Q&A With Murray Cook from The Wiggles!
What can you tell us about your upcoming concert tour? I’m sure all our little readers would love to know what you have in store for them during The Wiggles “Big Birthday” celebration.
The Wiggles! “Big Birthday” Tour is going to be jam-packed with celebrations! You’ll be able to sing a-long to all your favourite Wiggles songs. The show will definitely have a party flavor!
Are all of your Wiggly pals excited to be celebrating the Big 2-0 with their adoring fans?
We never expected to still be doing this after 20 years but we’re enjoying it so much! It’s amazing that some of our earliest fans are now parents themselves and bringing their own children along to shows!
Tell us how you plan to get the “Wiggly Party” started?
The Wiggles 20th Birthday started in Australia in January with a huge concert in our nation’s capital, Canberra in front of 30,000 fans. We were so lucky to be joined by Al Roker from the NBC TODAY show who sang Fruit Salad with us! The birthday celebrations will continue until the end of our tour schedule in December.
What sets this tour apart from your previous acts?
There will be lots of birthday surprises but, due to popular demand, we’ll be singing all your favorite Wiggles songs as well.
With all the great songs you sing to get little feet dancing like “Hot Potato”, “Fruit Salad”, and “Shimmy Shake”, which one is your favorite tune to wiggle around to?
My favorite is “Play Your Guitar With Murray” of course!
You tour so much, going to great places like the US and Britain, what do you like to do most when you get home?
I love spending time with my family. It’s nice to be able to go along and watch my children play sport on a Saturday. I enjoy watching live music and spending time at my holiday house at the beach.
It is no secret that your favorite instrument is the guitar. When did you first learn to play? And what do you like most about it?
I started playing guitar at 11!
What advice do you have for aspiring singers/musicians that are just getting started?
Believe in yourself. If music is what you really want to do, be passionate about it and follow your dreams.
Rumor has it that there will be a 5th Wiggle joining you on stage every night of the tour. What can you tell us about this exciting opportunity for these lucky winners?
It is essentially a contest whereby one person in every city will have the opportunity to sing ‘Fruit Salad’ on stage with The Wiggles as the fifth Wiggle during the North American tour!
The contest will be run through our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/thewiggles) and parents can submit auditions of themselves singing ‘Fruit Salad’. We will then select one person per city to perform live in their home city. The contest will be up and running soon.
