Nick Carter has two more stops on his tour, but after that the singer plans on taking some time off to grieve following the death of his sister ... sources close to Carter tell TMZ.

According to our sources, Carter will play the last two tour dates (tonight in Chicago and tomorrow in Columbus) in memory of his sister Leslie, who passed away on January 31.

After that, we're told Nick will not schedule any more appearances ... and will take a couple of weeks to go off and deal with his sister's death. Our sources say Nick is still dealing with the fact that he missed her funeral.

As TMZ previously reported, the Carter family believes Leslie overdosed on prescription drugs.

Grieving has to be scheduled? Who cares about naming the concerts after her? When this really hits you could be in danger of a mental breakdown. Find some real support.

I don't know how celebrities do it...continue working after the loss of a loved one. If I had lost my sister when he did (about 2 weeks ago), I still wouldn't be able to function, let alone miss her funeral to do some stupid tour that mean nothing.

Quick Question: What tour is Nick Carter performing...is there a washed-up, has-been where are they now tour?

Stop judging him! you people know nothing about him or his family situation! i saw him in concert on Feb 4 in Philly. He wasn't himself trust me. He cried during some songs and seemed upset. ya he lost his sister, but singing is his life. We his fans are everything to him. we are his energy, motivation, and love. Please don't disrespect nick for he did nothing to any of you. yes in fact he didn't know about her funeral otherwise he would have been there. imagine u in his shoes. Please stop judging him! trust me it hit him. his allentown show got canceled because it was too much for him. so see it hits people differently! please stop judging others before you know the TRUE facts!

There is no excuse for missing your sisters funeral. Can't defend him for that no matter how you want to look at it. He is a self centered person. Anyone trying to defend him has to be starstruck or just plain stupid.
