Hagar said: “For me, each year is better than the next. This year’s lineup (as usual) is eclectic and packed with talent. I’m so looking forward to being part of the chemistry of all these artists being in the same room for the night and creating something very unique, for those special music fans that support this impactful event each year.”
Now in its sixth year, “Acoustic-4-A-Cure” has quickly become one of the year’s hottest tickets, with legendary artists performing acoustic sets, epic collaborations and impromptu jams from the stages of intimate and storied San Francisco venues like The Fillmore. The benefit was created by Bay Area rock legends Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield, whose vision was to raise needed funds and awareness for the pediatric cancer research by throwing a must-see concert for fans and donating all of the proceeds to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. In past years, artists, including Billie Joe Armstrong, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Jerry Cantrell, Kevin Cronin, Melissa Etheridge, Mick Fleetwood, Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, James Hetfield, Vic Johnson, Tommy Lee, Taj Mahal, Sarah McLachlan, Pat Monahan, Linda Perry, Chad Smith, Adam Sandler, Joe Satriani, Bob Weir, Nancy Wilson, and more, have performed remarkable sets.
