The Prodigy have canceled all their upcoming shows after band member Keith Flint committed suicide a few days ago despite fans hoping for a tribute.
Fans hoped for a tribute show at Glastonbury Festival, thinking the band would play in memory of their frontman who was found in his Essex home on Monday after having committed suicide. However, the band has decided to cancel the show as well as the other upcoming performances they had lined up.
The band’s official statement from Liam Howlett and Maxim reads, “Following the tragic death of Keith Flint all forthcoming Prodigy shows will be canceled with immediate effect.”
They also wrote, “It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator, and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.”
Sex Pistols front-man John Lyndon also spoke up about Flint’s passing, telling TMZ, “My heart is broken for him. He was a good friend of mine… Nobody loved him and he was left alone and he got destroyed. Why? Why do so many people in this industry be left alone (sic)? We are not looking after each other anymore, and we should. Any other of you out there who need help, come talk to me… We do not need to die (sic).”
Flint was only 49-years-old at the time of his passing.
