Example will unleash his array of hits, bangers and more when he embarks on an Australian tour this November, Rolling Stone can exclusively reveal.

The Britain-raised, Brisbane-based electronic music star will play the big three east coast cities for his Bangers, Hits, and a Couple New Bits swing, produced by TEG Live and announced today.

In celebration of his 15-year career, the singer, songwriter, rapper and producer (real name: Elliot Gleave) will play a 90-minute set of classics and new cuts from 2007 through to his most recent LP, 2022’s We May Grow Old But We Never Grow Up.

Godlands is support on the trek, which starts November 3rd at Sydney’s Liberty Hall, then visits Melbourne’s 170 Russell (November 10th) and Brisbane’s Princess Theatre (November 17th).

Example is a heavyweight in the electronic dance scene, particularly in his homeland where he has 16 top 40 hits, including eight top 10s and a pair of No. 1 singles, with 2011’s “Changed the Way You Kiss Me” and “Stay Awake.”

He also owns a UK number one album with Playing In The Shadows, one of three top 10 appearances there.

Across his recording career, Example has collaborated with the likes of Calvin Harris, Pet Shop Boys, and Australia’s own What So Not, and earned production credits from Chase & Status, and Sub Focus.

On the live circuit, he has played the biggest stages on the planet, including Glastonbury Festival, and his calendar includes a date this weekend at Creamfields.

Example relocated to the Sunshine State during the pandemic, and, in 2021, joined the management roster for boutique Australian music company Call & Response, alongside UK-based Circle Eight, and separately signed with BMG. Last year, he was tapped as a keynote speaker for the BIGSOUND summit.

Pre-sale registration for his Australia tour starts August 22nd, with pre-sale access beginning August 30th. General tickets will be available from August 31st.
