Tool drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor will be performing alongside Primus at a benefit concert taking place April 17 in Los Angeles.

The show will support Jimmy Hayward, a filmmaker and animator who’s undergoing cancer treatment.

“Every now and again cancer steps into our world and pulverizes the lives of people that are dear to us,” says Primus frontman Les Claypool. “Such a thing happened a while back with our good friend Jimmy Hayward.”

“It is at this time that we in Primus and some of Jimmy’s good friends in the music/entertainment world have decided to give a ‘brother a hand,’ and do a live performance in his honor and for the benefit of his family,” Claypool continues. “Please come down and witness a one-time collaborative music event in celebration of our good friend.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 24, at 10 a.m. PT via Primusville.com.

Hayward was an animator on the first two Toy Story movies and Finding Nemo, and directed the 2010 comic book film Jonah Hex.

If you can’t make it to the concert, you can also donate to Hayward’s GoFundMe page.
