On their first tour of duty in 1996, thanks to killer tracks like Voodoo People, THE PRODIGY were the big thing on the dance floor, at a time when beats were on the verge of getting big, breakbeats were breaking out and rockers were just waking up to the power of rave. Poison (“I got the poison! I got the remedy!”) had been absolutely huge for the past year, and Firestarter was on the verge of dropping, and we all know what happened after that…

Only one year later, they were back. By now, classic single Breathe had made Keith Flint one of the unlikeliest household names in pop, Maxim’s growl and mad eyes were the stuff of instant recognition, and Liam Howlett was the most innovative figure in electronica. Their third album, The Fat of the Land, wasn’t far off either (and destined for double platinum status Down Under).

In February of this year, the Prodigy was cited as one of the five most important acts to come out of the United Kingdom in the last 50 years by Q magazine and we can’t help but agree with them.

In the country again since their last tour viva down under in 2002 The Prodigy are set to hit the Big Day Out tour circuit and for those not lucky enough to have secured a ticket to see them there or just the really dedicated fans who keep hanging in there for more there will be side shows!

The Prodigy plays the Brisbane Riverstage Tuesday 20th January.
With special guests Simian Mobile Disco and Hot Chip (DJ) don’t miss one of the most energetic and exciting live performances you may ever have the pleasure of enduring.
The tickets are limited and just like a Firestarter they’re hot hot hot!
