TVXQ have added another new record to their repertoire in Japan.
The duo’s new ‘LIVE TOUR 2012~TONE~’ DVD, which was released on the 25th of July, has sold approximately 151,000 copies in its first week, making it the most sold DVD for the week on Oricon’s daily and weekly DVD charts.
This is the fourth time TVXQ has topped Oricon’s weekly DVD charts, breaking their own previous record for the most no.1 spots in the DVD charts for foreign artistes. They have also become the first foreign artistes to have two consecutive productions top the DVD charts.
On the 1st of August, Oricon reported on TVXQ’s remarkable activities with an article titled, ‘TVXQ become the First Foreign Artistes To Have Two Consecutive DVDs Top the Charts!’
The group’s most recent DVD contains footage from TVXQ’s concert at Tokyo Dome on the 15th of April, which was part of the ‘TVXQ LIVE TOUR 2012~TONE~’ concert tour that passed through 11 cities and attracted a total of 550,000 people in 26 concerts.
TVXQ broke another record in July with their single ‘ANDROID’ when it became their 11th single to top the Oricon weekly single charts. Not only this, but they are also the foreign artistes who have sold the most singles in Japan with over 3.1 million singles sold. It seems that TVXQ keep rewriting Oricon history every time they release a new album.
Meanwhile, TVXQ will be participating in the SMTOWN LIVE WORLD TOUR III in Tokyo Dome on the 4th and 5th of August.
