THE Prodigy performed at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on November 9, 2018.

The Prodigy first rose to international success in 1992, and have produced number one albums since, developing a big live following and crossing genres in their unique festival performances.

Now internationally touring with their latest number one album, the band played Cardiff on the British leg of their No Tourists tour.

As the arena started to fill up, with a sell-out crowd, Los Angeles hip hop punk rockers, Ho99o9, took the stage as support, thrashing out big beats,with heavy guitar and explosive punk vocals, they certainly revved the crowd and set the mood, with a hardcore fast energy performance.

The lights set down and the curtain to The Prodigy's stage set was assisted at the bottom, by their own personal staff, due to the sheer weight and magnitude of the curtain.

This revealed a full No Tourists album cover purpose built stage set and there was a roar as the crowd went wild.

Guitarist, Rob Holiday, and drummer, Leo Crabtree, smiled and waved at the audience as they took their positions, closely followed by Keith, Maxim and Liam. The band wasted no time, smoothly moving into a beat filled melody of Breathe which had the crowd immediately bouncing and dancing, tossing their plastic pint holders in the air.

Liam's hands raised between masterful hooks and break beats, with Keith and Maxim dancing around the large set, encouraging the crowd who loved their powerful stage presence and vocal performances.

Roaring, wild revellers applauded insanely, as they smoothly moved into Resonate and Nasty.

Following this with Omen, The Prodigy brought the rave to Cardiff; the arena felt more like a festival. There were people being helped over the front bar, slam dancing, some moshing and a crowd that jumped and sang along to decades of much loved tunes.

The set continued with an electric reception to Voodoo People and many other hits, including relentless energy from the band.

The fresh new Light Up The Sky really kept everyone grooving, singing, and dancing, followed up with the timeless No Good (Start The Dance).

There was also a massive encore of We Live For Ever, Their Law and Hospital.

This was an excellent show, sourcing from a wealth of nearly three decades of hits and albums.

As I left the show, a No Tourists tour hoodie wearing fan said it best: "There's The Prodigy and there's The Prodigy live; they never let me down."
