The Up In Smoke tour featuring CHEECH & CHONG and WAR, is burning it up all over the country. A Night of Music and Comedy You’ll Never Forget, this tour promises to be the "smokiest" night of the year, featuring all of your favorite WAR hits and all of CHEECH & CHONG's outrageous and hilarious comedy. The Up In Smoke tour is a complete integration of WAR's timeless catalogue, and CHEECH & CHONG's no authority brand of comedy and music.
