Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton joined Pearl Jam to perform his band’s 1977 classic, “Draw The Line”, during the second of two nights at Boston’s Fenway Park on August 7.

“We played this song two nights ago not having any idea that it might be played again,” frontman Eddie Vedder told the crowd, “or the next time we played it, it would be different.

“We get to play this song with a hometown hero and someone I’m just going to meet right now,” as Hamilton walked to center stage to shake the singer’s hand. “Tom Hamilton, everybody!”

“I am so proud to see how my hometown has welcomed these guys,” said Hamilton. “I mean two nights at Fenway…unbelievable.”

Hamilton has been touring with Thin Lizzy this summer and had just returned to the States from a gig in Sweden when he hit the stage.

“24 hours ago I was on stage with Thin Lizzy,” Hamilton tweeted after the concert. “Tonight I got to play Draw the Line with Pearl Jam. How many bands can I join in a weekend?”

Pearl Jam’s 34-song set ran more than 3 hours, with material from their full catalog mixing with covers of tracks by The Ramones, The Who and Neil Young.

The Seattle rockers will wrap up their 2016 tour with two nights at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL on August 20 and 22.
