Prodigy

Isn’t it funny how some bands’ audience doesn’t age? I went to a Prodigy concert last Friday. They’ve been around since nineties and the main men must be close to middle age now but their fans are mostly pre-teens and teens. Most of the audience was too young to even remember the beginning of Prodigy. Made me feel kind of special:) Maybe it’s got to do with the fact that you’re supposed to move really fast to the rhythm of their songs, don’t know.

And then there are other bands whose fan community ages with them. Went to a Depeche Mode concert back in March. They’ve got 40-year olds coming to their concerts and knowing every single song by heart. Sure, they’ve got loads of young fans too, cause they keep on making hit songs and topping the charts. Respect!

For me there are some artists who I’ve only come to like later in my life, even though they’ve been around for a while, DM is one of them. Sting is another – he only captured my heart with his latest album and now I can’t wait for the next one. I wonder who’ll be my next discovery of the great performers who I’ve managed to avoid so far.
