    I'd rather see them headline on the main stage, personally. But I would definitely not object to a closing spot in the Sahara. I want to see them live at a festival, I'd rock myself straight out of my fucking skin.

    Like you know that ringing noise you get walking to your car after the last day of Coachella. You hear everyones voices talking and still a little bit of music. That should be Prodigy.

    In April while watching major lazer we were commenting on how much they reminded us of an early 90's prodigy show, then began pining away for another chance to see prodigy bring the evil. I support this thread!

    I dunno, I can't stand the Prodigy's awful screaming and yelping during live shows. I didn't think they were very good when they played the main stage in 02.

    I heard they sucked ass at Ultra when they played, I would be there without a doubt and hear they usually put on a great performance though so maybe Ultra was an off night.

    They sucked ass when I saw them in SF too.

    Prodigy can play the dome @ noon.

    I know their show can be a bit unorthodox and it sounds like they were tayloring the show to fit the venue, but when they were sucking that ass, how awesome were the lasers?

    There were no lasers. And no amount of lasers would save some dudes screaming over heavy metal electronic music.

    Yeah, I'd be a little let down too if I went to see a great Prodigy show and all they gave me is 2 hours of a San Francisco side show instead of lasers. Cheer up, It'll be better in the Sahara.

    at Ultra, their plane was late and Prodigy went straight from the runway to the stage and had not done a sound check or anything...

    That was 5 years ago though. I hear they've been killing it lately(last 2 years or so.)

    Perhaps Josh, Sophia, Forza, or Matt D. can chime in...

    Juan and I ended up leaving after 4 or 5 songs during their set on Sunday. It was really more of the crowds fault. EVERYONE WAS TALKING EVERYWHERE. The real kicker was when this girl pushed by me and asked who was playing. We just started laughing our asses off. They did sound good though from the little bit I did manage to hear clearly.

    I saw The Prodigy twice last year and they have indeed be "killing it" lately. The new tracks rock live and the classics are as great as ever.

    Honestly though, after seeing The Prodigy in Europe... I am not sure I would even bother seeing them again in North America. The energy in the performance I saw was out of this world. They got 30,000 to crouch down during the downtempo part of "Smack My Bitch Up" and when the bass and vocals kicked back, EVERYONE jumped up at the same time and went apeshit. Im getting goosebumps just thinking about. Someone also lit and emergency flare during "Warriors Dance" and there was like a tribal dance circle going on around it. Shit went crazy that night.

    this is why Prodigy worked better when they played the main stage in 2002 vs. playing the Sahara in 2005.

    No Marco. It's why old school dance acts can get away with that in Europe and not here in the states.

    Think back to Underworld playing before Radiohead up NYC back in 2008. I really don't want them playing to a crowd full of people just bobbing their heads, waiting for the headliner to come on (and if the average coachella crowd this past year was any indication, thats exactly what it would be like).

    The only EDM act that could (and should) play on the mainstage is Daft.

    Prodigy should not play on a stage before another act. They should play in the dance tent. MAYBE they could close out the outdoor theatre, but they are much much MUCH more suited for closing the Sahara.

    And again, if you dont believe me, go look up YT videos of Underworld's set at APW. That's what it would be like if they did the mainstage.

    And their material has always worked better live. Also, their shows in 2002 are nothing like they are now. The shows I saw in 2009 were full of energy and fucking rocked. The new material was absolutely insane live.

    I support this thread.

    Actually, I don't think they would work at the mainstage at all at this point.

    Prodigy closing the Outdoor. Now that sounds like an excellent idea to me.
