Coming back for a second season and a new destination is "Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar Presented by Mercury Insurance!" The show is back on Sunday, March 5 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT for its season premiere on AXS TV. This time, Sammy Hagar starts things out in his hometown of San Francisco at Acoustic-4-A-Cure.
The 1st annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure began in 2014 as part of the Hagar Family Foundation's mission to become an on-going supporter of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, one of the leading children's medical facilities. One way they thought of to help raise money was using the power of music, so Sammy Hagar teamed up with musicians and The Fillmore in San Francisco for a big concert event that can be held yearly. That's how Acoustic-4-A-Cure came about with an inaugural lineup that featured performances by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Sammy Hagar, James Hetfield, Scott Mathews, Pat Monahan of Train, Joe Satriani and Nancy Wilson.
This unique event is now in its third year of existence and is one of the toughest tickets to score in town due to its star-studded lineup. Last year's lineup included performances from Metallica's James Hetfield, John Mayer, Melissa Etheridge, Joe Satriani and a few other special guests. Once again, Acoustic-4-A-Cure was held at the legendary Fillmore and will finally be open to TV audiences for the first time courtesy of "Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar Presented by Mercury Insurance." Sammy Hagar will be interviewing the acts and performing a powerful rendition of Janis Joplin’s “Piece Of My Heart” as part of the benefit concert.
Stay tuned for updates on one of television's coolest shows here on AXS.com when "The Red Rocker" Sammy Hagar takes you backstage and on the road once again on "Rock & Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar Presented by Mercury Insurance!"
