NICK CARTER

ALL AMERICAN TOUR

LIVE @ THE PHOENIX

FEATURE EDITORIAL

 On St. Paddy's Day last Thursday night March, 17 2016, baby Backstreet Nick Carter, hit up Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theater for his All American Tour. Honestly, did not think I would make it out to this event! It was 20:30ish when I arrived, shooting the supporting act Riley Biederer went out the window. I missed the media call for her set. It was a Live Nation event didn't even know I was covering it, no usual heads up email was received. Not a complete loss, I did make it for the headliner and did hear the last few minutes of Riley's set. From what I heard she didn't sound too bad, guess I will have to catch her if she returns to Toronto for a future gig. 

 

It was packed to the back with females and a more guys floating about than I expected, obviously the majority was femmes. There were a few familiar faces lingering about and I met some new faces but also missed some wayback old school faces. Normally my homies worked with Carter, but sadly they've left us for the other side and much too soon I must say, especially Q! It has been what? Like four years since I covered this Backstreet Boys' solo set. I believe the last one was CNE 2012, ah yes (read it here), wow what a complete difference in energy from the crowd compared to that gig. I think it was last year or the year before that he did an album and tour with New Kid Jordan Knight. Of course Toronto was on the list but I missed the shows. Too busy chilling on the beach in Cuba or St Maartin, I honestly don't remember but I wasn't in the country. Carter sang the track he did with Knight "One More Time" in his set last night, not bad at all.
