The Prodigy brought their No Tourists tour to a SOLD-OUT Brighton Centre on Monday 5th November, bouncing on stage later than planned – Not that the crowd cared one bit.

The band brought their own versions of fireworks to bonfire night, in the form of a spectacular light show fronted by both Maxim Reality and Keith Flint. Completed by Liam Howlett on keys the trio will celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2020. The Prodigy is joined on tour with their live members Leo Crabtree and Rob Holiday adding drums and guitar respectively.

Starting with the 1997 hit Breathe the crowd were instantly jumping around – this band have turned ravers into metalheads and metalheads into ravers over the years. Remaining with the same electronic sound throughout. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it attitude continues throughout their tour. Yes, they do change their setlist around ever so slightly each night, but it does keep the crowd guessing what is next. The crowd were just as happy with the new songs We Live Forever and Light Up the Sky from the recent No Tourists album but they got more energetic with the classic hits such as Everybody in the Place, Nasty and of course Firestarter.

Finishing with Take Me To The Hospital from the 2009 album Invaders Must Die, The Prodigy rounded off a brilliant evening with strobe lights that kept them going and kept the crowd as upbeat with the music, the beer was flying along with the odd crowd surfer in the mosh pit. It was a tremendous show that will be remembered by many of the crowd for a long time yet.
