Patti Smith, the incomparable "Punk Poet Laureate," is bringing her best album to Minneapolis. 

The 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer announced Tuesday that she'll perform her classic 1975 LP, Horses, in its entirety on March 8 at Northrop Auditorium in Minneapolis. 

Tickets -- $40-$55 -- go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, January 13, via the venue box office and website; there'll be a pre-sale Thursday, January 12.

We last heard from Smith last month in Stockholm, Sweden, where she performed (and emotionally flubbed) "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" at Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize acceptance ceremony. Dylan, of course, was not present to hear it.

In 2013, Smith rocked St. Paul's revitalized Union Depot as part of a very strange Levi's-branded event. Her latest album, Banga, came out in 2012; her critically lauded memoir, Just Kids, dropped in 2010.
