Example to host show on Capital FM
Rapper/singer's Saturday night slot begins this weekend
The singer will take to the airwaves on Saturdays between 7pm and 10pm, with his first show taking place this weekend (February 15).
Commenting on his new appointment, the singer/rapper said: "Capital has championed my music from the early days, and over the years it's been a real pleasure to be part of their Jingle Bell and Summertime Balls as well as numerous appearances on the Breakfast show."
To host my own show, and have the chance to play some of the freshest dance tracks to Capital's listeners across the country, goes even further in cementing the great relationship we already have. I can't wait to get stuck in!
Example releases a new single, 'Kids Again', on March 16, with a fifth studio album to follow in June. He is also set to play six gigs in three cities across one weekend to mark the release of the new track. "Basically the last few years I've spent loads of time doing arenas and festivals, there's loads of people out there saying like, 'I wanna see you in small venues again, I wanna be able to touch you'," he said. "So we're just kind of bringing it back to the basics, the old school, when I used to play really small venues. We'll be back in arenas in November. But it's gonna be good, it's called the 'Ultimate Weekender'."
Example will play:
London KOKO (March 13)
London Village Underground (13)
Manchester Academy (14)
Manchester Deaf Institute (14)
Glasgow The Garage (15)
Glasgow The Arches (15)
