Concert Review: The Wiggles in San Jose, California
Most of the time, you’ll read my reviews of the country or rock concerts that I attend.
Last night, I took my wife and two kids to see the fab four from down under…The Wiggles!
We bought the tickets a few months ago and waited until 30 minutes before the show to tell them where we were going. The look on their faces when we finally told them was worth the price of admission. I have never seen them so excited.
We arrived at the HP Pavillion about 25 minutes before the show, which was plenty of time for us to drop $45 on a program (needed the set list) a shirt, a CD and some stickers. We made our way to section 109 which were the perfect seats for us. We had a great view of the stage and were just high enough that no one was obstructing the view.
The Wiggles came on stage about 6:40 and opened up with one of my kids favorite tunes, the Big Red Car. They came out and my kids eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning! I was nervous at first because although my daughter went last year, my son hadn’t and I thought that the noise might be too much for him. My fears went away when he stood up and started dancing to Rock-A-Bye Your Bear 🙂
The Wiggles always do a great job performing for the kids. But, its overlooked what a good job they do for the parents as well. This is no Barney show. This show is actually entertaining.
Following the above mentioned songs, the Wiggles set list included songs such as: You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, Follow the Leader, Getting Strong, Quack Quack Quack Cock A Doodle Doo, Old Dan Tucker, Monkey Man, Fruit Salad, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the crowd favorite Hot Potato. I’ll admit, the only downer of the night was that they didn’t play Shimmie Shake (a Beatles tribute). This is my kids favorite song, and it was listed on the set list, but we do understand that the set list is subject to change. Next time, please play it 🙂
My daughters favorite moment of the night had to come when she was able to hand her rose, who she brought for Dorothy the Dinosaur, to one of the Wiggily dancers. She was so excited and was glowing the whole time after. My son liked when Captain Feathersword came out and danced and did his usual routine but he also loved when Yellow Wiggle Sam Moran came up to our section and stood right next to him. It was very cute!
The Wiggles perform many, many shows each year around the world, but they always seem to enjoy what they do. I truly believe that they have a love for their jobs and a love for their fans, especially the children. I recommend seeing them in concert with your children if you ever get the chance. The show is not silly, kids stuff. You will see a great mix of singing, dancing, acrobatics and gymnastics. You’ll have a great time which is well worth the price of the ticket.
Thanks Wiggles for making my kids trip to the show a great time! We’ll look forward to seeing you again next time.
