Example announces November/ December 2011 UK tour - tickets on sale Friday 10th June

Posted: 7th June 2011

Leading by Example - it's a well-worn clichéd headline and phrase (yes, I used it two years ago), but an apt one. The Hammersmith rapper, producer and remixer has recently coveted the #1 slot on the iTunes chart and racked-up 3 million hits on YouTube with "Shot Yourself in the Foot Again", featuring Skream. You can watch his most recent single, "Changed the Way You Kiss Me", right here (just click on the player).

However, it's probably time for Example to shape-up with another album and, lo and behold, what do we have here? "Playing in the Shadows", the new collection by his nibs, featuring the aforementioned Skream, as well as Faithless, Chase and Status and Nero on production duties, is ready for lift-off with the help of a UK tour.

His new shows will take place after his exhausting festival slots, starting with Margate on 21st November and followed by Southend, Plymouth, Manchester, Brixton and more until Nottingham on 15th December (scroll down for the full list). Tickets will go on sale from 9am on Friday, priced at £17.50.
