As part of Swedish film series 'Experiment Ensam (Experiment Alone)'
Bob Dylan

Dubbed rock's poet laureate, Bob Dylan is capable of playing to huge crowds across the globe.

Yet the singer recently decided to play a show for just one person - as part of Swedish film series 'Experiment Ensam (Experiment Alone)'.

The series involves taking highly public events and re-casting for an audience consisting of one solitary fan.

As Rolling Stone report, Bob Dylan performed at Philadelphia's Academy of Music on Sunday (November 23th). Breezing through a short set for Fredrik Wikingsson, the singer performed covers of Buddy Holly's 'Heartbeat' as well as Fats Domino's 'Blueberry Hill' and Chuck Wills's 'It's Too Late (She's Gone)'.

Clearly delighted by the experience, Wikingsson said of the show: "I was smiling so much it was like I was on ecstasy. My jaw hurt for hours afterwards because I couldn't stop smiling."

Bob Dylan is set to release new album 'Shadows In The Night' next year.
