Example and DJ Wire will be conducting a three-city tour this summer when they visit Cape Town on 4 October 4, Durban on 5 October and Joburg on 6 October, 2012. The line-up also includes 5FM's DJ Fresh, Euphonik, Roger Goode, Poppy, Fix Moeti and C-Live, Goodluck, Ryan Dent, PH Fat, Nick Supply and Funky G.
British superstar Example has notched up two UK number one singles (Changed The Way You Kiss Me and Stay Awake) and a number one album ("Playing in the Shadows"). Live shows are key for Example. "My mission is to get everyone going mental. I base the success of my gigs on how bouncy the crowd is. I watched Faithless for years and have watched Nirvana headline Reading. They get crowds moshing. I want to recapture that energy."
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.The venues
