Three members of the children’s music quartet the Wiggles (left) will be hanging up their colorful outfits this year, with the Blue Wiggle the lone original member left dancing. Jeff Fatt (in purple), Murray Cook (red) and Greg Page (yellow) will leave after a tour ends in the group’s native Australia in December, the band said in a statement Thursday. The trio will take on backstage, creative roles. Replacements have been chosen to join Anthony Field, who helped found the group in 1991. The three departing members want to spend more time with their families, Cook said in the statement, adding, “It’s important that we plan for the future so that the Wiggles can keep wiggling in the years to come.”
