Brace yourselves: The Prodigy to perform trilogy of shows at Manchester’s Warehouse Project

By Tim Hyde

One of the most influential bands of the modern era will return to Manchester tonight in order to complete a back-to-back-(to-back) trilogy of shows at the Warehouse Project.

Crowds at Manchester’s premier will gather to watch an epic night of electro-punk which can only be described as a thumping brew of rhythmic provocation.

Very few  bands can claim that they have created a string of anthems, but The Prodigy aren’t just any band, songs such as Firestarter, Omen and Smack my Bitch up are considered modern day classics.

Witnessing The Prodigy live is an incredible onslaught of noise and strobe lights, which creates a boisterous atmosphere that the band thrives in.

There are few bands that have ever matched The Prodigy for power, as their performances cause the venues to tremble uncontrollably.

As well as success on the stage The Prodigy’s records often fly of the shelves, their album, ‘Invaders Must Die’, was an unexpected triumph and sold more than 200,000 copies within two weeks.

The group have won numerous music awards throughout their career, including two Brit Awards and have also been nominated for two Grammy awards.

The Prodigy, who originated in Essex, are some of the most vibrant performers the music world has ever seen.

The band began in the early 90s and has built a reputation for being one of the best live acts around as they consistently galvanise crowds with their chaotic stage bravado.

The band have always appealed to the masses and are putting on three nights of bedlam at Manchester’s Warehouse Project – December 18,19 and 20.

The venue can expect a complete mix of fans over the next three days, as the Essex boys attract an abstract mix of supporters from across the country. 

The ‘big-beat’ band has had supreme success for more than two decades selling in excess of 25million records worldwide.

The Prodigy’s unmistakable melodies and funky beats will continue to blast through dance music lovers stereos for years to come.
