"The 'Ready, Steady, Wiggle!' tour will be the biggest and brightest wiggly show this year," said Emma. "We'll play our wiggly favorites from 'Hot Potato' and 'Rock-a-Bye your Bear' to the new hits, 'Do the Propeller!' and 'Emma (with the bow in her hair),' added Anthony. Simon chimed in, "There will be lots of surprises on stage – stay tuned to hear more." "We also can't wait to see the mini Emma army at every show - pint sized girls dressed in yellow with bows in their hair," mentioned Lachy.

Always of charitable spirit, The Wiggles are proud to continue their partnership with Corus Feeds Kids for all Canadian tour dates.
