The Nobel Prize ceremony isn’t the only soiree Bob Dylan opted to miss this year. The Minnesota legend couldn’t make the Sept. 15 concert recorded for “Tony Bennett at 90: The Best Is Yet to Come,” but in October, he recorded a number in Birmingham that will be included in the special, which also features Elton John, Billy Joel and Lady Gaga.
