Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton Hams It Up For Boston Fundraiser
There’s no getting away from it. This dude does indeed look like a lady. Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton is to dress up as Katy ‘I Kissed A Girl’ Perry for an upcoming benefit show in the band’s hometown of Boston.
The event – dubbed Banned In Boston – is a once-a-year extravaganza that raises a big chunk of the budget for youth-development scheme Urban Improv.
Hamilton will perform I Touched Michelle, a takeoff on Perry’s single I Kissed a Girl.
Hamilton claims to know Perry’s song well: “My daughter played it non-stop for a while there,” he said.
It appears that Hamilton is always happy to dress in drag for the Urban Improv comedians who write the annual benefit show.
“I’ve been Laura Bush, I think I’ve been Barbara Bush, and I think I was Camilla Parker-Bowles,” he said.
Hamilton’s number, a take on Michelle Obama’s trip to London, has him wearing what he describes as “a nice gown – a nice pink satin gown – with a little bit of a cape effect, and a wig”.
But Hamilton hasn’t always dressed up in drag for the event. Two years ago he was Borat. (Check out the video here; Hamilton appears at the 1.30 mark.)
Banned In Boston takes place this Wednesday (April 29).
