Preview: Example at Portsmouth Guildhall (11/11/2014)


Just one of a 28 show tour, Example will be performing in Portsmouth Guildhall on the 11th November. Known for his chart topping dance tracks, the tour is accompanying his fifth studio album Live Life Living, released in July earlier this year, and reached number eight in the album charts.

Example (otherwise known as Elliot Gleave) first came into public attention with ‘Watch the Sun Come up’ back in 2009, peaking at nineteen in the official charts. Since then however his sound has certainly changed slightly, moving to more rave and 90s dance beats, Live Life Living in particular uses less rap than some of his previous albums. The album was also released after a change in record label from Ministry of Sound to Epic Records, with Gleave stating the likes of The Prodigy and Faithless as some of his albums’ influences.

Following last single ‘One More Day (Stay With Me)’, Example is set to release his fourth single from the album ’10 Million People’ this October, a more chilled out dance track. He has also recently revealed via twitter that his wife is pregnant so he will not be touring for a while, in his words ‘Get involved in this cos I won’t be touring for ages (missus up the duff).’ This news only means that Example has got to make this tour a memorable one and odds are he’ll be going all out if he won’t be back for a while, so its set to be a good night. Example will also being supported by electro duo Delta Heavy.

Tickets are £30.25 and are available here, a meet and greet is also available to purchase via his website.
