Sammy Hagar announces 8th annual Acoustic 4 A Cure benefit concert

Sammy Hagar has announced the line-up for the 8th annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit concert in San Francisco, CA.

The Saturday, May 13 event – in celebration of it's return home to the city’s legendary Fillmore for the first time post-Covid – will see Hagar and co-host Bob Weir perform alongside a lineup that will include Michael Anthony, Chris Isaak, Vic Johnson, Taj Mahal, Don Was, Nancy Wilson, and surprise guests.

Benefiting the Pediatric Cancer Program at UCSF's Benioff Children's Hospital, Acoustic-4-A-Cure 2023 is set to deliver true once-in-a-lifetime musical moments and collaborative jams that the concert event has become synonymous with.

"I'm thrilled that we're back for an eighth year and back home at the Fillmore in San Francisco where it all began," says Hagar. "Most of all I'm so grateful to my friends and partners who lend their unconditional support year after year. We're able to produce an arena level show at an intimate venue and keep the ticket prices affordable because these incredible artists donate their time and deliver unbelievable performances, with all of the profits going directly to an incredible cause. That's my kind of philanthropy!"

Now in its eighth year, Acoustic-4-A-Cure was created by Hagar and Metallica’s James Hetfield, whose vision was to raise needed funds and awareness for the pediatric cancer research at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, which provides an environment where children and their families find compassionate care at the forefront of scientific discovery, with more than 150 experts in 50 medical specialties serving patients throughout Northern California and beyond. The hospital admits about 5,000 children each year, including 2,000 babies born in the hospital.

UCSF Medical Center is recognized throughout the world as a leading academic medical center that provides innovative treatments, uses advanced technology, fosters collaboration among clinicians and scientists, and employs a highly compassionate team of doctors, nurses and staff.

Tickets for the 8th annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit concert will go on sale beginning Friday, April 14 at 10 a.m. PT via
