I’m not sure how I missed this news when it was announced, but ATTENTION: AARON CARTER IS PLAYING A CONCERT IN FARGO! The part of me that is still 12 years old is dying inside of excitement. I had a crush on Aaron Carter and definitely owned a copy of Aaron’s Party on CD.
When I heard this news, I had to investigate tickets… and this is when I realized how washed up Aaron Carter really is.
- Tickets only cost $20. Yes, there are cheap concerts, but come on at one point I would have paid a year’s worth of allowance to get tickets for an Aaron Carter concert!
- I had never even heard of the (tiny) venue he is playing at. FYI, it’s at the Legacy Ballroom in Fargo… which the website says has a maximum capacity of 250 people. That’s the biggest venue this guy can book? Sad thing is they probably won’t even sell out!
- YOU CAN BUY A MEET AND GREET FOR $70. Yes, for $70 you can not only meet Aaron Carter after the show, but get a picture with him, 8 x 10 posters and autographs. So you can get all of that for less than the price of a pair of Sperrys. Is this real life?
- His tour is called “The After Party” tour. This made me LOL.
This kind of makes me feel bad for the kid. I think I would rather have not been famous at all than struggle to sell 250 concert tickets at hole-in-the-wall places across the country and sell a meet and greet for 7o bucks. For most of the big stars out there, you can’t even buy a meet and greet… they have to be won after you join their fan club. Poor Aaron.
The 21+ show in Fargo is June 13. Tickets can be purchased here, if you’re interested!
In the meantime, please enjoy this classic song. It’s my personal favorite from Aaron Carter and I must admit, even after all these years its still quite catchy.
