The Prodigy invite fans to join Keith Flint’s funeral procession
The Prodigy fans have been invited to line the funeral procession route of late frontman Keith Flint this Friday 29th March.
On Twitter, Flint’s bandmates wrote that fans could line the funeral procession, which will be from 3pm in Braintree, Essex before a private church ceremony for friends and family at St Mary’s Church in Bocking.
Fans have been encouraged to “pay their final respects & ‘raise the roof’ for Keef,” the band wrote. “If anyone wishes to lay flowers or tributes these should be sent to St Mary’s church in Bocking, no later than 2pm Friday.”
“There will be speakers relaying the ceremony outside the church for everyone to hear,” they added.
News broke on Monday 4th March that Flint, the legendary rave trio’s iconic vocalist and dancer, had tragically died at the age of 49. A statement issued by his bandmates confirmed that he had died by suicide.
Since, innumerable tributes and odes have been seen around the world in honour of Flint. A petition was launched this month to erect a statue in tribute to him in the band’s hometown of Braintree.
London club The Cause has put together an 11-date fundraising tour of venues around the UK in tribute to Flint. 100% of money from the ticket sales will be donated to mental health charities such as Mind and CALM, and DJs and live acts who shared line-ups with The Prodigy over the years will play across the tour.
