Al Pacino fans: This night’s for you.

The Hollywood legend is coming to Miami Beach for a rare, one night only show.

“An Evening With Pacino” is set for Sept. 15 at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater; tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday (info below).

So what will Pacino chat about all night? A lot. We’re talking a career spanning 50 plus years. He’s received an Academy Award, two Tony Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, a British Academy Film Award, four Golden Globe Awards, even the National Medal of Arts.

Naturally, there’s also the Miami connection: his turn as the unforgettable character Tony Montana in Scarface.

The show will include clips, and a chance to speak directly with the man himself during an audience question and answer session.

One Q you may want to put forth: Pacino is set to move forward on an HBO film about the Penn State football scandal, with Pacino playing Joe Paterno. Barry Levinson is set to direct.

Reserved tickets for “An Evening With Pacino” are $83.50, $193.50 and $303.50 (not a typo!).

Hold onto your hats. Organizers say a limited number of exclusive VIP seats (92, to be exact), are also available. Perfect for those with fat bank accounts. The price: $1,154. This includes the ticket, a meet and greet with Pacino, as well as access to an exclusive cocktail reception with him prior to the show. Our advice: Drink up!

All tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, June 9 at LiveNation.com or charge by phone 800-745-3000 and at the Fillmore box office.
