Arashi send total music DVD sales to 4 million for the first time ever

10:51 JST February 9, 2011 7 comments

Arashi have sold almost twice as many music DVDs as any other music artist in Japan over their career, reports Oricon.


Figures released by Oricon’s weekly charts have revealed Arashi’s latest music DVD “ARASHI 10-11 TOUR “Scene” ~君と僕の見ている風景 (Kimi to Boku no Miteiru Fukei)~ STADIUM” had sold 59,000 copies in its second week of sales.  Adding this number to the DVD’s first week sales of 618,000 and their previous 10 DVD sales, the total had surpassed four million copies.  It is the first time an artist’s music DVD sales have hit four million over their career in Japan.


Arashi had taken over the number one spot for overall music DVD sales in 2010 after their last DVD “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 X 10″ passed the record set by girl’s band Morning Musume.


The top three artist records are now:

1. Arashi – 4.01 million

2. Morning Musume – 2.29 million

3. Ayumi Hamasaki – 2.23 million

Arashi’s latest DVD not only makes its debut at number 1 on the weekly charts, it has sold more than any other music DVD in Japanese history, figures released on February 2 show, reports Oricon and Mainichi Shimbun Digital.


The group’s eighth DVD, “ARASHI 10-11 TOUR “Scene”  ~君と僕が見ている風景(Kimi to Boku ga Miteiru Fukei)~ STADIUM”, sold 618,000 copies in its first week of sales.  The figure is much larger than their last DVD, “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5 X 10″, which had sold 477,000 copies in its first week of sales last April.

It is also the first time music DVD sales have topped 600,000 in its first week.


The group’s latest release is their fifth consecutive number 1, and their seventh number 1 in total.


The DVD shows footage from the group’s concert at the National Stadium in Tokyo on September 3 2010, where Arashi performed 40 songs for their fans.
