What words can I say about this gig, amazing, mind blowing, electrifying? How about all of them and so much more. The Prodigy is one of the most well-known electronic music bands and has been around since the 90’s. The Prodigy played at the SOLD OUT show in Glasgow o2 academy; they first came out to a roaring screams from their entire warrior fans kicking of the show with “OMEN” from the Album Invaders Must Die which was their fifth album released back in 2009. This show was the fourth of eight pre-Christmas shows

Keith Flint looked like demon on the stage dancing around encouraging his fans to dance and mosh with the band and believe me, the fans did not disappoint. The crowd were on fire wanting more from the prodigy playing there older songs “fire starter”, “voodoo people” to their newer material from their new seventh album out next year . The crowd consisted of waves and mosh pits to the amazing shouting here we, here we, here we f**king go.

Maxim engaged with the whole arena between songs, he decided to take a wee wander through the front crowd to get to know his warrior fans getting all the them all down on the ground during “smack my bitch up” which was their final song before going in to the encore. The lighting for the show was out of this world with the flashing lights changing colour and speed with the beat of the songs, Keith and Maxim had outlandish coloured microphones to go with the explosive atmosphere of the stage, so even through the smoke and lights you could track the movement of the band.

The Prodigy played their encore which consisted of three songs all together ending with “Take Me to the Hospital”. All in this entire gig was electrifying, with old fans of the prodigy dating back 20 years, to new fans just shows you , that the prodigy are of the most energetic live band still to this very day.
