Why Did Bob Dylan Pay A Visit To Birmingham’s WorkPlay On Friday?

Bob Dylan likes WorkPlay.

How do we know? He told owner Tom Williams so on Friday, during a video shoot at the venue’s theater.

Dylan, 75, one of the most famous names in the rock world, spent about four hours at the Birmingham entertainment complex, filming a video to commemorate Tony Bennett’s 90th birthday.

According to Williams, the video will be part of an NBC TV special, “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come.” The two-hour show, which airs December 20, also includes performances by Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and other celebrities.
