Whether you’re chasing nostalgia or novelty, Tuesday promises a singular show when Tricky Falls welcomes former teen pop star Aaron Carter. The singer, now 25, is known for several early ’00s hits and for being the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. While his well-documented personal life has had its share of knocks, including a recent bankruptcy filing, the past year has renewed Carter’s focus. He finished a 415-performance run on Broadway, then booked a solo tour. His set will include hits (“Aaron’s Party,” “That’s How I Beat Shaq”), covers (“Blurred Lines”) and plenty of dance moves. We talked over the phone about growing up famous and the next album – his first in 11 years.
Q. You’ve dealt with screaming girls since you were a kid. How do you keep that sort of thing from going to your head?

That’s so crazy.” Because to them, looking at it, it’s different and it’s crazy. But to us, to people who deal with it, it becomes a part of our normal life.
