Spoiler alert

First Setlist/Concert was short as fuck, but that was expected because every show of them i see before was mostly less than 90min. This time it was near 90min.
Breathe was the intro and it is a nice intro for my opinion. Because of the alcohol I forgot most of the setlist after breathe, but I can say that the oldest song they've played was "Everybody is in the place", which is was the only song from Experience. Oh, and they played the Pendulum Remix of Voodoo People.

I can so much relate. This is the exact same reason why I skipped the 2015 live show even though it was 70km from my place. Back then I just checked the setlists from days earlier and (disliking "Days of My Enemy") decided not to go. My friend (with who I went for The Prodigy also in 2009) went there and confirmed that it sucked.

But... I regret not going :D
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

how was it?

Well...meh OK.

To elaborate (cause Toxic and I had a big discussion afterward):
I am a bit jealous of the peeps who've been to the Frankfurt gig where they played 7 (!!!) of the 10 tracks of the new No Tourists album. We got 6, in total 20 were played in about 80 minutes. Which is the big problem with a Prodigy gig nowadays.
So a Prodigy gig is something you go to once a year (hopefully) as a sort of anger management course. It's like Limb Bizkit's "Break Stuff". Every aggression, every BS at work, every spouse problem can be expressed on the dancefloor, in the moshpit. You get bruised, wet (sweat or beer), a broken phone or what not, and you will leave smiling.
The trouble is all the tracks have lost there impact. Do you remember hearing Out of space for the first time? Or Voodoo People or Firestarter? Even the songs (see how I say "songs", remember that) from the IMD era onward even had an impact on me when the first were released and the first time I heard them live. It was a new experience.
Now my biggest complain of the No Tourist album is the length. With 10 songs in 34 minutes, I called this album "a good collection of live tracks". They could have easily played 8 tracks and still have had an hour of live show to fill.
And there lies the problem of the latest Prodigy concerts. Liam doesn't play tracks anymore, Everything he plays is cut short. Even the 3,5 minute No Tourists songs. Opener Breathe; loses a verse, Firestarter; loses a verse, TDIME; cut short, Need Some1; cut short (yeah, it's possible), even the beloved Timebomb Zone as the latest single as the final track; cut short.
It's so frigging cool to hear Everybody in the place and/or Fire. And yes, of course, those don't have the same impact being almost 30-year-old songs but roll with it. Play them out brave and proud. And we need they big come down tracks. Remember Skylined? Or Climbatize? Seen the Weather Experience footage on the "Worlds of fire" bluray? Give the crowd that "recharge with hands in the air" moment.
But you see it happen from IMD onward. The band is making songs: Omen, Colours, Wolves, Wild Frontier, Roadblox, Nasty, Light up the sky, We live forever. I don't hate or dislike these but if you play this kind of songs or shortened versions of earlier tracks the show becomes song, setup for next, song, setup for next, song. And in the latest songs, especially from the No Tourists album, almost all tracks got 20 seconds beats followed by a 40 seconds drop. It's running, pausing, running pausing constantly.
Now I didn't dislike the show. It was a good Prodigy gig with over half of the new album played. And there still is no other band as energetic as The Prodigy. Just lose Wolves and play Firestarter full on, or better, the other way around. Don't do the sit down during Smack anymore, let people experience that drop in their own way. (In all fairness Maxim said: "I am not going to say a word" and there was no sit down where I was standing.)
 I remember Liam saying in an old interview (TFOTL, AONA era) that The Prodigy is an act, not a band. But nowadays with the live guitar, drums and Keith and Maxim being vocalists (I don't dare say "singers"), I guess they are a band. And I'm sad to say one that does not work for me anymore at festivals or arenas. But with the next club tour, I'll be there again. And when Liam one day will kill the band I have high hopes there could be a 70 minutes album with 8 atmospheric tracks.
