It'll be a somewhat sad Nick Carter who comes to town this weekend.

The Backstreet Boys member is still reeling from the surprise death on Jan. 31 of his younger sister Leslie Carter, in upstate New York. He's decided to go on with his solo tour, however, telling fans via a statement that, "Performing is cathartic to me and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform."

But Carter, 31 whose second solo album, "I'm Taking Off," came out in 2011 chose not to attend his sister's funeral last weekend, blaming family issues for his decision. He told TMZ that, "I wanted to be at my sister's funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic. There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive, and focused."

Nick Carter, the MIDI Mafia and Guinevere perform Friday, Feb. 10, at the Crofoot Ballroom, 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of show.
