Singer, songwriter, producer, rapper and all round king of the club banger, Example is set for a national UK tour and we’ve tickets to see him in live.
He’s playing cities all over the country but we’ve got tickets for Sheffield O2 Academy, on Saturday, November 8.
Guarantee your place - tickets are £30.93, and may be subject to a booking fee.
First comes the release of his new single, 10 Million People, on October 5.
The track has been taken from his top ten album Live Life Living, which is out now.
He said of the track: “10 Million People was written after watching a documentary on early 90’s rave culture. I found this video online where they were interviewing people at an illegal rave. The guy with the microphone said to one of the revellers “surely this whole rave thing is just a fad”.
“And the raver replied “well 10 million people can’t be wrong”. I wrote and produced the track in a day with Fraser T Smith. It’s my favourite song on the album and feels timeless for me. Right at the last minute I went back in and added a rap at the start just like I did on last single ‘One More Day’”
The live arena is where Example is a true master.
Renowned for his monstrous live sets, he is set to once again transform venues across the country in to colossal party scenes.
Announcing a tour taking him to 26 towns and cities later this year, he said: “I haven’t covered the UK properly for such a long time. The last two arena tours were superb but we missed some corners of the UK and a lot of people can’t travel hours to see a gig, especially on a week day. It’s a marathon tour, even for me but I’ve carefully chosen all the venues myself - some of which I’ve played in loads of time and others which I’ve never been to. Expect all the hits from the last 3 albums plus all the bangers and singles off album no.5 in a spectacular 90min show”
Tens of thousands of fans flocked to the main stage for Example’s incendiary set at V Festival in Chelmsford and Stafford – when he opened for US superstar Justin Timberlake – and hailed him a hero.
If that overwhelming reaction is anything to go by; they will be the hottest tickets in town for his 27-date UK tour in October and November this year.
