Example announces October/November UK tour (2014)

Example

Story by Jack Foley

SINGER, songwriter, producer and occasional rapper Example has announced a massive UK tour for October and November 2014.

The performer will visit 26 towns and cities later this year, in support of his top 10 album, Live Life Living, which is out now. In addition, he will also release the new single, 10 Million People, on October 5.

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”

Commenting on the single, he continued: “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‘.”
