This Day One Year Ago, The Prodigy Played Final Show w/ 19 Songs

It's been almost a year since we lost eccentric icon Keith Flint, who not only was the frontman of historic UK electronic dance band The Prodigy, but also a dancer AND motorcycle racer. The talented artist passed away on March 4th, 2019.

The Prodigy plays an important role in music's historical timeline, as the band are credited as being the pioneers of the genre "big beat." Emerging in the early 1990s, Prodigy's innovative hits never faltered through the years, making it easy for them to succeed decade after decade, with seven studio albums under their belts.

Their last album, No Tourists, dropped in 2018, and Prodigy was wrapping the Australian leg of their tour in support of the release, when they played their last show ever on this day, February 5th, 2019 in Auckland, New Zealand at The Trusts Arena. Of course, they never planned for this to be their last show ever as they still had a massive tour ahead of them for the year.

The unprecedented final show with Flint featured a 19-song setlist that weaved in many beloved staples like "Breathe," "Voodoo People," and "Firestarter" along with songs off of No Tourists. They encored four songs, one being "Out of Space" but then they ended up abandoning the song before really getting it underway. Their last song was their hit "Smack My Bitch Up."

Peep their last setlist right here:

While Flint is deeply missed, this isn't the end of The Prodigy. The rest of the band plans on carrying out their legacy, as Liam Howlett posted on the band's Instagram in August 2019 that they were back in the studio making new Prodigy tunes. Check out that post below.

RIP Keith, who is gone but NEVER will be forgotten.
