New-look Wiggles wriggle into town

JUMP in your big red car and prepare to do the propeller: The Wiggles are in town.

After success in Hobart yesterday, the four-piece children's entertainers group will today perform two shows at Launceston's Princess Theatre.

It's the first Australian tour for the new crew fresh from North America but not the first time performing together in the city.

Purple Wiggle Lachie Gillespie remembered buying a Lego set on his last visit to Launceston as a Wiggly Dancer while Wiggles stalwart Anthony Field looked forward to returning to the Cataract Gorge.

It's a big skivvy to fill for new Wiggles Emma Watkins, Simon Pryce and Gillespie, but the trio said they were excited.

"Children are such a wonderful audience, we feel right at home," Pryce said.

From Launceston, The Wiggles will travel to Adelaide.

Door sales are available at the Princess Theatre before the 10am and 1pm shows - but get in quick, they're selling like hot potatoes.
