Show Announcements: Cheech And Chong, Laser Spectaculars And More

Ever notice how those angel sculptures on the exterior of Bass Hall sorta look like they're chiefing on enormous brass one-hitters? No? Well, here's betting that Cheech and Chong will make that observation when they perform at the Fort Worth performing arts hall Friday, April 30, 2010.

The dope duo follows up last year's "Light Up America" reunion tour with "Get It Legal!", a partnership with the Marijuana Policy Project that pokes fun at this country's absurd drug prohibition laws in light of Tommy Chong's 2003 federal imprisonment for selling bongs.

Tickets are $39.50 to $49.50 and go on sale Friday through LiveNation at--you guessed it--4:20 p.m. That on-sale time may prove to be a mistake, though, as most of Cheech & Chong's fan base will probably be busy.

And as long as we're on the topic of stoner shows, there are also a couple of Laser Spectaculars in the works at the Majestic Theatre. Saturday, December 26 will feature the music of Pink Floyd, while the following day's laser show pays homage to Michael Jackson. Tickets to each range from $29.50 to $37.50 plus those mellow-harshing Ticketmaster fees.

After the jump are a few other upcoming show announcements.
