Nickelback's Chad Kroeger playing Sammy Hagar's 2019 Acoustic-4-a-Cure benefit concert

ABC/Tim OgierNickelback's Chad Kroeger will perform at the sixth annual edition of the Acoustic-4-a-Cure benefit concert, which Sammy Hagar co-founded with Metallica's James Hetfield in 2014.

The show, which is scheduled for May 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, will also feature performances by Hagar and his current band The Circle, plus The Doobie Brothers' Tom Johnston, Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson and rock-guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, among others.

"For me, each year is better than the next. This year's lineup (as usual) is eclectic and packed with talent," says Hagar. "I'm so looking forward to being part of the chemistry of all these artists being in the same room for the night and creating something very unique, for those special music fans that support this impactful event each year."

The Acoustic-4-a-Cure concert raises funds for and awareness of the pediatric cancer program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in San Francisco. The event has historically featured the various artists performing acoustically, and includes unique duets, jams and surprise guest appearances.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, March 22, at 10 a.m. PT.
