Last year’s Acoustic-4-A-Cure concert was an incredible event. Sammy Hagar, Metallica’s James Hetfield and more joined together on stage at The Fillmore to play for an admirable cause: the Pediatric Cancer Program at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
A year later they’re back at it, but this time, they’re bringing their cause to a larger venue: The Masonic in San Francisco. This May 15, Hetfield and Hagar will again take the stage backed by a megastar lineup of Jerry Cantrell, Pat Monahan, Linda Perry, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith and more. Each artist will perform an acoustic set with surprise duets, jams, and surprise guests.
If you recall, last year’s event joined Hetfield with Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Joe Satriani on stage for a take on Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” This year will surely bring even more incredible moments.
All proceeds will be donated to fund children’s brain tumor research at the children’s hospital.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 10 at 10:00 am.
