The Wiggles Concert

Last night my wife took me and my son to “The Wiggles” Concert at the MCI Center in D.C. Much to my surprise, we had tons of fun. That was Joshua’s first concert of any kind. Seeing them on stage live was weird since I was used to watching them on TV. As soon as my son saw them come out he, along with the entire MCI Center, went totally nuts. He was clapping… he was yelling… he was cheering… he was crying… basically, the works. It was nice to see that he was having so much fun.

The best part of the concert was when one of The Wiggle sidekicks, Captain Feather Sword, put on a skit where he sang his trademark “Quack-Quack-Quack” song to the tune of the likes of Mic Jager, AC/DC, and Metallica among others. He impersonated them all extremely well.

Joshua loves watching “The Wiggles” at any time of the day. It doesn’t matter if its a DVD, a VHS, a music CD or someone humming one of their catchy tunes. I have to admit, most of the songs they sing are just that, extremely catchy. I hear the songs so much that I often find myself replaying the tunes in my head while at work, in the pooper, or while eating dinner. If you are a parent and are familiar with The Wiggles, you will agree that some of the songs are flat out hypnotic and mesmerizing. The funny thing is that the songs are often about simple topics that kids can relate to: sleeping, eating, and animals. Simple but effective.

The only thing that sucked was the ride into downtown D.C via the metro and the fact that we forgot our digital camera! And no, they didn’t sell any disposables in the arena.
