Example with special guests Benga Live, P Money and Micky Slim - Additional tickets released


  • Date: Saturday 16th February 2013
  • Doors Open: 7.30pm
  • Pricing: £25.00

‘‘Euphoric in sound yet lyrically bittersweet, it’s an intriguing premise played out brilliantly’ - Q

“Example showed why he is one of the dance scene’s biggest live draws.” – The Times

“Example’s brand of rave-pop has risen to become the biggest, loudest sound in the UK” – NME


Following a massive sold out tour in 2012, Example announces new headline arena dates that will see him kicking off 2013 in style. The huge 16-date tour will follow the release of brand new single ‘Say Nothing’, taken from his third studio album ‘The Evolution of Man’ out later this year.  Returning to the Metro Radio Arena on Saturday 16th February 2013.

It’s been an incredible year for Example live, in April he played a 14-date UK arena tour rivalling that of his stadium-size rock contemporaries.  This summer he maintained his stranglehold on the world of Electronica with 12 shows in Ibiza spending the summer months on the road playing a plethora of festivals across the UK and Europe including T in the Park, Wireless, Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and Benicassim to name a few to rave reviews.

Live fans should prepare for a huge show, with killer Example production and a succession of monster hits from ‘Watch The Sun Come Up’ and ‘Kickstarts’ to last year’s No.1 smash hits ‘Stay Awake’ and the massive ‘Changed The Way You Kissed Me’ as well as the recently released ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’ feature with Calvin Harris, ‘Say Nothing’ and more brand new tunes.

There is no rest for man of the moment Example, new single ‘Say Nothing’ is produced by DJ Dirty South and is an anthemic stadium filler, laced with a hooky guitar riff and signature Example killer chorus. This track is a destined radio smash; overflowing with Example’s classic lyrical prowess.

Ministry of Sound will release ‘Say Nothing’ on the 16th September with an array of A-list remixes courtesy of TC, Roska, Burns, Foamo and Hardwell. The album ‘The Evolution of Man’ will be released on 18th November.

Please note tickets are limited to 8 per person.
