The Wig­gles cause stir, MECC con­cert packed to rafters

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

LIT­TLE Briella Meikle was over the moon when her par­ents took her to see The Wig­gles at Mackay En­ter­tain­ment and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre (MECC).

Dressed in a spe­cially made Dorothy the Di­nosaur cos­tume, the two-year-old could not con­tain her ex­cite­ment on the drive to the packed show on Thurs­day.

Her fa­ther Grant Meikle said his daugh­ter had been look­ing for­ward to the con­cert for weeks.

“We had the tick­ets on the fridge and she’s been look­ing and point­ing to them for a while,” he said.

“She watches The Wig­gles on TV and al­ways comes and gets me from the shed to come and have a dance with her.”

Briella’s favourite char­ac­ters are Dorothy the Di­nosaur and Emma, the yellow Wig­gle. When Emma came on stage Briella’s face lit up.

“She was danc­ing and do­ing all the hand move­ments and hav­ing a great time. For the first part of the show she was glued to her mums legs be­cause of all the kids, but she loos­ened up pretty quickly,” Mr Meikle said.

Mr Meikle said his daugh­ter had loved The Wig­gles since she was just one-year-old and was one of hun­dreds of fans who en­joyed the con­cert.

“It was ac­tu­ally a re­ally great show. I liked how in­ter­ac­tive they were with the kids,” he said.

As for Briella, all of the danc­ing and ex­cite­ment was enough for one day. She fell asleep on the drive home.
