In November Fredrik Wikingsson got a private Bob Dylan mini-concert at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music.
Lucky Wikingsson had been picked for an episode of a Swedish film series called “Experiment Ensam” where, according to Rolling Stone, “a lone person takes part in events that are usually reserved for large crowds.”
Dylan and his band perform a cover of Buddy Holly’s “Heartbeat,” a beautiful downbeat version of Fats Domino’s “Blueberry Hill” and Chuck Wills’ “It’s Too Late (She’s Gone).” The mini-concert ends with the blues standard, “Key to the Highway.”
Rolling Stone has a story about this here.
[I just published my rock ‘n’ roll novel, True Love Scars.” Rolling Stone has a great review of my book in a recent issue. Read it here. There’s info about True Love Scars here.]

(i wasn’t allowed to watch it here,caught it on youtube)
This was hugely emotional to watch!!being a huge fan myself,i knew exactly how the emotions must’ve felt to him☺☺☺when i listen to bob with the lights out,it can feel like it’s only me in the room with him and it’s a tearjerking experience!! saying that,i don’t think i’d have liked to be the only person there!!think it would have been too overwhelming!!
I’ve added the YouTube version. And yes, it’s intense for sure. I wish we could hear the entire songs.
