This is only the second time I've seen Good Charlotte perform despite liking their music for around 15 years. They're one of those bands that I wish I'd experienced earlier in smaller more intimate venues. Good Charlotte have been going for an unbelievable 22 years, yet they still remain as dedicated to their fans as ever. Tonight it's a sold out gig and tickets are like gold dust. I myself very nearly didn't get one.
It's worth going to see them just to witness the crowd going absolutely crazy for them. Everyone knows every line of every song. At times they even drown the band out with their enthusiastic singing.
There are no fancy pyrotechnics. Good Charlotte don't need any of that gimmicky nonsense when they've got a wonderful live set that they've honed to perfection. They know their loyal fans have come simply for a night of good music and they don't disappoint; their playlist takes you through all their albums and no hit single is left out.
Would definitely recommend you see them when they next hit your town or city.
