Arashi’s latest live DVD sold 618,000 copies in the first week!

Popular group Arashi released their eighth live DVD, “ARASHI 10-11 TOUR ‘Scene’ ~Kimi to Boku no Miteiru Fukei~ STADIUM” on January 26th, and it’s topped Oricon’s latest weekly DVD ranking. The result might not be especially surprising, but the sales for the first week totaled an amazing 618,000 copies!

This live DVD recorded the live concert from their nation tour at National Olympic Stadium on September 3rd, and it consists of performances for over 40 song, mainly from their latest album, “Boku no Miteiru Fukei” (released in August 2010).

Although Arashi’s previous live DVD, “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5×10” (released in April 2010), which sold 477,000 copies in the first week, was the previous record for the amount of copies sold in the first week, they have now broken their own record with the new live DVD. This also marks the 7th time a music DVD from Arashi has topped the chart, and it’s the 5th consecutive one that has done so.
