The Wiggles like you’ve never seen them before! Children’s group land the cover of Rolling Stone magazine

Iconic children’s group The Wiggles have landed their first Rolling Stone cover.

Members Tsehay Hawkins, Anthony Field, Lachy Gillespie and Simon Pryce swap their trademark skivvies for edgy ensembles as they grace the September issue of the Australian and New Zealand masthead.

New Yellow Wiggle Tsehay Hawkins also makes history in being the youngest person at age 16 to appear on the local cover.

The cover image sees the group trade in their skivvies for edgy ensembles, while an inside shot sees them performing one of their signature dance moves.

For their September cover story, The Wiggles allowed Rolling Stone unprecedented access to their recent Australian arena tour as well as their Hot Potato Studios in Sydney, where they worked on new music and rehearsed a brand new TV show. 

Print editor of Rolling Stone AU/NZ Jake Challenor said of the iconic cover: ‘Just like Rolling Stone, The Wiggles have stood the test of time. Here is a band that, for three decades, has entertained and inspired future generations.

‘The last two years have been some of their best in history. The Wiggles are more relevant than ever, which is exactly why pop culture icons like Lil Nas X and The Kid Laroi are embracing them. 

‘Without a doubt, 2022 is officially the Year of The Wiggles.’ 

The Wiggles proved they were at their best in January when they topped Triple J’s annual Hottest 100 list for 2021 with their cover of Tame Impala’s psychedelic 2012 hit, Elephant. 

Placing second was The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber for their 2020 hit, Stay.

Rounding out the rest of the top five was Spacey Jane’s Lots of Nothing, Olivia Rodrigo’s Good 4 U, and Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever. 

The Wiggles had long been tipped to take out the top spot in the annual music list, which is voted for by the Australian public.

‘It’s an absolute spin-out,’ Blue Wiggle Anthony Field told the Sydney Morning Herald at the time.

‘It’s not something we ever thought would happen. But we really did do the song out of love.’

The band made headlines again in June when they joined The Kid Laroi on stage at one of his Melbourne shows for his End of The World tour (pictured)
