Example set for 26-date tour to mark his latest singleBy Editor
Example is a anomaly: he can sing, he can write, he can rap, he can produce and most importantly, he's capable of making a club classic.
And as he is set to release his brand new single '10 Million People' from his fifth studio album 'Live, Life, Living,’ the Fulham-born artist is commencing a mammoth tour of the UK, starting on 17th of October at the North Wales Arena.
Speaking of his inspiration for his new track, he said: "Ten 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 revelers "surely this whole rave thing is just a fad.” And the raver replied "well ten 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'"
Some may be a little worried about performing in the large arenas that Example sets to fill, but a man of his talent will be unfazed, because his live sets have become his forte over the years. As he takes on a massive 26 cities and towns across Britain, he has explained
In regards to the massive itinerary of 26 towns and cities, 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 90 min show."
We can't wait to get on board, can you?
