Family and friends of Nick Alexander, the Essex man killed in last November's Paris terror attacks, will be joined by a host of rock stars for a concert celebrating his life.

Organisers behind the tribute gig in London, dubbed A Peaceful Noise, said special guests have also been lined up to perform.

Travis frontman Fran Healy, Supergrass's Gaz Coombes and rockers Maximo Park are among those on the bill for the concert at the Sheperd's Bush Empire.

Mr Alexander, who was from Weeley near Colchester, was killed at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris on November 13 last year. The 35-year-old was a roadie with US band the Eagles Of Death Metal when three terrorists stormed the 150-year-old building.

I think it's going to be uplifting, emotional, but a really special and hopefully very fitting tribute to everyone who was there at the Bataclan.

Mr Alexander's sister, Zoe, said: "Nick's at the heart and centre of this event but we also want to reflect generally how the industry came together.

"Everybody will bring their own thing to it. We'll be there down the front - family, friends, fans of the artists and people who just want to pay tribute.
