Bill Murray And Steve Buscemi Perform Bob Dylan Songs At Concert Celebrating Rock Icon’s 77th Birthday

Bob Dylan celebrated his 77th birthday on Thursday, and that same night a number of celebrity fans paid tribute to the rock icon at a celebratory concert that replicated one of Dylan’s most notable performances.

Held at New York’s Town Hall — the venue where Dylan performed a legendary 1963 show shortly before the release of his second album — the concert was titled “Tomorrow Is A Long Time” and reproduced the show, song for song, with a variety of stars performing.

As Variety reports, the eclectic mix of performers at the show included The Milk Carton Kids, Emily Haines, Laurie Anderson, Peter Wolf, Natalie Cressman, Bob Neuwirth, Gina Gershon, Steve Buscemi and Bill Murray.

For his portion of the show, “Boardwalk Empire” star Buscemi put a unique spin on Dylan’s “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues”.

Meanwhile, Murray was joined by musician Joan Wasser (a.ka. Joan As Police Woman, her stage name), who accompanied on guitar, for an iconoclastic version of Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”. Watch:
