Get ready to party around the country in October as Hunters presents Example and DJ WIRE Live Summer Tour powered by 5FM in celebration of 5FM’s birthday. The festivities start in Cape Town on 4 October (Grand West Arena); Durban on 5 October (Wavehouse) and wrap in Johannesburg on 6 October(Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown). Also featured are a host of 5FM’s favourite artists including Funky G, Goodluck, Euphonic, Poppy, DJ Fix, DJ Fresh, Roger Goode and C Live. 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. 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 and run MTA Records. It was through Chase and Status he met Example. Wire produced several tracks for Example’s Won’t Go Quietly gold selling album and began touring and performing with him.Watch the hot video for Example's Changed The Way You Kiss Me.
