Wednesday, November 26, 2014 Bob Dylan has performed for an audience of one in Philadelphia as part of a Swedish film series. Dylan superfan Fredrik Wikingsson, 41, witnessed the show featuring Dylan and his band alone at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music. “I was smiling so much it was like I was on ecstasy. My jaw hurt for hours afterwards because I couldn’t stop smiling,” Wikingsson says. Sunday’s concert was part of film series Experiment Ensam, which chronicles individuals as they experience special events they would normally share with large groups alone. The filmmakers hired out the venue and paid Dylan an undisclosed sum to perform. Wikingsson, whose pal Anders Helgeson is the director of the film, told RollingStone.com: “I have no idea how much it was, but it was probably more than he gets for a normal gig.” The film also features Wikingsson visiting Dylan landmarks in New York’s Greenwich Village.
