt (Purple Wiggle), Murray Cook (Red Wiggle), Anthony Field (Blue Wiggle) and a fifth member, Phillip Wilcher who left after the band’s first album.
They have reportedly been in regular contact with one another, with Field and Fatt still involved in the “business side” of the band.
“We’re pretty excited about [the reunion], I think it’ll be fun,” Field said.
This will mark the first time the Wiggles have played in a pub, and the show will start much later than your standard Wiggles gigs.
“Jeff will probably fall asleep for real!” Cook said.
