Xander and The Peace Pirates to support Bon Jovi at gig

Help

Liverpool band Xander and The Peace Pirates will support American rockers Bon Jovi in a stadium gig.

The band will perform in front of 50,000 people at Old Trafford in Manchester on 24 June.

The group is fronted by guitarist and vocalist Keith Xander, who was born with one arm and told he would never play guitar.

Xander told the BBC he hoped the band's success would inspire other disabled musicians.
