Ready to make a splash in York… Example

Chart topping singer Example is to play York Barbican this autumn.

The songwriter, producer and rapper, who has had two number one singles, is playing the venue on Thursday, October 23, 2014 as part of his 26-date UK tour.

Tickets cost £27.50 and go on sale on Friday, August 22 at 9am.

“I haven’t covered the UK properly for such a long time,” Example said.

“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.”

Example is known for staging impressive live sets.

“Expect all the hits from the last three albums plus all the bangers and singles off album number five a spectacular 90 minute show.”

Hit maker

Born Elliot Gleave, he got his stage name from his initials – EG. Example found success with his second album, Won’t Go Quietly – released in 2010 it reached number 4 in the UK.

His third album went to the top of the charts and included two singles which reached number one in 2011, Changed The Way You Kissed Me and Stay Awake.

Say Nothing, from the album The Evolution Of Man, went straight in at number two in September 2012.

The tour promotes his fifth album, Live Life Living, which was released in July. It includes the track One More Day, which reached number four.
