Get ready to party around the country this October as Hunters presents Example and DJ Wire Live Summer Tour powered by 5FM.
British superstar Example has notched up two UK No 1 singles (Changed The Way You Kiss Me and Stay Awake) and No 1 album (Playing in the Shadows). Chart success has translated into live success, and this year he sold-out a 14-date UK arena tour, played slots at Creamfields, T in the Park and V and became one of the most exciting live acts currently touring.
DJ Wire started his career playing on pirate radio-station Freak FM. He is credited with playing an instrumental part in the formation of the “Grime” scene with the release of his seminal track Believe Me. In 2008 he teamed up with Chase and Status to set-up MTA Records. It was through Chase and Status that he met Example. Wire produced several tracks for Example’s Won’t Go Quietly gold-selling album and began touring and performing with him. In 2010 he presented his first multi-genre mix CD The Playlist for Ministry of Sound with Example.
