Dead Men Don't Tour
Rodriguez in South Africa 1998
(TV Documentary)

Tonia Selley directed a wonderful documentary of the South African tour. It was broadcast on SABC 3 at 9.30pm on the 5th July 2001 just after 'Ripley's Believe Or Not' (yes, really!). The Forum web board was flooded with messages for the next few days.

This video is awesome! Wonderful concert footage, backstage antics, interviews with Craig and Sugar, Rodriguez and his family, the promoters, the fans and the musicians.

All live footage was filmed at the concerts in Pretoria, Durban and the Blues Room in Johannesburg.

The soundtrack for the documentary is based on the Live Fact CD with video collages from the various performances. The concert footage is linked with interviews, backstage antics, rehearsals, etc.
