SECC, Glasgow, April 7

It may be three-and-a-half years since The Prodigy last played the SECC, but time away certainly hasn’t dented Glasgow’s enthusiasm for the band. Back to promote their No.1 album Invaders Must Die, the trio – Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim Reality – tonight put in the kind of incendiary display that fans have come to expect over the last 18 years.
From start to finish they were on blistering form, feeding off the torrents of energy unleashed by a crowd determined to savour every moment and dance at every opportunity. Even when new songs like Omen and Invaders Must Die didn’t quite hit the mark, the accompanying barrage of lights plus Flint’s ability to work a crowd into a frenzy ensured momentum wasn’t lost.
Not surprisingly it was their big-hitting singles that prompted euphoric scenes. Voodoo People, Breathe and Firestarter dazzled as the masses bounced and sang along, but ultimately it fell to Smack My Bitch Up to spark the most fevered response of a hugely entertaining night.
