Get ready to party with America’s favorite stoners, as Cheech, Chong, and special guest, Shelby Chong light up the night on Saturday, June 25, at Thunder Mountain Amphitheatre. The variety show will include a little bit of music, a little bit of comedy, lots of laughing, and no doubt lots of smoke in the air. If there’s three people who should be excited to perform in Colorado, it’s these three, and Loveland couldn’t be happier to welcome them.
The iconic comedy duo consists of Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong, both of whom have starred in numerous movies that highlight the cannabis culture and their love for it. Between 1972 and 1985, the duo released nine albums and were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy for Best Comedy Album. Their first movie, “Up In Smoke,” was the highest grossing comedy of 1978, and paved the way for seven more films to follow. Having gained a huge following since beginning their pot-head shenanigans back in the ’70s, the pair decided to start taking their show on the road, performing live stand-up shows to fans of all ages around the country. Shelby Chong has been performing comedy routines on-stage since 1996, and has also dabbled in acting, appearing in Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie (1980), Nice Dreams (1981) and Things Are Tough All Over (1982). Shelby was associate producer for Still Smokin’ (1983), and Cheech & Chong’s The Corsican Brothers (1984), but is better known as Tommy’s wife and favorite co-star. Her outrageous and sassy humor that comes out at live shows is guaranteed to keep the audience laughing uncontrollably all night long – especially when featured alongside her two hilarious partners in crime.
The trio are scheduled to take the stage at 7 p.m., with gates generally opening about 90 minutes prior to showtime. Thunder Mountain Amphitheatre is located at 4270 Byrd Drive in Loveland. Tickets are $35 if you purchase them before the show or $45 if you wait ’til the day of. All ages are welcome to attend and children under the age of 10-years-old are allowed free admission when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.
