It would appear that after 11 years since his last album, Aaron Carter is still partying. So much so that he’s taking the after party on tour.
“I’m Happy to Announce That I Will Be Going on My long Overdue Tour TheAfterPartyTour! Stay Tuned For More Dates That Will Be Added Soon. Here we go!” the 25-year-old child pop star posted on his Facebook page Monday.
If you’re keeping count, that’s four ’90s hit-makers (we may be using that descriptor loosely) – Justin Timberlake, the Backstreet Boys and Destiny’s Child included – making headlines this year. Is it too early to rename 2013 the return of the ’90s?
Carter, younger brother to the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, is best known for his 2000 album Aaron’s Party (Come Get It), which was popular with the Disney Channel/Nickelodeon crowd thanks to singles “How I Beat Shaq,” “I Want Candy” and of course, “Aaron’s Party.”
