A charity gig for Nick Alexander - the British victim of the Bataclan terror attack - is being held today in his honour.

The Eagles Of Death Metal merchandise seller was killed during the horrifying events of 13 November 2015 which, saw 89 people lose their lives.

Tonight's event, named A Peaceful Noise, will take place at the 02 Shepherd's Bush Empire and feature performances from the likes of Maximo Park, Frank Turner, Gaz Coombes and Fran Healy from Travis.

The event will raise funds for The Nick Alexander Memorial Trust and Josh Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation.

Zoe Alexander, Nick’s sister and A Peaceful Noise founder said: “Live music was Nick’s passion and it seemed only fitting that we mark the anniversary of his passing in this way. Everyone who lost their lives that night had a shared love of music and we’re thrilled to bring some of Nick’s favourite artists together for this celebration of unity, peace and rock and roll”.

Frank Turner commented: “Losing Nick in the horrible events in Paris was the worst part of last year; he was truly one of the good guys. Bringing people together in the spirit of peace and music for an evening is the least we can do for his memory, I'm honoured to be asked to play".
