The fifth annual “Acoustic-4-A-Cure” benefit concert will be held at The Fillmore in San Francisco on May 15. Sammy Hagar and Bob Weir will host this year’s event, which will be a special 75th birthday celebration for Taj Mahal.

Both Sammy and Bobby will perform at Acoustic-4-A-Cure on May 15 as will Taj. Joe Satriani, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony, Kevin Cronin, Eddie Money and Vic Johnson have also been confirmed for the charity event. Proceeds benefit The Pediatric Cancer Program at UCSF’s Benioff Children’s Hospital.

“I was a fan of Taj Mahal long before I had a record deal in Montrose 1973,” said Sammy Hagar. “He’s become a dear friend over the years and without a doubt, is one of the few living blues legend left on this planet!!! Having Bob Weir, being on the same page, understanding how important and how much fun this will be much less with a bunch of great artists, for a good cause!!!! It doesn’t get any better than this annual event.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 30 at 10 a.m. PT via LiveNation.com.
