Nick Carter is a busy guy — he’s currently on his solo All American tour, prepping for a BSB cruise and is about to become a dad! So, what’s next? Maybe a Vegas residency?
We fell in love with Nick Carter when the Backstreet Boys first came out — and now, 23 (!) years later, we’re still obsessing. He’s currently on a huge tour promoting his third solo album All American; Nick chatted with HollywoodLife.com exclusively about the differences today, how he keeps in touch with his pregnant wife while on the road, and yes, the hopes to “light up Vegas.”
“There are times where I get lonely — there are also times where I’m enjoying the individuality, and the chance to go out there and do whatever I want,” Nick told us about being on the road solo versus touring with the guys. “When you’re in a band, you have to consider four other opinions — it’s a community, a democracy and it doesn’t always go your way. I love it, but it’s also great for me, going out and being by myself. We all enjoy just trying new things!”
As for what to expect from his shows, well it’s a little BSB music mixed with solo hits — but it’s not what you’re expecting! “The environment is kind of like a rock concert, but more intimate. It’s House of Blues types of show. We have the band, we pick up our instruments and just rock out!” He also added that at one point the guys cover a very popular song that gets the crowd going (I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t had the viewing pleasure just yet).
Nick also revealed that when he does get lonely — he Facetimes his pregnant wife, Lauren Kitt. “We FaceTime all the time — before we go to bed, on the bus, etc. You’ve gotta stay connected, especially since she’s pregnant,” he said adding that when she can, she still comes to shows.
When the tour is over, Nick will be focusing on promoting his movie, Dead 7, and another BSB album — this one is set to be a little “sexier” as AJ McLean previously told us. “Thats a great thing about being an artist — you take from part of your lives, you apply those to the material the art that you’re creating,” Nick said about the new, more mature music. “As a fan, you can evolve with us — sometimes that hurts, sometimes it’s pleasure, sometimes it’s pain.
So, what about a Las Vegas residency? Don’t rule it out. “We’re exploring that for sure,” Nick said. “I think it’d be a lot of fun to have one place for us to go and shake things up out in Vegas! Not saying anything, but if anyone’s been to a BSB show, they know we bring the fire — and we have a lot of energy! It’d be awesome to light up Vegas!”
