Grass Reunion

Twenty years on, Cheech and Tommy rekindle the flame

It took ’em 20-plus years, but hippie days are here again now that the legendary smoke-adelic duo of Cheech & Chong – a.k.a. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong – have reunited for their extended Light Up America (and Canada) Tour. Or, as Marin dubs it, “the Felimony Tour, his felony and my alimony.”

Material-wise, classic bits (and opener Shelby Chong) receive preferential treatment, though don’t expect dated outtakes from the pair’s, er, stoned ages. “It’s mostly old stuff with new fillings, like the references are more McCain and Obama as opposed to Clinton and the old stuff we used to talk about,” offers Chong. “The humor hasn’t changed at all. We really get back into the good old Cheech & Chong fodder, and fans are just lovin’ it.”
