Bow down, techno lords The Prodigy have announced that they will be hitting Australian shores for a headline tour in early 2019.
The tour will be off the back of their latest album release, No Tourists that hits the airwaves on 2nd November. The album is lucky number 7 in their discography, and the latest since Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim gave us The Day Is My Enemy in 2015.
For those fans who were disappointed after the 2016 Soundwave cancellation in which the trio were scheduled to perform, today is your lucky day.
“No Tourists’ is ultimately about escapism and the want and need to be derailed and not to follow that easy set path,’ explains Liam Howlett in his North London studio. ‘In these times we live in people have become lazier and forgotten how to explore. Too many people are allowing themselves to be force fed, with whatever that may be. It’s about reaching out further to find another alternative route where the danger and excitement may be to feel more alive… not accepting that you can just be a tourist. That’s what the title is about for us.”
The Prodigy are hitting Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, just in time for you to get over your New Year’s hangover in January and February.
Supported by Australian legends DJ Enschway and DJ Shockone, it is bound to get loud. “We are looking forward to bringing No Tourists live to Australia in 2019,” says Howlett. “Once again, time to bring the ruckus!”
