Review by Callum Main:
THE Prodigy are back.
The trio warned they were in attack mode and wow did they deliver.
A ferocious set of non-stop power, tracks designed to be performed live, delivered by an act that thrive on the energy of a packed crowd, creating what is likely one of the best gigs ever at the AECC.
However, the support set by American hip-hop legends Public Enemy could have easily been the main event itself.
Despite the majority of the group being in their mid-50s, they delivered a performance that many acts 30 years younger would struggle to compete with.
Flavor Flav and Chuck D performed tracks like Fight The Power with the same enthusiasm they would have done 25 years ago.
That, alongside a short solo set by the group’s DJ, DJ Lord, worked the crowd into a frenzy.
Dedicating their set to peace and paying tribute to those killed in the Paris and Mali attacks resonated well with the Aberdeen audience.
Prodigy fans are passionate, they crave high-impact music created out of passion – not out of a desire to sell albums and top charts.
In short – Aberdonians are Prodigy People.
And with the crowd promised an aggressive performance, it was up to Liam Howlett and Co to ensure they delivered.
Opening with Breathe, undoubtedly one of their most recognisable tracks from the past 20 or so years worked the AECC crowd into a frenzy that never faded.The unmistakable voices of Keith Flint and Maxim belted out iconic Prodigy hit after hit including Firestarter and Omen, all mixed flawlessly with tracks from their latest album, The Day Is My Enemy.
New tracks Nasty, Wild Frontier and Rok-Weiler were obviously still a bit too new for some of the audience who were instead much more familiar with some of Prodigy’s earlier works
But it was Voodoo People, Invaders Must Die and final track Take Me To The Hospital that got the loudest reaction from the thousands in the AECC as they jumped and sang in unison with Maxim and Flint.
Aberdeen was the first night on a packed winter tour schedule. I can only hope for the sake of other audiences throughout Britain that group can maintain this level of intensity.
