Nick Carter’s “All American” Tour hit the Playstation Theatre in NYC over the weekend. We expected Nick to give 300% on tour, as he does with everything he does, but he was even better than we expected. The show was divided into three parts with a distinct style – rock star Nick played guitar to start off the night, he broke it down for a more acoustic set wearing a fedora, and ended the night showing off his dance moves. The show gave Nick a chance to show off his range from boyband pop to rock and back again.
Nick managed to find the perfect balance between his solo material and Backstreet Boys songs. He also threw in “One More Time,” from his project with Jordan Knight of NKOTB. While some solo artists refuse to even acknowledge the group or band they came from, Nick fully embraced his boyband heritage. He understands that while the crowd is definitely there to support and hear Nick’s new music, odds are they are BSB fans as well. This made for an insanely fun, high energy show as he surprised us with a mix of songs from all of his solo projects and a mix of Backstreet songs. We all got to party like we were “19 in 99!”
Brian Littrell made a surprise appearance on stage, eliciting lots of 1999 level screaming from the audience. He joined Nick for “I Want It That Way” and “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely.” Honestly, the show could have ended right there, but the night was just getting started. Brian also let it slip that the guys already have six songs recorded for the next Backstreet Boys album! They’re set to put the finishing touches on it very, very soon.
Nick got to show off his moves from “Dancing With The Stars,” breaking out into a salsa number after “The Call.” He ended the night with a series of songs that showed of his lighter side – and Nick is clearly not afraid of make fun of himself or have a good time with his fans. He’s no stranger to being in front of large crowds but that’s really where Nick Carter shines – on a stage with his fans singing along with him!
