Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal Tour with Special Guest Shelby Chong Reunite in the I.E.

San Manuel Indian Nation – Thursday, March 15, 2012, San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino welcomes the Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal Tour with Special Guest Shelby Chong. Tickets are on sale today and available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $25, $35 and $45.

On the short list of comedy’s all-time greatest duos, Cheech & Chong have been making people laugh until they cry since breaking out in the seventies with immortal routines like “Basketball Jones.” Thirty-plus years later, and after releasing classic films like “Up in Smoke,” the legends are back on-stage once again.

Cheech & Chong: Get It Legal tour is the follow-up to their reunion tour, Cheech & Chong: Light Up America, in which they performed together for the first time in over 25 years. Their performance in San Antonio, Texas was filmed and released as Cheech and Chong’s: Hey Watch This.

Successful beyond their wildest dreams, Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holdsbarred comedy routines. They represent a lifestyle and are the originators of the “stoner film” as a genre. Their resume includes the success of nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, box office records, and multiple Grammy® Award nominations.

Cheech, from the barrios of East L.A., and Chong, a Canadian native, met in Vancouver, Canada at a club that Chong owned. Two years later, when the club shut down, the duo teamed up and set out on long road trips performing one-night stands, finally ending up in California because they were tired of cold weather. They performed all over L.A. and were discovered while performing at The Troubadour by a record executive and were eventually signed.

Every Thursday night with headliner entertainment, San Manuel gives away $1,000 just for seeing the show. To be eligible to win, guests only need a ticket to the show, a Club Serrano card and to be 21 or older. Guests can enter beginning at noon on such days. Three drawings will be held on those nights: $250 at 7:20 p.m., $250 at 10:00 p.m. and $500 at 11:00 p.m.

Winners must be present.
