GET ready to Wiggle.

With sold-out shows across the country, the Wiggles are set to roll the big red car into Emerald on July 1, with Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus on board.

The fabulous four will be bringing the Rock and Roll Preschool tour to the Central Highlands with a rollicking performance.

Tickets go on sale today at 2pm and the phones will be ringing off the hook with it being the supergroup's first tour of the Highlands in years.

"The Wiggles Rock and Roll Preschool tour follows the runaway success of last year, where the Wiggles sold out 137 shows across every state and territory in Australia," a Wiggles spokeswoman said.

While the musical maestros grace TV screens each day, local littlies will have the chance to line up and see them live at the Emerald Town Hall with the group hitting the road from March until July, performing songs from their new CD and also some old classics.

"You'll shake to That's the Sound of Rock and Roll, rise and shine with Wake Up!, swing along as you Dance with Emma and be the coolest kid in preschool with I Want a Leather Jacket," the spokeswoman said.

"The Rock and Roll Preschool tour will get you all shook up, mixing some of these new hits with Wiggles classics such as Hot Potato!, Rock -a- Bye Your Bear and Do the Propeller!"

And girl power will be going strong, with the 'Mini Emma Army' in the masses.

"(It is) a phrase one American journalist used to describe the children who come to each show dressed as Emma," the spokeswoman said.

"She has become so popular that we had to create a range of Emma outfits and accoutrements from their ballet slippers to headbands.

"It's a sea of yellow and beautiful bows."

Get a wiggle on today and secure your seats when they go online at 2pm. /12/the-wiggles-rock-and -roll-preschool-tour.
