Each artist will play an acoustic set, and according the Acoustic-4-a-Cure website, will include "once-in-a-lifetime musical moments, duets, jams and surprise guests."  Monahan tells ABC Radio he thinks one of the unannounced guests will be Adam Sandler.  He adds that he expects that he and other artists on the lineup will "all do something together and I think there's gonna be a really good time."

Hagar and Hetfield founded Acoustic-4-a-Cure in order to raise funds for and awareness of the Pediatric Cancer Program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.  The two rockers also performed at 2014's inaugural event, as did Satriani and Monahan.  In addition, last year's concert featured Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Heart's Nancy Wilson and British singer-songwriter Scott Matthews.
