IT'S FINALLY OUT... i've been working on this forever. i'm a S-L-O-W scrapper. =)
(purple block) - Dancing in the aisles is an integral part of the Wiggles concert experience, just like bringing a rose for Dorothy the Dinosaur, playing the guitar with Murray, and of course, shouting the traditional “WAKE UP, JEFF!” But who would have thought that the normally rather shy Neko-chan would throw himself so wholeheartedly into dancing and singing along to almost every single song? From Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to the closing medley, the little guy was grooving away in the aisle and thoroughly enjoying himself. Mummy couldn’t help but snap photo after photo of Neko-chan in action, and there are sizable portions of the concert where i have completely no recollection of what happened on stage. And through the whole time, all i could say was...
(blue block) - Turns out that today was the opening day of The Wiggles Celebration Tour, which will be the final tour for Murray, Greg and Jeff. This was also the day that the Wiggles broke the news of their retirement to the fans. And so the concert ended, with the kids on a post-concert high, but one would notice that the adults all looked a little sad. These guys have been entertaining kids for 20 years, and us parents have become strangely attached to them. i’m just glad to have attended their final tour as the original Wiggles, and captured this poignant shot of Greg, Murray and Jeff bowing a big, final goodbye.
