AAP logoAAP 18/09/2016 By Danielle McGrane

Patti Smith will be touring her seminal 1975 album Horses in Melbourne and Sydney when she comes Down Under to play Bluesfest.

With two members from the original group who recorded the album still in her band, Lenny Kaye and Jay Dee Daugherty, the two sideshows will be the closest the punk icon can come to replicating the record.

It's Smith's first tour of Australia in eight years.

Alongside Smith's shows, fellow Bluesfest artists The Lumineers, Bonnie Raitt, Snarky Puppy and Andrew Bird will also play solo shows around the country in April.

Patti Smith tour dates:

April 9 - State Theatre, Sydney

April 16 - Hamer Hall, Melbourne

Bluesfest takes place at Byron Bay, NSW from April 13 - 17
