All Eyes on The Prodigy – Live Glasgow – Words and Pictures Brian Anderson
Seems like a lifetime ago that keyboardist and songwriter Liam Howlett met Keith Flint at a party in 1989 in Essex England.
Not long after the famous meet Flint and Howlett were joined by vocalist MC Maxim and also a female dancer and singer called Sharky who was a very good friend of Keith Flint, the first line up and the Legend of the Prodigy was born.
They release their debut studio album Experience 1992 which was loved by the ravers and clubbers of the day.
The big time was beckoning in 1997 with the next album release called Fat Of The Land, with the mega monster smash single and worldwide hit Firestarter which now fused punk, with a new Keith Flint emerging with a Johnny Rotten-esque vibe with huge beats and dance, the Prodigy went on to headline Glastonbury that year and go on to sell millions of records and go on to receive many awards and accolades.
On Friday night Glasgow and the Secc the Prodigy kick off their seventh album No Tourists which was the opener on the new tour. Keith Flint, Maxim and Howlett were tearing the roof off the sellout crowd.
The lads powered their way through the 19 setlist, explosive and aggressive as any you would expect from raves royalty. It was intoxicating and the atmosphere euphoric, the Glasgow crowd went nuts for every beat, through the new songs and the classic Prodigy hits of the 90s.
Glasgow Eyes was also granted access to the pit and bring you pictures by Brian Anderson from the first show going all over the world including Australia in 2019.
The Prodigy remain one of the most amazing and energetic live acts of all time.
