It will be one smokin’ night when WAR and Cheech & Chong visit The Arena at Gwinnett Center this summer.

The “Up in Smoke” tour will hit the venue at 8 p.m. June 13. Tickets are $35-$75 and on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 23 via GwinnettCenter.com, The Arena at Gwinnett Center Box Office or by calling 770-626-2464.

The show will begin with War performing classic rock hits such as “Why Can’t We Be Friends” and “Low Rider,” followed by Cheech and Chong offering their most “infamous” songs (backed by War), including “Mexican Americans” and “Earache My Eye.”

The pairing of War and C&C isn’t a new development. The same tour (along with Tower of Power) played Chastain Park Amphitheatre in 2013, but it’s a partnership that apparently keeps on giving.

Last year, War released its first studio album in 20 years, “Evolutionary,” which featured a collaboration with the comedy duo.
