Aaron Carter‘s tour is in full swing.
The singer stopped at Greenwich Village music venue (le) Poisson Rouge, where he treated a crowd of 300 to hits from his latest album, “LOVE,” as part of his nationwide lineup.
“It was a mixed crowd. Definitely some older fans from back in the day but mostly a new young crowd that was there for his new songs,” Marcus Linial, president of Fun Music Presents, the production company that throws weekly bashes at LPR, told Page Six on Thursday. “Aaron himself looked good and was very connected, he talked about the stories behind some of the songs.”
The 31-year-old’s new music comes after he suffered a variety of health issues, was charged with a DUI refusal and went to rehab in 2017. He also admitted that he didn’t think he’d make it to age 30. But at the beginning of last year, he told us he was in a good place and “feeling very healthy and passionate about music right now.”
During the gig, Carter performed on keyboards and was accompanied by a DJ and back-up singer, who was also a co-writer on the album.
He closed the show with a new version of his 2000 remake, “I Want Candy.”
Afterward, he spent time with fans who dropped $85 for a VIP ticket.
“I told him I loved his new album and he should be proud of it,” Linial recalled. “He said, ‘Yeah man, I’m just out here working as hard as I can right now to get it out to as many people as I can.’ He seems determined.”
Carter will be performing in Pennsylvania on Thursday and Friday night.
