Flint tragically died by suicide in his Essex home in 2019 and is being honoured by the remaining The Prodigy members on the road.

The group will play Newcastle’s O2 City Hall on Monday, July 18 and then Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on Tuesday, July 19 as the dates keep coming thick and fast.
