The Wiggles have long been children's music icons ...

And if you grew up watching the original group featuring Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt and Greg Page on TV, we've got some exciting news for you!

The original group are coming back to New Zealand for two adults-only reunion performances.

The last time the four reunited on stage, the show sold out in just minutes.

And the Wiggles promise to bring back some of their best-loved songs along with appearances from the iconic Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog, Dorothy the Dinosaur and Henry the Octopus.

But instead of bringing the kids along, you'll have to get a babysitter for this one - the shows are restricted to those aged 15 and over.

According to Purple Wiggle Fatt, these shows are for the Kiwi kids of the '90s who grew up watching them on screen.

"All of those children who loved The Wiggles in the '90s are now adults who love the nostalgia and fun from that time in their lives," he says.

"This night is for the grown-ups and is a chance to bring back some of that genuine, high-spirited liveliness again. We can't wait to relive those childhood memories and dance the night away to some of the favourite old-school tunes."

Original Red Wiggle Murray Cook jokes that the four will have a bit more grey hair than the last time we saw them, adding: "And there's a bar!"

Tickets go on sale on June 14.
