FIRST EVER GIG:
The Prodigy on the ‘Fat Of The Land’ tour ’97 @ Brighton Centre. I remember being completely torn between watching the screens or the band when they played ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ as they were playing the video on the big screens and it had been banned on most music channels so I hadn’t seen it. I subsequently watched the video during that song as decided I had the rest of the gig for the band, but they were amazing (big recommendations for a live band to see).
