You know things are getting real when our favourite kids’ band The Wiggles cancel their concerts due to Coronavirus fears.
Parents, who had secured tickets to the popular Fun and Games touring show were in turmoil whether they should still attend the events.
Well, the decision has been taken out of their hands as the Wiggles have released an announcement on their facebook page saying that they will be postponing the rest of the Sydney shows.

Ony Sydney For Now!
“As of today (13/03/20) we are only postponing the Sydney leg of the tour however we are closely monitoring the situation with Coronavirus (Covid-19) and advice provided by the Australian Government Department of Health. We are responding appropriately as the situation evolves and will provide further updates on our website with regards to the rest of the tour.”
“We will let you know the rescheduled Sydney show dates as soon as we can. All tickets purchased for the March dates will be honoured for the rescheduled dates. If you are unable to attend when the new dates are announced and wish to obtain a refund, please contact the venue you purchased tickets from.

This is obviously the most responsible action to take at this time, but there will still be hundreds of disappointed Wiggles fans out there.
