Australia s Wiggles flag major changes to line-up.
The four-man singing and dancing outfit, famed for their colourful turtlenecks and celebrating 21 years on the road this year, were preparing to unveil a major shake-up on the weekend, Fairfax newspapers reported.
"They always said they d have to hang up their boots at some point," the band s manager said when asked whether some members were retiring.
First formed in 1991, The Wiggles are a global children s phenomenon, achieving huge success with their albums, videos, television series and concert appearances.
They are among the highest-paid figures in Australian entertainment.
The band welcomed founding Yellow Wiggle Greg Page back into its ranks in January, five years after he retired due to illness and was replaced by understudy Sam Moran.
All the original members are getting on in age, with the oldest Jeff Fatt almost 60.
Their management was not immediately available for comment but the band were due to announce the changes to their line-up at a press conference on Sunday, according to the reports.
