Carter Concert Coming Quickly

If you want to relive the 2000s, grab your flared jeans and frost those tips because on Friday, Aaron Carter will be coming to North Dakota State for a 7 p.m. concert sponsored by Campus Attractions.

Carter, the turn of the century heartthrob, will also be accompanied by special guest The Icarus Account.

Aaron Carter made his debut during the ’90s, releasing his first studio album at the young age of 10-years-old. His second album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” was a huge hit, selling three million copies and going platinum. The success lead to him having guest appearances on Nickelodeon and even touring with the Backstreet Boys.

After his second album the teen star released another platinum record entitled “Oh Aaron.” Unfortunately, his charm and fame began to fade with his next two albums, released in 2002 and 2003. After his “Most Requested Hits” collection, Carter took a break from releasing pop music.

Since his hiatus, Carter has appeared on Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Cook-Off and the off-Broadway play “The Fantasticks.” However, when 2014 rolled around, the singer/dancer/actor decided he would make a return to pop music sometime soon.

Soon afterward, he released a single “Ooh Wee” featuring Pat SoLo, and started touring around debuting songs from his upcoming album “LØVË,” set to release later this year. The first single from this album “Fool’s Gold” was released April 1.

For Carter’s concert Friday there is sure to be a lot of new, unfamiliar music from the artist’s upcoming album. Don’t worry though, there is also a chance that he might sing some old school tunes like “I Want Candy,” which gained him his initial fame.

The band The Icarus Account will also be joining the singer at the NDSU concert tomorrow. These two twins, Ty and Trey, combine their country and pop talents to write and perform songs that aim to strike a chord with the audience.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Bison Card office in the Memorial Union. Up to two tickets can be purchased with one NDSU student ID, so you can take that special someone to this amazing event.
