The Prodigy paid tribute to the late Keith Flint while playing ‘Firestarter’ in London last night (July 21) – check out the fan-shot footage below.
Yesterday, The Prodigy paid tribute to Flint during the first of three consecutive headline dates at the O2 Academy Brixton in south London.
“He’s still-fucking-with us right now,” Maxim told the crowd towards the end of ‘Firestarter’. “He’s still here! Mr Flint fucking lives on in here!”
The performance of the 1996 hit single saw The Prodigy beam a laser outline of the late singer on stage that moved in time to the music. Maxim, meanwhile, stood still with his arms crossed behind his back as a mark of respect.
According to Setlist.FM, the latest airing of ‘Firestarter’ included an outro that incorporated Andy C’s remix of the classic tune. You can watch the footage here:

Announcing their live comeback in March, The Prodigy said in a statement: “We can’t wait to get back onstage to play our tunes for the people again. The 25th anniversary of [third album] ‘Fat Of The Land’ felt like the right time for us to step up.
