Singer celebrates Number One album with his first arena run

Example has announced his first UK arena tour for next year.

The singer, who achieved his first UK Number One album yesterday (September 11) with ‘Playing In The Shadows’, will play five shows in April 2012.

The tour begins on April 24, with a show at Aberdeen‘s Exhibition And Conference Centre and runs until April 30, when the singer headlines Bournemouth International Centre. The run also includes a date at London‘s O2 Arena, Example‘s biggest ever UK headline show to date.

Example also tours the UK in November and December this year, but that particular trek is now largely sold out.

Example will play:

Aberdeen Exhibition And Conference Centre (April 24)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (26)
London O2 Arena (27)
Manchester Evening News Arena (28)
Bournemouth International Centre (30)
