EXODUS: ‘Desperados Stagedive Special’ South American Tour Documentary Posted Online
A documentary chronicling EXODUS‘ April 2012 South American tour aired last month in two parts on the German music TV channel VIVA and can now be seen below.
The show’s host, Carlos Martinez, reports exclusively as part of EXODUS‘ road crew. Straight through the jungle, they make their way to the rock clubs of Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires and Chile, including trips to desert islands, ray fishing and much more.
After a short review of Rock In Rio 2011, part 1 starts with the band opening their Brazilian tour at the Metal Open Air in Sao Luis and the Abril Pro Rock festival in Recife. The next destination is the megapolis Sao Paulo, where the first club show takes place and Carlos experiences the tough touring routine from a roadie’s perspective.
In part 2, the band enjoys a few days off to recharge the batteries for the upcoming shows — they use the time for exploring desert islands and for ray fishing. Club shows in Curitiba and Buenos Aires follow. On the road, the Californians have many a memorable experiences and share quite a few anecdotes of their touring life. As a grand finale, EXODUS rock the Metal Fest in Santiago before heading home.
