Backstreet Boys dedicate part of London show to ‘brother’ Aaron Carter

The Backstreet Boys dedicated part of a performance on Sunday night to their “younger brother” Aaron Carter, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 34.

Speaking on stage during the show at the O2 Arena, singer Kevin Richardson said: “Everybody here, we grew up together, we’ve had our ups and downs.

“You’ve been with us through it and we’ve been with you through it and so thank you for taking us on that journey with you.

“We thank you for being part of the Backstreet family for 29 years.”

Richardson added: “We have a heavy heart tonight because we lost one of our family members yesterday and we just wanted to find a moment on our show to recognize him.

“Nick’s brother passed away yesterday… He was part of our family and we want to thank you for all of your love, well wishes and support. .”

After news of the death was announced, Nick Carter wrote a lengthy tribute to his “brother” on Instagram, acknowledging the “complicated relationship” the couple had.

“I always had hope that somehow he would one day want to go down the path of saneness and eventually find the help he so badly needed,” he said.

“Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for the loss, but the truth is addiction and mental illness are the real culprits here.

“I will miss my brother more than anyone has ever known.”

Aaron Carter’s second studio album, Aaron’s Party (Come And Get It), was released in 2000 and went triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

It included the singles I Want Candy, Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) and That’s How I Beat Shaq, and Carter supported the album for several Backstreet Boys concerts and for Britney Spears on the Oops tour! … I Did It Again.

He has turned to rap music in recent years, abandoning the image of a child star with several tattoos on his face.

Carter also had his share of the controversy as well as some violations of the law.

Carter acknowledged the ban on Twitter at the time but denied the allegation of threatening behavior.
