Good Charlotte | 9:30 Club | Washington, D.C.

Photographs and Review by Stacey Prosper.
After a five year hiatus, Good Charlotte announced that they are back with a new album and a short tour! Their sixth record, Youth Authority, is due out this July. To kick things off, they announced a four city tour hitting Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York and Boston. With Washington, D.C. being their hometown show, you know it was going to be a good time. Good Charlotte is Joel Madden (lead vocals), Benji Madden (lead guitar/backing vocals), Paul Thomas (bass), Billy Martin (rhythm guitar), and Dean Butterworth (drums).
The sold out show at 9:30 Club had people lined up hours before the doors were set to open as fans eagerly awaited the chance to see Good Charlotte back in action. Doors opened at 7:00pm with Good Charlotte slated to take the stage at 9:15pm.
At 9:18pm the lights dimmed and the crowd erupted as Good Charlotte took the stage and immediately started the show off with one of their most popular songs off of their 2002 album, The Young and the Hopeless, “The Anthem.” They played different tracks off most of their albums, and even included a few extras that the fans had been requesting. Most of the requests being songs that they hadn’t even played in about 6-10 years. Fan favorites like, “Seasons,” “Mountain,” “S.O.S.,” “East Coast Anthem” and “Waldorf Worldwide” were belted out, and the fans sang along to every word.
Good Charlotte brings so much energy and love to their shows. When you are at their show you always feel appreciated. They make sure they always thank their fans. Good Charlotte tells their fans how much they mean to them and how if it weren’t for them they wouldn’t be where they are now. Their music speaks to many different varieties of people – so no matter how you dress, how old you are or what’s going on in your life, you are always welcomed in as part of the Good Charlotte family.
