The Prodigy are set to play Newcastle’s O2 Academy tonight (May 5), in what could be their last ever gig in the region.

The legendary group has announced they may have to retire because of “the realities of age.”

The group are famed for their huge hits Breathe and Firestarter and first came together in 1990. Made up of Liam Howlett, Maxim and Keith Flint, the group is well known for their high tempo shows.

Despite being described as electronic, their music deviates between rave, hardcore techno, industrial, jungle and breakbeat meaning they appeal to a wide audience.

The extremely popular group will play the Academy on the May 4 as part of their The Day Is My Enemy tour, promoting their new album.

The album, which has already hit the number 1 spot in the UK charts, could also be the last that the group release.

Tickets are already sold out for what should be an amazing night.
