(TeamRock) A benefit show will be held on November 15 in London to honor the late Eagles Of Death Metal roadie Nick Alexander who was a victim of the terrorist attack in Paris.

The merchandise manager, from Weeley, Essex was 35 when he was killed in a terrorist attack, which saw 90 people murdered during the Eagles Of Death Metal show at the Paris Bataclan by extremist gunmen. He was with his ex-girlfriend Helen Wilson at the time, with whom he remained close friends following the end of their two-year relationship.

The tribute concert, named A Peaceful Noise, will take place at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, and will feature artists such as Frank Turner, Maximo Park and former Supergrass man Gaz Coombes.

Alexander's mother Sheelagh tells BBC: "I was never worried while he was on tour. I worried more about when he was at home on his own, in his flat. Because when you're on tour, you're part of the family. If anything happens, you would be looked after. If you weren't around you'd be missed." Read more here.
