Jackson Rancheria welcomes Cheech & Chong, with Shelby Chong, and WAR to the Jackson Rancheria Outdoor Venue, on Thursday, August 28 at 8 p.m.

As an iconic comedy duo, Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously satirical, counter-culture comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong’s success began on the stand-up comedy circuit, which led to nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, earning multiple Grammy nominations and awards. Their second album, Big Bambu, was the biggest-selling comedy record of all time, and has remained stunningly successful. Cheech & Chong transitioned to film in 1978 with the release of the notoriously famous film, “Up In Smoke.” It grossed $100 million in the box office and is still referenced in pop culture. Now the two comedians have reunited for the Cheech & Chong: Up in Smoke Tour.

WAR was founded in 1969 to promote peace and brotherhood in a time of anti-Vietnam America. Through its music, the band “spoke out against racism, hunger, gangs and crimes.” With its hit singles, “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” “Slippin’ Into Darkness,” and “Don’t Let No One Get You Down,” the band proved to be centered around the evolution of people. 

Will Call opens at 5 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $20 for Dreamcatcher’s Club members, available only at the Casino Cashier’s Cage and starting at $40 for non-Dreamcatcher’s Club members, available at the Casino Cashier’s Cage or online at JacksonCasino.com.

Dreamcatcher’s Club members will receive half off their tickets if they are purchased at the Casino Cashier’s Cage.  

Must be 21 years of age or older to attend.
