TURLOCK - Pop-punk legends Good Charlotte will bring their unique, generation-defining sound to Turlock for the Stanislaus County Fair.

Good Charlotte will be performing Friday, July 21. The concert will begin at 8:30 p.m. The concert is free with the price of admission.

"This pop-punk group will leave our Fair guests feeling sentimental," said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. "It will be a fun and spirited show for our younger demographic."

Twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden have reunited with bassist Paul Thomas, guitarist/keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth to rekindle Good Charlotte. This pop-punk group was one of the most popular bands of the new millennium. Singles like "Little Things" and "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," set them on a path to superstardom. After taking some time off to explore other musical interests such as producing music for other artists and appearing as coaches on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, Good Charlotte is back to share their music with a new generation.

Good Charlotte's latest album "Youth Authority"screams early 2000's and marks the return of that nostalgic pop-punk sound. Reflect upon the good old days with tracks like "40 oz. Dream" and "Life Can't Get Much Better." The same tenacity they had on their first album never left. They have managed to take their life experience and create new anthems for today's adolescents.

The 2017 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 14 for a 10-day run. Fair guests can count on an award-winning experience that has been over 106 years in the making. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 29. Corporate ticket sales will also be available to purchase at a highly-discounted rate.
