Though there have been some successful stoner movies over the years, including flicks like Pineapple Express and Half Baked, none of the stars from such films have reached the iconic status of Cheech and Chong. Over the course of their careers this dynamic duo have redefined standup comedy and the buddy flick. They have also exposed people of all walks of life to marijuana counterculture, expanding and challenging the general perception of what it means to be a stoner. This comedic (and political) team has won a Grammy, opened for the Rolling Stones, advocated legalization, and starred in many top-grossing hit comedies. After a 25-year hiatus, the two reteamed for the massively successful Light Up America tour. They'll return to Minnesota in what Tommy Chong claims is his last tour before retirement, so pour a little bong water on the ground (you were going to spill anyway when you got up to get popcorn), and come out to see this stoner swan song.
