A founding member of The Wiggles children’s entertainment group has been taken to hospital after collapsing at the end of their bushfire relief concert in Sydney.
Former Yellow Wiggle Greg Page, who performed in Sydney for an hour and a half with original Wiggles bandmates Anthony Field, Murray Cook, and Jeff Fatt, could be seen falling to the ground as he walked off stage on Friday night.
The incident occurred in front of a crowd of hundreds at Castle Hills RSL, with thousands more watching on live stream.
After a brief moment of confusion, Cook came back out to announce Page’s condition.
“Greg’s not feeling real well. I think he’s going to be OK. He’s not feeling real well,” Cook told the live audience.
“He’s going to be alright. We’ve got some medical attention.”
An encore performance of Hot Potato was carried out without Page.
The group’s Twitter account confirmed that Greg Page suffered a “medical incident” at the end of the show.
Tonight’s 18+ concert was the first of two planned with the original Wiggles line up, with another scheduled for Saturday night.
All proceed from the shows and livestream go towards the Red Cross Appeal and WIRES.
More to come.
