Oh me oh my! Wiggles heading to Sacramento

But before you start whistling "Love me do" we should probably explain - it's the Australian sensation, The Wiggles, that's scheduled to play Arco in July.

Tickets are on sale for the preschool band's Go Bananas Live! show, which has performances scheduled for 3 and 6:30 p.m. July 21, according to a Wiggles news release.

The concert features singing and dancing with the four Wiggles - Sam, Anthony, Murray and Jeff - and their Wiggly cohorts and features songs from their latest album, "The Wiggles Go Bananas."

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000 or at the Arco box office.

Tickets range from $15 to $32 and seats purchased in the $32 level will include an exclusive Wiggles giveaway, the release states.

Got a Wiggle-crazed child just too, well, wiggly to wait for their Wiggles fix?

Parents and preschoolers can now explore a new interactive Wiggles Web site.

The site,, is an ad-free "virtual world" featuring games, stories, coloring pages and other activities, said Alicia McAllister, a Wiggles spokeswoman.

An early childhood consultant helped develop the site's content to ensure the activities incorporate educational principles into the fun and games.

Children and parents can access some activities on the site for free, or pay a $6 monthly fee for premium access, which includes access to merchandise discounts, presale Wiggles tickets and a monthly "report card" for parents to let them know how their child is doing, she said.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
