Tickets go on sale next week for Light Up America 2008, a Cheech and Chong reunion tour. Unbelievable. Must be a sign of the apocolypse, but then again, the Stones, the Eagles and few others in between made "when hell freezes over," a negotiation tool.
Marin has said the duo tried to reunite in the past, but always fought.
"It takes about 3 minutes for that to happen. There's this veiled hatred," he said. "We've kind of resolved that.. .. We've gotten to the age where we don't feel like fighting anymore, because the end is a lot closer than the beginning."
That, and the possibilty of making money, can make hell freeze over, and help Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong love each other. Maybe they'll end each show with a rousing rendition of Kumbaya.
So far Phoenix is the only Arizona city on the tour schedule, for Nov. 12.
