We show that the semi-leptonic decay $B^+ \to \pi^+\pi^-\ell^+\nu_\ell$ can be used as a source of information for two-pion distribution amplitudes. The connection between these amplitudes and the B-meson decay width is achieved by the light cone sum rule method. We show the relevant distribution amplitudes and give the formula for the decay width.
