UK rapper Example will play his first major Irish headline show at The O2 in Dublin next February.

The Londoner will be in town on the 21st, with tickets priced at a modest €35.

The Evolution of Man, the fourth album from Example, is set for a November release and Example is expected to be one of the performers at this year's Arthur's Day.

The rapper, real name Elliot Gleave, has spoken of how much he enjoys live gigs. "My mission statement is to get everyone going f**king mental", he said. "I base the success of my gigs on how bouncy the crowd is. I watched Faithless for years and have watched Nirvana headline Reading… I want to recapture that energy."
