Sammy Hagar, Foo Fighters & more playing Rock ‘n’ Relief benefit livestream concert


Sammy Hagar, Foo Fighters and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell are among dozens of artists that will be featured performing during Rock ‘n’ Relief, an upcoming benefit livestream concert.

The two-day virtual event will raise money for the Los Angeles-based organization Community Organized Relief Effort, or CORE, which was co-founded by actor Sean Penn and which is working to “provide equitable access to free testing and vaccines” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will feature both live and virtual performances. Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes curated the lineup, and also will be performing. Hagar will be joined by his current band The Circle, which also features ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and veteran rock drummer Jason Bonham. Other artists on the bill include Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale, Sheryl Crow, Carly Simon, L7‘s Donita Sparks, Tracy Bonham, Silversun Pickups, Juliette Lewis, and Kevin Bacon.

Rock ‘n’ Relief will stream via the Amazon Music Twitch channel and Rolling Stone magazine’s YouTube.
