The iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical and counter-culture routines. 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. For Cheech & Chong’s 2014 tour, they’re joined by multi-platinum-selling WAR, the original street band that’s been sharing its timeless music and message of brotherhood and harmony for more than four decades before millions across the globe. Some of their hits include “Why Can’t We Be Friends” and “Low Rider.”

Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits. Founded in 1976, the band is comprised of Mick Jones, Kelly Hansen, Jeff Pilson and Tom Gimbel. Their debut album propelled the group onto the music scene and featured hits such as “Feels Like The First Time” and “Cold As Ice.” Their fifth album, Agent Provocateur, gave the world the incredible #1 global hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is.” In 2013, Jones was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the band released Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits. The band continues to produce sold out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million.
