This time around, Prodigy will play Las Vegas (April 27) for the first time. The next night, the group takes on Coachella Music Festival’s main stage.

“Yeah, we’re looking forward to being back in America to do these shows and play a few new tracks from the forthcoming album because you must be bored with that nu-metal nonsense by now,” said keyboardist/programmer Liam Howlett.

Prodigy are expected to premiere material from their new album, which has Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned as is its working title.

With the departure of Leeroy Thornhill in 2000, Prodigy have recruited guitarist Alli of the group Fifth Amendment to help out on the shows.

Formed in the early ‘90s, Prodigy got their start as a local club favorite. They soon landed a record deal and their second single, “Charly,” was a big success on the U.K. charts. Their 1994 album, Music For The Jilted Generation, went gold within a week of its release and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

After extensive touring, Prodigy finally scored on American radio. Their next album, The Fat of the Land (1997) broke onto the charts at No. 1 in the U.K. and the States, making Prodigy the eighth British band (at the time) in history to enter the U.S. album charts in the top position.

Prodigy left the States on good terms with their last highly successful tour in 1998.
