Hamilton News - - MUSIC -

The Prodigy are mak­ing a much-an­tic­i­pated re­turn to our shores and we have a dou­ble pass up for grabs for what promises to be an­other in­cen­di­ary per­for­mance!

With six of the big­gest and most in­flu­en­tial al­bums in mod­ern mu­sic to­day al­ready un­der their belt, The Prodigy have con­sis­tently proved to be one of the most thrilling live bands in the world! Vi­tal and vit­ri­olic, on stage The Prodigy are a snarling force to be reck­oned with, a ma­ni­a­cal beast of epic pro­por­tions.

Al­ways un­com­pro­mis­ing, The Prodigy’s in­flu­ence can be seen across gen­er­a­tions, turn­ing me­tal kids onto rav­ing and ravers into met­al­heads. The band put out genre de­stroy­ing record af­ter genre-de­fy­ing record and from the very start, The Prodigy were rene­gade rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies. Put sim­ply, The Prodigy are no tourists and never were.

They have sold 30 mil­lion records world­wide and have won nu­mer­ous mu­sic awards dur­ing their ca­reer, in­clud­ing two Brit Awards for Best Bri­tish Dance Act, three MTV Video Mu­sic Awards, two Ker­rang! Awards, five MTV Europe Mu­sic Awards and two Grammy Award nom­i­na­tions.

The Prodigy have clocked up a stag­ger­ing six No. 1 al­bums in the UK in­clud­ing 1994’s Mu­sic For The Jilted Gen­er­a­tion and 1997’s The Fat Of The Land.

Their lat­est of­fer­ing No Tourists has just been re­leased and con­tains some great sin­gles in Need Some1, Light Up The Sky, Fight Fire With Fire and We Live For­ever. Look out for these and other top Prodigy songs such as Breathe, Nasty, The Day Is My Enemy, Voodoo Peo­ple, Wild Fron­tier, Ev­ery­body In The Place and Firestarter at Trusts Arena.

“We are look­ing for­ward to bring­ing No Tourists live to New Zealand in 2019. Once again, time to bring the rukus!” said Liam Howlett (The Prodigy co-founder).
