Example to support Lily Allen for winter 2009 UK/ Ireland tour

Posted: 26th October 2009

Following a series of his own live dates, Example has met his match and is about to join the UK's mouthiest and biggest female superstar Lily Allen as the headline support on her UK tour.

The seventeen-date UK tour kicks off in Sheffield on 16th November and runs through to 17th December at London's Brixton Academy.

Example burst onto the scene earlier this year with the release of the demonic club track 'Hooligans' and went onto to dominate the summer with the smash hit 'Watch The Sun Come Up' leading The Guardian to label him 'a brilliant pop tinged superstar in the making'.

Live, Example's energy is limitless and his show is a no holds barred performance - his raps are razor sharp and his newfound love of all things pop comes through with killer choruses in tracks like the single 'Watch The Sun Come Up' and the Calvin Harris produced 'Time Machine'. Fans will also be treated to a sneak preview of new single 'Won't Go Quietly' and hear some Example classics like 'Me & Mandy' and 'Dirty Face' as well as the most recently released and totally deviant 'Hooligans' which earned Example the tag of 'dysfunctional electro pop sensation' by the NME.

Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw, Annie Mac, Judge Jules, Jo Whiley, Chris Moyles, Sara Cox and Pete Tong at Radio 1 all sing his praises, and Pete invited Example out to Ibiza this summer to perform on his live show with other specially invited guests Florence and the Machine and Pendulum, Zane also asked him to do a live PA during his show at Eden.

Example releases his new single 'Won't Go Quietly' next year, on 11th January 2010, followed by the eponymous album in April.
