The Foo Fighters will headline the annual Salesforce Dreamfest charity concert in September to benefit the University of California San Francisco's Benioff Children’s Hospitals.
The cloud-based software company based in San Francisco has previously hosted the Dreamfest concert during the three-day Dreamforce Conference, featuring past performances from artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, Lenny Kravitz, the Killers and Alicia Keys.
This year's concert will start at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Chase Center, according to a press release.
The 15-time Grammy Award-winning group recently played in San Francisco at the Outside Lands festival at Golden Gate Park. During the show, frontman David Grohl brought Michael Bublé onstage to perform.
The annual concert has raised over $100 million for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland, according to Salesforce.
Before the event, 22-year-old UCSF patient Selah Kitchiner will be honored with the Colin Powell Medal of Courage for "her tremendous bravery and earnest commitment to health equity," according to an event spokesperson.
Tickets to the event range from $1,000 to $1,000,000 and include access to the VIP cocktail reception, concert and after-party, according to the event's website.
