Aaron Carter Milwaukee Performance Slammed

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Kevin John Bozelka ripped into Aaron Carter’s Wednesday night show for Nickelodeon’s TEENick Presents Aaron’s Party at the Marcus Amphitheater.

Aaron’s sister Leslie was scheduled to appear but did not perform, but brother Aaron’s performance was said to not “have enough material to make for a compelling hour-plus of live entertainment. So all sorts of dreary tricks were used to fill in the spaces.”

Bozelka says the show is filled with Silly Putty fights and video testimonials to Carter’s cuteness among other snoozing skits.

The critic admits it’s a pretty harsh review for a 13 year old performer, but says Carter wants to be taken seriously so it basically comes with the territory.

Bozelka felt opening act, the A*Teens were “infinitely superior.”
