The Wiggles have relaunched in the US with a big G’day at the Australian Consulate in NYC with meet-and-greets, performance and a few little Emma’s!
Despite a rainy grey day outside, inside the Australian Consulate the colours were popping when The Wiggles took the stage for their US relaunch. Graciously hosted by the Australian Consulate, The Wiggles came to meet-and-greet and of course to sing and dance with their young fans. Next up, Anthony, Lachy, Simon and Emma will perform at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey and a few more East Coast locations before finishing their whirlwind 12-day long US tour, ending with a three city Emma and Lachy tour in Canada.
It was great to see Gisela Abrams (SVP Global Partnerships at The International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association), Paul Field (Managing Director at The Wiggles) and Alex Ishchenko (Licensing & Merchandise at The Wiggles) at the event held at the Australian Consulate in NYC to be a part of the relaunch of The Wiggles in the US.
