Aaron Carter says that he knows people think the oldies he’s performing in concert on his Jukebox Tour were chosen by older people who work with him. But Carter said he personally selected the songs from the ’50s through the ’80s, including favorites from Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Sammy Davis, Jr., the Rolling Stones, the Monkees, David Bowie, and others.
“Oh yeah, definitely, these are definitely all my own choices,” Carter said. “These are songs that I was, like, I had to do, you know? I’m happy I picked these ones, you know, ’cause some people my age will know them-not a lot will, but some will know them. So it’ll be cool. It’ll be fun.”
Carter is also performing his own hits on the Jukebox Tour dates.
Carter is working on his fifth album, the follow-up to 2002’s Another Earthquake!, which he says should be out in early 2004.
He’s also getting ready to work on the science fiction movie Future Force, which will be his first starring role. The movie will be out in 2005, and Carter will record some music for the soundtrack, as well as for a companion video game.
Carter’s next show is Monday (July 28) at the Grove Of Anaheim in Anaheim, California.
