Share This:

Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield announced yesterday (March 27) the line-up for Acoustic-4-A-Cure IV, the fourth annual fundraising event benefiting UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, taking place this year on May 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. Classic rock artists performing at the event include (in alphabetical order): Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Don Felder, Mick Fleetwood, Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, Vic Johnson, Sarah McLachlan, Steve Vai and Bob Weir.

The 2017 concert features veterans and newcomers to the event, with Grohl sitting in for James Hetfield, who will be away on tour with Metallica.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 31 at 10 a.m. local time via Live Nation. Tickets will not be available at box office, charge by phone or outlets. There is a two-ticket limit per customer.

Now in its fourth year, Acoustic-4-A-Cure has 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 rockers Hagar and 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 John Mayer, Melissa Ethridge, Joe Satriani, Train’s Pat Monahan, Adam Sandler, Nancy Wilson, Tommy Lee and others have joined Hagar and Hetfield to rock the sold-out benefit concerts.

Watch the 2016 lineup perform “Piece of My Heart” and “The Joker”…

Tickets are priced at $150 each for general admission which includes a commemorative t-shirt. A very limited amount of VIP tickets, at $500 each, will include access to an exclusive VIP area to view the concert, an Acoustic-4-A-Cure t-shirt and poster, complimentary food and drinks, and more.
