Review by Joel Wainwright:
THE prodigal sons of dance-metal have returned! On Saturday night The Prodigy brought the poison and the remedy to an Arena packed with the old and new generations of fans. And rather than merely an exposition of their latest album Invaders Must Die, this was an adrenaline-fuelled rush of the greatest hits from an exceptional back catalogue.
They kicked off with Invaders’ World’s On Fire – a track that sits comfortably among the pantheon of bass-line Prodigy classics. From then on a sea of uninhibited bouncing bodies sustained a vibe that swept through the crowd, creating a collective consciousness of rhythm and joy.
What the Prodigy certainly don’t have is a failure to communicate. Maxim is the mouthpiece. Tall and imposing, he bangs out the lyrics with a menace and ferocity that almost dares you not to have a good time.
Then there’s the inimitable Keith Flint – peroxide blond, ripped like a flyweight, and cheerfully antagonistic with his boundless energy and swagger. Behind it all is the genius Liam Howlett – a man surely born with a bass drum in his heart and notes running through his veins. He is mission control, with the keyboards, synths, and technical wizardry at his fingertips – the master of the music that creates cheers of delight when each massive tune kicks in.
Their Law, Voodoo People, Poison, Breathe, Diesel Power, Smack My Bitch Up, Firestarter – every one a masterpiece in it’s own way, every one an experience, or related to a memory of a sweaty nightclub somewhere in the mists of the 90s.
Having packed all that in, I do think an actual Prodigy stage presence of about 90 minutes was a little shy of what was required, but after support from Dizzee Rascal, and a 50-minute DJ set, I reckon most punters will say they got their money’s worth.
Even if it was only for the encore closing Out of Space, a track which anyone who’s been clubbing in the last twenty years must have danced to – and loved.
