MUSIC_MAINRAP star Tiny Tempah is set to headline the opening gig at the country’s first fully accessible music events club for disabled people.

Radio One DJ Jameela Jamil has set up her Why Not People? club to provide exclusive gigs with gold-standard access for its disabled members and friends.

Five massive acts – Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, James Blake, Mark Ronson and Tinie Tempah – have all agreed to perform at Why Not People? gigs in 2015-16.
Jameela said: “Our members and their mates can expect a night and experience unparalleled to any other.

“No one will be separated from their mates, everyone will be right in the action.

“This is just the first of many.”

Technology such as the SubPac – which helps deaf people to “feel” the music – will also be featured at the event.

Jameela presented Radio One’s weekly chart show and has personal experience of disability.

After being hit by a car when she was 17, she was not able to walk for more than a year.

The launch event takes place at The Troxy, London on July 1
