Nick Carter Sobs as Backstreet Boys Honor Aaron Carter Onstage

One fan, Jon D Barker, shared his account of the concert with E! News, calling the event “very emotional.”

“During their last single from DNA, the music video was playing on the top screen,” Jon told E! News after the show. “The ending images of the video were the photos Nick had shared on Twitter recently to crowd applause, before the band took some time to talk about Aaron’s passing and console Nick. Everyone was crying as you imagine.”

Before his performance, Nick, 42, shared a message on Twitter and Instagram in memory of Aaron, saying his “heart has been broken.”

“Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded,” he wrote alongside a series of throwback photos of the siblings. “I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz., now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth.”
