Laibach conducted its first tour of North America in 1989, two years before the disintegration of their mother country, Yugoslavia. It was called Sympathy for the Devil Tour. The following two extensive tours were US – Capital Tour in 1992 and Jesus Christ Superstars Tour in 1997. Then came the attack on WTC, the avenging wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, and the universal offensive against terrorism, tragedies which radically marked modern times and tightened the doors to the USA. Despite that, in election year 2004, in a tensely divided atmosphere between President Bush and Democratic candidate Kerry, Laibach successfully slipped once again into the country to carry out their 15-concert North American tour. The first stop was in Washington, D.C., only seconds away from the White House and only one day after the election results had been announced. There was a feeling of uneasiness in the air, dark clouds covered the sky and it rained all day. This film is a unique document of the traumatic post-election situation in USA, the country deeply divided by two opposing political and cultural options. The tour was named The Divided States of America Tour.
