In honour of Dylan's 77th birthday
The event was called ‘Tomorrow is a Long Time’ and was produced by Hal Willner. The evening aimed to be a reproduction, song for song, of Dylan’s April 1963 gig at the same venue.
The star-studded event saw performances from the likes of Laurie Anderson, Emily Haines, Mark Kozelek, Nels Cline, Peter Wolf, and Natalie Cressman.
Steve Buscemi helped out with a performance of ‘Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues’, while Bill Murray gave his own rendition of ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right’. You can watch fan-filmed footage of the performances below.

The Heaven’s Door line included three whiskeys – a straight rye, a straight bourbon, and double-barrelled whiskey.
“We both [Dylan and Bushala] wanted to create a collection of American whiskeys that, in their own way, tell a story,” a statement read. “I’ve been travelling for decades, and I’ve been able to try some of the best spirits that the world of whiskey has to offer. This is great whiskey.”
The label for the whiskeys features the silhouettes of wagon wheels and crows. The standard line of Heaven’s Door will be for sale for $50-$80 (£36-£58) a bottle. Every year, a limited edition Bootleg Series will be released in ceramic bottles decorated with the musician’s oil and watercolour paintings. The first one will be released next year and will cost approximately $300 (£218).
