Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield will get out their acoustic guitars for the second annual Acoustic 4 A Cure in San Francisco in May.
Acoustic 4 A Cure is a charity event started by Hetfield and Hagar to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Program at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
Last year’s highlights included Hetfield’s acoustic rendition of The Beatles “In My Life,” Billie Joe Armstrong, Hetfield and guitarist Joe Satriani performing Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” and the Hagar promised, “only-in-San Francisco moment” when Hetfield, Armstrong, Satriani, Pat Monahan and Nancy Wilson joined him on stage for an all-star jam of Bob Dylan’s “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” to close the show.
This year’s event will also bring back Pat Monahan of Train and Joe Satriani and feature Linda Perry and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith.
Acoustic 4 A Cure will be held on Friday, May 15 at The Masonic in San Francisco.
