Acclaimed television and film star Hugh Laurie is bringing his musical talents back to the Twin Cities, the Hennepin Theatre Trust says.

The HTT announced Tuesday that the actor -- who played the hopelessly cranky but brilliant Dr. Gregory House on the Fox TV drama "House M.D." from 2004 to 2012 -- will be playing with his Copper Bottom Band at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis Oct. 15.

Laurie played to a sold-out Pantages crowd in 2012 following the release of his hit debut album "Let Them Talk."

In addition to his acting skills, Laurie is also a passionate pianist and vocalist.

Laurie and his group are touring in support of his second album, "Didn't It Rain," which was just released by Warner Bros. Records.

Tickets are $48.50 to $58.50 and go on sale Friday.

Fans can get a preview of the performer's musical side with "Hugh Laurie: Live on the Queen Mary," which is airing locally on Twin Cities Public Television this month.

In addition to his latest musical project, Laurie will next star in the sci-fi mystery "Tomorrowland" opposite George Clooney.

The film is scheduled to be released in theaters Dec. 12, 2014.
