Greg Page Returns as the Yellow Wiggle
The Wiggles today announced that Greg Page, the original Yellow Wiggle, is reuniting with the world-famous children’s entertainment group. Sam Moran, who has been the Yellow Wiggle for the past five years, graciously offered to step aside on hearing of Greg’s ability to return to the group.
Greg resumes his place alongside longtime friends Anthony Field, Murray Cook and Jeff Fatt. He starts straight away on new Wiggles productions including CD, DVD and television content, plus local and international tours, kicking off with Australia in March and later this year the UK and USA.
Greg, a founding member of The Wiggles in 1991, was forced to resign from his much-loved work five years ago due to illness. Sam stepped in immediately to take over as the Yellow Wiggle.
“We thank Sam for his wonderful contribution to the group for the past five years. He joined at a difficult time for Greg and the group, and we’re so grateful for all he has done,” said Wiggles Manager Paul Field.
“Sam is a gifted singer and we’re pleased that Wiggles Productions will continue to support him by making Hot Potato Studios available to him for future projects,” added Field.
“I am very proud of my five years as the Yellow Wiggle and the group’s continued success with me as their lead singer,” said Sam Moran.
“I have enjoyed every minute of my nine years touring with the group, but I now look forward to new opportunities and more time spent with my wife and two- year-old daughter,” he added.
According to Greg, this is an extraordinary moment in his personal history with the group.
“This takes me full circle. I’m excited to be back with my friends and to be
entertaining our incredible fans again. I didn’t get a chance to say farewell last time, so this is an opportunity I couldn’t refuse. I’m feeling great and looking forward to doing what I love.”
“Greg is an integral part of Wiggles history and will now play a role in its future. Despite his absence for the past five years, fans worldwide remember him fondly. It’s terrific to be able to bring him back into the group,” said Paul Field.
