Good Charlotte heads back to the Las Vegas stage for a free concert on Friday, May 24th, 2019 at 9 PM, after rocking out at the Fremont Street Experience in 2017.
The group, consisting of vocalist Joel Madden, guitarists Benji Madden and Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and drummer Dean Butterworth formed back in 1996. They’ve come a long way from their humble beginnings of garage band practice in small-town Waldorf, Maryland, selling more than 11 million albums sold worldwide. WIth top 10-charting albums and hit singles like “The Anthem” and “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, Good Charlotte’s legacy as one of the most popular pop-punk bands of all time has allowed them to blaze a trail for younger artists like 5 Seconds of Summer and All Time Low.
After a decision to disband in 2011, where brothers Joel and Benji Madden launched their careers as solo artists, the band is reunited! Good Charlotte’s 6th album, Youth Authority embodies odds-denying optimism and an unbreakable connection with their audience. Newly independent for the first time, the band is calling the shots and playing music like they did in the early days – driven by love, instead of financial success or stardom.
