They will join the likes of AC/DC, Dame Joan Sutherland, Olivia Newton John, Johnny O’Keefe, Paul Kelly, John Farnham, INXS, Slim Dusty and Jimmy Little.

Dr Kylie Minogue OBE has recorded 11 studio albums since 1987, she has had nine perfumes and a range of homewares distributed as ‘Kylie Minogue at home’.

The Wiggles started out as the rock band The Cockroaches in the 1980s and by 2003 as The Wiggles managed to sell-out 12 Madison Square Garden shows.

Murray Cook, the red Wiggle, said, “It’s quite amazing to us that we’ve been together 20 years! We thought in the beginning we’d record a one off album. We had no thoughts of it being a career and here we are still going strong and still really enjoying it. It’s an amazing milestone for us because we didn’t think there would be one year, let alone 20! When I heard that we were to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame I looked up past recipients and read a virtual roll call of all the bands and artists that I grew up watching and listening to. It is quite overwhelming to think that we will be given the enormous honour of joining that company”.

The ARIA Awards will take place at Allphones Arena in Sydney on November 27 at 7.30pm.
