The dudes with a lifelong affinity for Mary Jane and who brought you "Up in Smoke" in 1978 are taking another pass at it in January in Cedar Rapids.
The Up In Smoke tour featuring Cheech & Chong and '70s rockers War is burning up stages all over the country with night after smoky night of comedy and horn-infused funk and soul music. The tour will burn one again on Jan. 22 at the Paramount Theatre.

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 & 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.”
Cheech & Chong’s first film, “Up In Smoke," was the highest-grossing comedy of 1978. 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 has been sharing its timeless music and message of brotherhood and harmony for more than four decades.
