This time around the comedy team is teaming up with the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), to promote policy change through laughter.
Presented by Live Nation, the “Cheech and Chong: Get It Legal!” tour currently lists shows in 17 North American cities. It all starts in Boulder at the Macky Auditorium Jan. 16. Indianapolis is next on the itinerary, showing the duo playing the Murat Theatre Jan. 22.
Next up is Baltimore at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Jan. 23; followed by Saskatoon at TCU Place Jan. 30 and Regina at Conexus Arts Centre Jan. 31.
Other stops include Bellingham, Wash. (Feb. 11); Portland, Ore. (Feb. 12); Santa Barbara (March 5); Tampa (March 12); Minneapolis (March 26) and Rockford (March 27), while April dates include shows in Ann Arbor, Louisville, Washington, D.C., Bakersfield, Phoenix and Fort Worth.
Chong spouse Shelby and DJ Joey Mojo appear on all dates.
For those of you feeling a little hazy when it comes to short-term memory, the “Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal!” tour is a follow up to the team’s successful “Light Up America” reunion tour. However, you can relive those memories when a DVD of the pair’s San Antonio show – “Cheech and Chong’s Hey Watch This” is released next April.
This time the funny guys have partnered with the Marijuana Policy Project to focus attention on “the harm caused by marijuana prohibition and the urgent need for different, more sensible marijuana laws.”
Or, as Tommy Chong said: “Want to make a change? Come to a Cheech and Chong show. It’s time to get it legal, before it’s too late.”
