The Cure - British Rockers Back Disability Equality Campaign

British rock acts The Cure, Franz Ferdinand and Mystery Jets have thrown their support behind a new campaign to make gigs more accessible for disabled music fans.

The MusicWithoutBarriers drive aims to raise awareness of the problems facing disabled revellers when they want to see their favourite bands live in the U.K.

A statement from the Mystery Jets, whose frontman Blaine Harrison suffers from spina bifida, reads, "Whether it's watching a friend's band at a local venue or watching Radiohead from the disabled platform at Glastonbury, gigs should be accessible to everyone."

Other performers backing the cause include The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, Alt-J, Tom Odell and Frank Turner, who adds, "Everybody deserves the chance to enjoy live music, and coming together to improve access for all is only going to make shows better for everyone."
