The After Party Tour[1] is the sixth headlining concert tour by American pop singer, Aaron Carter. Dubbed as a comeback tour, it's Carter's first concert tour since 2004. Beginning February 2013, the trek will play over 150 shows at theatres and nightclubs in the United States.

Background[edit]

The tour was announced on Carter's Facebook page on January 11, 2013. In his post, he stated, "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"![2] This is Carter's first tour in nine years. Following numerous career downfalls, the singer felt he wouldn't have the opportunity to tour again.[3] After his stint on Dancing with the Stars, Carter performed several one-off concerts, including the Summer MixTape Festival in 2012.[4] Before the tour commenced, the singer left his tenure performing as Matt on the off-Broadway play, The Fantasticks.[5]

The tour begin in February 2013 at the historic Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, New York. The tour name stems from Carter's best-selling album, Aaron's Party (Come Get It).[1] He feels the fun really happens at the after party. Keeping with the after party theme, the majority of the tour will reach small theaters, nightclubs and cafes—many with a capacity of 700 and under. Many dates have sold out quickly, causing the tour be extended into the end of June. The main promotion for the tour was social media. Carter interacts with fans on Twitter, even taking a pause during each concert to take an Instagram picture.[6] The singer has stated that a behind-the-scene documentary is being filmed while on tour, with a new album to possibly be released in the summer of 2013.

Critical response[edit]

The tour received noted praise from many music critics. Allie Caren (The Daily Orange) writes the crowd was beyond excited to see Carter perform at his concert in Syracuse. She continues, "The overall tone of Carter’s performance would have made all 90s kids in the audience reminiscent of the first Backstreet Boys or N Sync concert they ever attended. There is something about a pop star singing a feel-good pop song and dancing coordinated, pop-style moves—with back-up dancers—that brings a smile to an audience member’s face".[21]

In Northampton, Jake Reed (The Daily Collegian) estimates a successful comeback for Carter. He says, "Overall, the night was a success, because unlike other former child sensations, Carter didn’t spend the entire night removing himself from the image that he will always be known for. While odes to modern rap hits showed a new side of the 25-year-old’s personality, it was respectable that he didn’t shy away from singing and dancing like he was 12 years old again".[22] At the concert in Annapolis, Daneille Stern and Natasha Peavy (The Johns Hopkins News-Letter) called the energy of Carter's stage performance electric. They go on to say, "Throughout the concert, Carter was enthusiastic about engaging with the crowd, even going so far as to kiss a few select girls on the cheek and bring those with the best Carter-centric posters on stage for an Instagram photo-op".[10]
