Good Charlotte Set For Annapolis Benefit Show


Good Charlotte will perform at a benefit concert in Annapolis to honor the five Capital Gazette employees killed in an attack in their newsroom. The event is dubbed "Annapolis Rising: A Benefit for The Capital Gazette and Free Press."

Mayor Gavin Buckley announced that the event will take place July 28 and will include performances, as well as guest speakers from the journalism community. Information on tickets will be available at a later date. Proceeds will benefit a fund established for the victims and survivors, as well as journalism scholarships.

"I feel everything starts at home, it starts in your community and this is the place in Maryland that we come from. This is the place we go back to. We feel very, very deeply connected to Annapolis and it's a very important place to us. It's very important for us to show up for the city," Joel Madden told The Associated Press.

"If we can help support an event that will be uplifting for the families of the victims and the tragedy as a whole, it feels really important to be a part of that," Benji Madden added.

The benefit concert will take place from a stage on College Avenue with the Maryland State House in the background.
