One of the many famous skits by a great duo Cheech and Chong. And First Bank Center had the comedy duo of Cheech and Chong on stage Saturday night along with the music by WAR.

Saturday night the famous comedy duo and music were combined on one stage as the Up In Smoke Tour came to Colorado. This has been described as a tour of pure genius.

Cheech and Chong have been around for a long time. Starting out in the early 1970’s they have gained notoriety with many fans who fell in love with their hippy comedy and their love for marijuana. Things have not changed. And this tour was perfect for Colorado since the legalization of marijuana. Combine the jokes with the award winning music by WAR and this night could simply be the most prodigious night Fist Bank Center has seen in a while.

But this is not the first time that WAR has teamed up with good friends Cheech and Chong. One of the award winning hits WAR had in 1975 was “Lowrider”. This was the opening song in Cheech and Chongs movie “Up In Smoke” in 1978. And more songs were in the soundtrack to become a number one seller of soundtracks back in 1978.

Cheech and Chong combining their talents with the musical talents of WAR, have created a virtuoso tour that will be remembered for a long time.
