The 4th annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure concert created by legendary guitarist Sammy Hagar and Metallica frontman, James Hetfield, will be lead this year by none other than Foo Fighters frontman and musical-every-man, Dave Grohl. After announcing that Hetfield would have to bow out of this year's performance due to Metallica's summer WorldWired tour, the announcement came as a welcome to music fans.
While bittersweet, Hagar will be joined by Grohl, as well as former Eagles guitarist Don Felder, Mick Fleetwood, Grateful Dead icon Bob Weir, Steve Vai, Vic Johnson, Sarah McLachlan and Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo.
"The benefit concert raises funds and awareness for the pediatric cancer research with all proceeds donated to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital," according to the members of Metallica.
Tickets for the event go on sale March 31st at 10 a.m. Pacific time at Live Nation. Check the event's website for more info!
