    Went to see The Wiggles, *****es!!!

    Took the kids to see the Wiggles at the Izod center. This was their celebratory 20th anniversary tour.:eek:

    As usual (2nd time seeing them), they put on a great show for the kids whilst keeping the parents involved with comments that fly over the heads of the chillens. They can be pretty self-deprecating at times. At one point they were trying to come up with some notable stuff about NJ and instead wound up showing how little they know about the US (they're Australian), which led to some serious good-natured ribbing on the part of the audience. They ran with it and it was a ongoing improv joke throughout the rest of the performance.

    We had some really good seats, floor level, 4th row from the stage. They are a really outgoing group of guys, walking through the entire audience and interacting with as many kids as possible.

    Here's my son, showing the patience of a saint waiting for the show to start:

    My daughter loves Wiggles. I was so happy when she graduated from Barney to Wiggles because they are much more watchable. Some of the female dancers are pretty hot too!

    They used to be a band called the Cockroaches way, way back in the day. That's where they got their musical chops. Played virtually every dive in Sydney and Melbourne worth naming.

    My sister and bro-in-law were big into the Sydney music scene back then and have been drunk with them a few times way back then.

    Made a lot of money out of the Wiggles thing and good luck to them.

    Congrats, rich guy!

    My wife looked in to Wiggles tickets when they were around our neighborhood, and almost choked when she saw the per seat price.

    Please. Ever since Greg Wiggle stepped down due to health reasons, they're not the same band.

    You can't just put a guy in the yellow shirt and act like their wasn't a dropoff in songwriting and musicianship. The Wiggles are over. What's left is a tribute band.

    I didn't know Ensign Chekov played guitar for the Wiggles.

    The Wiggles' target audience is toddlers and pre-schoolers.

    Your children look significantly older than that.

    Every big rock band has their set of groupies.

    That's pretty cool. You can tell they had pretty humble beginnings from the way they joke around on stage.

    Yea, but I'm a civil servant so I can afford it.:D Seriously though, seeing my kids' faces light up like the Beatles just walked on stage is well worth it.

    [QUOTE=SAR I;4063233]Please. Ever since Greg Wiggle stepped down due to health reasons, they're not the same band.

    Totally agree about Greg, but it actually allowed Anthony, Murray and Captain Feathersword to take on bigger roles, which is a plus. Sam is a bit of a back-up player and Jeff is, well, Jeff. He wasn't even there, he was having a pacemaker (what is it with these guys and their hearts?) installed back in Sydney. Some kid 'Brad' was filling in for him, although they insist that Jeff will be back. If so, they are back to Who status before Entwhistle OD'd. If not, it's probably time to pull the plug.

    Wow, I completely missed that, thanks for pointing it out. Allow me to reciprocate with some equally keen insight;
