Aaron Carter Hits Road With A*Teens

By | April 23, 2001 at 12:00 AM

He beat Shaq, and now he’s taking on the rest of the country.

Aaron Carter, whose Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) jumps 11 spots to #4 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week, is launching a 46-date American tour on June 17 in Santa Barbara, California.

Sweden’s A*Teens will open the shows, which will hit amphitheaters and arenas from the West Coast to the East.

Aaron, the male Carter for those who find older brother Nick too wizened for their tastes, is riding on the success of his single, “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” which he performed at Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards on Saturday and will play on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Tuesday.

On the strength of “Shaq,” Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) was recently certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Before heading out on the summer tour, Carter will finish his run on Broadway, where he stars as JoJo Who in “Seussical the Musical” through May 6.

The Abba-loving A*Teens are also enjoying a hot streak. Their second record, Teen Spirit, climbs this week from # 96 to # 63 on the Billboard 200. The group, whose current single is “Bouncing Off the Ceiling (Upside Down),” presented at the Kid’s Choice Awards and are taping a concert for the Fox Family Network that will air sometime in August.
