The Up In Smoke Tour featuring Cheech & Chong and War is burning up stages all over the country with night after smoky night of “no authority” comedy and horn-infused funk and soul music. The party begins with War blasting hits like “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider” and “Cisco Kid,” then progresses into a combination of Cheech and Chong’s most infamous songs (backed up by War) like “Earache My Eye,” “Basketball Jones,” “Mexican Americans,” and some of the duo’s most iconic comedic skits such as “Dave’s Not Here,” “Santa Clause and His Magic Dust,” and “Sister Mary Elephant.”
In conjunction with the tour, War released its first studio album in 20 years, “Evolutionary,” on May 13, 2014 (Far Out Records/UMe). Featuring special guest collaborations with Cheech & Chong, “Evolutionary” showcases WAR’s multi-ethnic lineup and genre-defying style, combining jazz, rock, funk, soul, R&B and Latin.
Cheech & Chong’s first film, “Up In Smoke,” was the highest grossing comedy of 1978 and topped $100 million at the box office. In 2009, the duo made history when comedy partners Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong announced their first reunion tour in more than 25 years, selling out shows from coast to coast. Multi-platinum-selling WAR, the original street band, has been sharing its timeless music and message of brotherhood and harmony for more than four decades to millions across the globe.
