EXODUS: 'Desperados Stagedive Special' To Air On Germany's VIVA

A documentary chronicling EXODUS' April 2012 South American tour will air in two parts on the German music TV channel VIVA.

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.

Part 1 of "Desperados Stagedive Special" will air on Thursday, November 15 at 1:05 a.m. CET (with a repeat airing scheduled for Sunday, November 18 at 1:15 a.m. CET).

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.
