OK, another gig by The Prodigy… I think, it’s the 10th time I’ve seen the live – stopped counting a while ago.
I was going to Warsaw fully hyped, hoping they would drop Rockweiler again! Well, I was recently lucky enough to hear all these ‘new’ tunes, like AWOL, Dogbite and Jetfighter live as I decided to kill two birds with one stone: visit the capitol (if possible) and see the band live at the same time. In this way, I heard the second version of AWOL dropped in Bratislava (I hope Liam will make something out it for the new LP cause this beat is a killer! Forget about Youtube videos, you had to be there to feel that energy!) and Dogbite in 2012. A two months later, I heard Jetfighter and AWOL (the first version) live at Orange Warsaw Fest 2012 and last year, in 2013, I heard Rockweiler for the first time at Balaton Sound Festival in Zamárdi, Hungary (speaking of which, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen. Food’s just great and people are so friendly… If you have a chance, visit Budapest – you will not regret it!).
However, when I arrived to Warsaw the first doubts started to lurk – heavy rain and horrible wind! Thanks to the latter a part of the stage settings (screen on the left side of the stage) collapsed a day before so a few shows were cancelled. I thought: ‘No fukkin way! It can’t happen!’ When it comes to rain, I had in mind their gig from Orange Fest 2012 when it was pissing down like hell so I was a bit of… worried.
When I reached the festival area the first thing that impressed me was the National Stadium – it’s HUGE! I heard that the acoustic inside the stadium was crap but The Prodigy fortunately were about the play at the second, ‘outdoor’ Warsaw Stage which apprently got rebuilt over the night.
