Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal In Tour Dates For 2010

LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) –
Comedy visionaries Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong announce
their 2010 North American Tour, Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal, partnering with the Marijuana Policy
Project (MPP) to promote policy change through laughter. The Live Nation-produced tour will kick off on
January 16, 2010 in Boulder, Colorado at the Macky Auditorium.


.
Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal is the follow-up to their hugely successful reunion tour, Cheech &
Chong: Light Up America, where they performed together for the first time in over 25 years. The pop
culture duo performed for more than 100 audiences and quickly became one of the most sought after
shows of 2008-2009. Additionally, their performance in San Antonio, Texas was filmed by the Weinstein
Company and will be released as Cheech and Chong’s: Hey Watch This on 4/20 of next year.
“We had an amazing time last year reconnecting with each other and our fans in a way that felt like it was
part of our DNA, we were meant to be together,” said Cheech Marin. “In 2010 we are looking forward to
doing more classic material that people haven’t seen for years and years, performing more of our songs
and introducing some new bits. We’ve had material brewing separately for the past 25 years,” said
Tommy Chong.

The Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal tour is scheduled to make 17 stops across North America including
Boulder, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Bellingham, Portland, Santa Barbara, Tampa, Minneapolis, Rockford,
Detroit, Louisville, DC, Bakersfield, Phoenix, and Fort Worth with Canadian stops in Regina, and
Saskatoon. Additional dates to be announced soon. Chong’s wife and comedy partner, Shelby Chong,
will open all dates on the tour as well as DJ-Joey Mojo.


Successful beyond their wildest dreams, Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong defined an era with
their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routines. Together, they
represent a lifestyle and are the originators of the “stoner film” as a genre. Their phenomenal success
included nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy
album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade.
Because of the recent attention surrounding the laws in respect to marijuana, Cheech and Chong decided
to name their upcoming tour “Get It Legal” in order to raise awareness for this important topic. By
teaming up with a marijuana policy reform group such as MPP, Cheech and Chong are fusing comedy
and activism as a means of bringing attention to the harm caused by marijuana prohibition and the urgent
need for different, more sensible marijuana laws. “Want to make a change? Come to a Cheech and
Chong show,” says Tommy Chong. “It’s time to get it legal, before it’s too late.”
