BACKSTREET Boys will perform at The O2 in London tonight following the death of Aaron Carter.

The former teen heartthrob, who was found dead aged 34 on Saturday, was the younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.

The cult group are due on stage Sunday night as part of their DNA World Tour and their opening act has confirmed that the gig will go ahead.

KnowleDJ wrote on Instagram: "As far as I’m told the show is happening and I will be there tonight to do my set.

"But I’d suggest checking the official sites to be sure just in case anything changes.

"Thanks for your patience and understanding and let’s all pray for Nick and his family."

It comes as Nick responded to his brother's death for the first time on Sunday afternoon.

Nick, 42, wrote in his lengthy Instagram post: "My heart has been broken today.

"Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded."

When Nick’s sister Leslie, who was Aaron's twin sister, died of an overdose in 2012 at the age of just 25, Nick didn’t cancel his tour with the Backstreet Boys and he didn't attend her funeral.
