Can you really have a comeback tour when you’re only 25? If you started performing when you were 7, then yes you can.

Singer Aaron Carter first sang with the band Dead End at age 7. By age 10, he had made his first solo appearance on quite a large scale – opening for his brother Nick’s band, the Backstreet Boys. He quickly released his self-titled debut disc and then went on to a youthful career in music (“Aaron’s Party Come Get It” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq”) and television (with guest roles on shows including “Lizzie McGuire” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”). Later he appeared on stage (“The Fantasticks”) and recently branched out to reality TV as a star of “The House of Carter” and competing on “Dancing With the Stars” and “Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.”

This year, Carter’s focus has been back on music. His “After Party Tour,” dubbed his comeback tour, stops Friday at the Forvm in the Maple Entertainment Complex (4224 Maple Road, Amherst). Opening is Verse, Justin Levinson and J3. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 advance, $25 the day of the show and $50 for VIP tix. Visit www.ticketweb.com or call 831-3271.
