“Aaron’s Party” will return to the Blue Moose on Saturday.

Aaron Carter, one of the most prolific teenage celebrities of the ’90s, will perform at the downtown bar and music venue, 211 Iowa Ave., at 7 p.m. Saturday. This will be his second Iowa City concert in two years.

The brother of ’N Sync member Nick Carter, Aaron Carter’s musical career began at the age of 7 as the chirpy lead vocalist for the band Dead End. Before long, Aaron Carter garnered stardom on his own accord, releasing such catchy singles as “Crush On You,” “I Want Candy,” and, of course, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).” He remains the youngest male solo artist to have four top-40 singles.

Today, Carter is 27 and still sports his signature bleached blond hair and hip-hop-inspired fashions. After performing on the ninth season of “Dancing with the Stars,” (he received fifth place), completing a month of rehab and performing in the successful Broadway play The Fantastiks in 2011, and filing for bankruptcy in 2013, Carter reignited his musical career in 2014, releasing the single “Ooh Wee” with rapper Pat Solo.

He plans to release an album this year — his first in 13 years — produced by Grammy-winning producer Aaron Pearce.

Carter was last in Iowa City on Oct. 6, 2013, and performed to a sold-out crowd at the Blue Moose.

Tickets for Saturday’s show can be purchased in advance for $15. Patrons can add a VIP meet-and-greet package for $65, which includes an opportunity to meet Carter after the show, take pictures, and get merchandise and memorabilia signed — so don’t forget your 15-year-old copy of the CD Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).
