Bob Weir, Members of Foo Fighters and More Play Sammy Hagar’s Acoustic-4-A-Cure Benefit

Sammy Hagar hosted his fourth annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit concert last night at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Hagar and Metallica frontman James Hetfield co-founded the event, which featured an array of artists throughout the evening, including Bob Weir, members of Foo Fighters, Steve Vai, Mick Fleetwood and more.

As JamBase reports, Hagar opened up the night with his own set that featured a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus,” with Weir following the opening act with a solo “Peggy-O” before he was joined on stage by Vai, Fleetwood and bassist Ruth Davies for songs like Weir’s solo “Only A River” and the Grateful Dead’s “The Other One.” Hagar then came out to help out on “Loose Lucy.”

Other artists participating in the event, which raised money for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, included Sarah McLachlan, Pat Benetar & Neil Giraldo and former Eagles member Don Felder. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl then led his bandmates Taylor Hawkins and Rami Jaffee in the final set, which included some of the band’s hits like “Times Like These” and “Everlong,” along with the debut of new tune “The Sky is a Neighborhood.” Watch a video of that debut below.
