The “twins” Chad Smith and Will Ferrell will once get together again for the joy of the fans – and for a good cause too! The actor is hosting a charity event that will feature Chad Smith’s supergroup Super Mega Funktastic Jam Rock All Stars. The band features Chris Martin (Coldplay), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Duff McKagan (Guns N ‘Roses).
The event, called Will Ferrell’s Best Night Of Your Life, takes place at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on October 6. Other names like Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien, Samantha Bee, Michelle Wolf and Kumail Nanjiani are also confirmed tonight.
Proceeds from the presentation go to Cancer for College. You can buy tickets here.

Will and Chad
Chad and Will were face to face in Jimmy Fallon’s show a few years ago and they made drum battle.
Take a look:
Widely regarded as one of rock music’s best drummers, Spin magazine placed Smith at #10 on their list of the “100 Greatest Drummers of Alternative Music” in May 2013. Readers of UK-based Rhythm magazine ranked Smith and Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea the fourth-greatest rhythm section of all time in their June 2013 issue.
The drummer is also known for his charity work especially with young musicians. He has been a lobbyist in support of music education in U.S. public schools.
Smith is also widely known for the strong resemblance between himself and comedian Will Ferrell, which has led to various comparisons over the years and eventually led to a joking public feud and drum battle for charity on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Smith is also the host of the PBS concert series, Landmarks Live in Concert, which began in January 2017.
