One day for the Prodigy in Athens, in Tae Kwon Do

Two days become one and PRODIGY will ultimately be in Athens on September 17 at the Faliro Indoor Olympic Venue of Tae Kwon Do.

When a few months ago, the day of EJEKT Festival I saw on the video wall that PRODIGY will come back I was glad indeed. I had not seen them last time in Agios Kosmas, at the Rockwave of 1999 and I would love to see one of the bands,  whom I "danced"  my student years to...

The area of "Athens Arena" sounded strange initially, perhaps because it has not been held relevant concert there (only two years ago at Ayo's anniversary of  Kosmos Festival). However, the place has very good audio (it is an indoor  and well thought-out space also) and maybe it suited a band with not an easy  sound in concert ...

Tickets for the first day (09/17) vanished very quickly, like those of the second, announced a few days after the first sold-out . Rightly so moved by the organizers and added one more day. Yes we know that was not enough ... Yes we know that there are still people who want to see the Prodigy live and never had a chance to buy tickets.

For these reasons therefore Detox decided to ask the band to turn the two days in one and  move the concert to Faliro Indoor Olympic - Tae Kwon Do . I visited the site four times, as I recall ... The Jean Michel Jarre concert had a very good sound admittedly! This year´s EJEKT, last year´s  Coca Cola Soundwave with Primal Scream, Bloc Party and Morrissey years ago didn't exactly have the best of sounds.

Prodigy So yes, it is disappointing for many who wanted to see the band in a venue with good sound. Yes, in the venue with the good sound system  good sound
can be produced. Will it happen, though? Let's see ... we will be there indeed and we will inform you in Mix Grill "minute by minute" and Twitter for everything we see and hear.

At present, it is good to know that a few more tickets are
issued and reasonably in 1 to 2 days they will have been sold out and two appearances of PRODIGY in Greece (Athens and Thessaloniki). So those who have not had the time the past few days, let's hurry ...

Finally, as you will see the following press release, those who have tickets for 16/09 and do not want to see the concert or have bought for both days, may redeem their ticket until Wednesday.

PS: The reason given by the Prodigy below for this change is for technical reasons of the "Athinon Arena "..... ..............
