The music community was dealt with another incredible loss on March 4 with the untimely passing of The Prodigy’s Keith Flint. As part of the group’s first North American tour in a decade, they were scheduled to appear at all four of the spring festivals from Danny Wimmer Presents, including Welcome To Rockville, Epicenter, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival and Chicago Open Air Presents.
Festival producers regret to announce that The Prodigy has had to cancel their appearances in the wake of Flint’s passing, with their festival spot being filled by the following artists:
The Crystal Method: Welcome To Rockville (May 3; Jacksonville, FL) and Epicenter (May 10; Rockingham, NC)
Papa Roach: Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival (May 18; Columbus, OH)
The Cult: Chicago Open Air Presents (May 19; Bridgeview, IL)
"We’re honored to step in for our brothers in The Prodigy at Sonic Temple on Saturday night,” says Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “They are such an influential band for us. We’re gonna celebrate, it's gonna be a great night. We love you guys and we CAN'T WAIT to see you out there.”
