Yes, the same The Prodigy of "Firestartef" and "Smack My Bitch Up" fame. Fun fact: I knew someone that thought the lyrics of that song were "take my picture" instead of "smack my bitch up," like, even years after that song was originally popular. I have no idea what she thought it was titled. Tickets are on sale now, for $45. Yes. $45. I don't know who they're kidding with that, either. It's not so ridiculous, though (but it is kinda ridiculous, sure), as even though The Prodigy might not have had the kind of hits lately that they did in the mid-'90s, they just released their latest album this month in the states (their first in five years!), Invaders Must Die--which hit No. 1 on the UK album charts. I saw the Prodigy at Coachella in 2002, and it was really pretty awesome, so seven years later, they are probably still similarly awesome.
