On the final night of their tour, Good Charlotte stopped by the Midland in Kansas City on Wednesday to indulge both new fans and ones who have been along for the ride for the last two decades.
Brothers Joel and Benji Madden spent time between songs chatting with the crowd and taking on some current social commentary. Benji addressed racism and inequality in the country, while Joel made a point to note the importance of lifting up and supporting women, “because we’re going through a lot these days.” He then told the women in the room he was counting on them to pave the way for his daughter’s future. Before the night was over, the band dedicated “Hold On” to anyone struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts.
