The Prodigy World’s On Fire Released this week CD/DVD & CD/Blu-Ray
“We put a lot into choosing the songs. We wanted to keep the energy going but still wanted to play stuff from every period of The Prodigy. People would expect stuff like ‘Firestarter’ and what have you, but we wanted a few surprises in there too. We did ‘Weather Experience’ and had those lasers in the show as a respect back to the early rave era."
“That day was very special and we’re proud of it “ Liam Howlett

" Nothing can prepare you for the sheer ferocity of The Prodigy" *****Kerrang!
“If there’s only one band you see this decade, look no further” Q
"Vulgar, garish and perfectly old skool…as incendiary as ever…,The Prodigy are the kings of this shit " NME
"A warrior's dance of epic proportions…Not a single stationary body in the audience" 9/10 Rock Sound
“A lot of thought went into the place where we could throw the best party, we never wanted the typical stadium venue so Milton Keynes Bowl was perfect for our first ever UK Warrior’s Dance Festival coz it felt like a mad party in a field. The night was massive for us. It was important to us to bring a proper festival day and night for the people to remember and bring the same intense atmosphere like when we play Brixton Academy.... and it was. Standing on that stage was a truly triumphant feeling for us as the whole place kicked off, we looked out and we were fukin proud……
We never intended to do a live DVD, but when we saw the footage we knew it had to be done…and born out of that we realised we had a great live album too!” Liam, Keef & Maxim….(The Prodigy)
With the audio for the DVD & Blu Ray versions having been engineered by Liam Howlett himself in 5.1 surround sound it’s a chance to re-live that feeling of standing in the crowd all over again or witnessing their blistering performance for the first time.
The release will be a chance for fans to see brand new and re-worked footage of the band including films taken on the road during their ‘Invaders Must Die’ world tour – see the boys in Brazil, Japan, America and of course select performances taken from their explosive tours in the UK and Europe.
There’s also some exclusive gallery photos to explore and some hidden extras which you’ll have to navigate an interactive menu to find!
Directed by award winning director Paul Dugdale, the MKB footage was devised with heavy input and direction from the band throughout.
