Bob Dylan Performs Concert To One Man

Every artist has their dip in popularity, but we'd never have though Bob Dylan would have plumbed these depths: playing a full concert to just one person in Philadelphia.

But before you start thinking that the legendary singer-songwriter has lost his touch - it was all part of a Swedish TV series. Experiment Ensam (Experiment Alone) sees individuals enjoy experiences that are usually built for large audiences, exploring the nuances of social gatherings and norms. Other programs in the series have seen people go to a comedy show and karaoke night on their own.

The lucky person who enjoyed a personal concert from Bob Dylan at the Philadelphia Academy of Music in November was long-time fan Fredrik Wilkingsson. 

"I've seen him 20 times, but this time he might notice me" he joked before the gig; he politely applauded each song in the set, with Dylan telling him at the end "you can come any time".

You can watch a 15 minute clip of the experience below, and read about Dylan's forthcoming new record in our 15 Albums To Hear in 2015.
