Joining Hetfield and Hagar on Friday, May 15 at The Masonic in San Francisco were special guests Adam Sandler, Jerry Cantrell, Pat Monahan, Linda Perry, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith and more. Each legendary artist performed acoustic sets – with once-in-a-lifetime musical moments, duets and jams.
All proceeds from the concert will be donated to fund children’s brain tumor research at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, one of the nation’s leading children’s medical facilities.
“Acoustic-4-A-Cure” 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 Program at UCSF by bringing together some of their legendary friends and throwing a must-see concert for fans.
This year’s show saw Hetfield perform with his 16-year-old daughter, Cali. He also shared the stage with Jerry Cantrell for a cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s Don’t Fear The Reaper.
