Example with special guest Wretch 32
Saturday 21st April 2012
After announcing his first ever arena tour earlier this month, due to popular demand Example has added four additional shows including the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Saturday 21st April 2012.
It has been a killer year for Example as ‘Changed The Way You Kiss Me’ held the No.1 position in the UK charts for 2 weeks beating rock giants Coldplay to the top selling over 500K copies, now certified gold and ranked as one of the biggest selling singles of the year. His latest single ‘Stay Awake’ also topped the charts.
Example’s brand new No.1 gold album ‘Playing in the Shadows’ is a 12-track album of relentless monster tunes, all with killer pop choruses and huge dirty rave beats mixed with raw and candid lyrics. Once again Example has worked with the crème de la crème of the industry’s dance producers teaming up again with Chase and Status on the title track, Faithless who he toured with last year for ‘The Way’ and Nero on new single ‘Stay Awake’. Further production also comes courtesy of Funkagenda, Skream, Laidback Luke and Brookes Brothers to name a few.
Earlier this year he featured on the Wretch 32 No.2 smash ‘Unorthodox’ and Giggs’s ‘Look Over Your Shoulder’. He also bagged one of the biggest hype tracks of 2011 with the demon Skream collaboration ‘Shot Yourself in the Foot Again’ which received over 3.5 million YouTube views, climbed to #1 on HypeMachine and became a viral hit across the world.
The juggernaut that is Example LIVE wowed crowds at festivals all over country this summer including Glastonbury, Wireless, Lovebox, Big Chill, V2011, Creamfields and an iTunes headline to name a few. He also returned to the Balearic isle to headline Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks.
Not content with a sold out 17-date headline UK tour running throughout November and December his new arena tour takes him to some of the UK’s biggest venues including London’s The O2 and Manchester’s MEN next year.
