Iconic comedy duo Cheech and Chong engulf audiences in non-carcinogenic giggles on their first tour in over 25 years. After nine hit albums, eight hit movies, and the suspicion of countless K-9 units, Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong return to mix new bits with classic routines such as “Where’s Dave” and “Let’s Make a Dope Deal.” The Grande Exposition Hall's cutting-edge audiovisual equipment ensures that the loopy, hazy atmosphere the pair generates is transmitted with crystal-clear fidelity to the 1,600-seat space.

Boy-band juggernaut and Nickelodeon sensation Big Time Rush shines like the sun’s sons as its hotly anticipated Big Time Summer Tour enraptures flocks of fans with pop bliss. The fab foursome, known as BTR to fans and preteen stenographers, first snatched the hearts of millions with its eponymous TV show, recognized as the most-watched live-action series in Nickelodeon’s history. On the group's choreographed carnival of a tour, expert hoofer and crooner Kendall Schmidt leads the affable cast of personalities, which includes James (the ladies' man), Carlos (the joker), and Logan (the smarty warty), through hits from its gold debut, BTR. Their chart-topping sophomore album, Elevate, will also see its hooky anthems represented, such as “Music Sounds Better With U” and “All Over Again.” Expect elastic dance moves from the dapper quadratic and possible numbers from the just-released Big Time Movie, in which BTR covers tunes by obscure boy band The Beatles. Wunderkind Rachel Crow of The X-Factor fame and Australian heartthrob Cody Simpson start the show with peppy rallies and aural morality plays about how love can be tough and why stealing your dad’s head to sneak into R-rated movies isn’t cool.
