Sammy Hagar and James Hetfield announced the line-up for “Acoustic-4-A-Cure IV,” on May 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Artists performing at Acoustic-4-A-Cure IV 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 blends veterans and newcomers to the event, with Dave Grohl sitting in for James Hetfield, who will be away on tour.

Now in its fourth 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 John Mayer, Billie Joe Armstrong, Jerry Cantrell, Melissa Etheridge, Joe Satriani, Pat Monahan, Adam Sandler, Nancy Wilson, Linda Perry, Chad Smith, Vic Johnson, Tommy Lee and Kris Kristofferson have joined Hagar and Hetfield to rock the sold-out benefit concerts.
