Congratulations to our boys as they break another record in Japan, topping THREE Oricon charts this week, becoming the foreign artist that has won the most #1 ranking in DVD sales! The LIVE TOUR 2015 WITH DVD and BluRay combined have sold over 135,000+ copies, surpassing even their TREE DVD sales from last year.
All three charts, music DVD, music BluRay and music DVD & BluRay, solidifying their triple crown and escalating them to become the first foreign artist in history to rank #1 so many times on the Oricon charts! “TOHOSHINKI History in Japan Special” on was their first DVD to achieve the coveted #1 ranking in October 2010. Since then, they have gotten six consecutive number 1 rankings, and “TOHOSHINKI LIVE TOUR 2015 WITH” is their 8th Music DVD production that have ranked #1 on the weekly chart.
This tremendous feat was accomplished without any musical show promotions or radio/TV appearances by Tohoshinki! Since Yunho enlisted on July 21, 2015, and Changmin is wrapping up the “Scholar Who Walks the Night” drama, they were unable to promote the DVD themselves, other than a short video message to their official fan club members.
The DVD was filmed in Tokyo the last day of their tour, April 2nd 2015. The BluRay has several offshoot scenes from their tour including Fukuoka, their first leg of the tour. This edition includes documentary on the backstage and excerpts from talks at concerts in the tour. The 2015 WITH tour commemorated their 10th year anniversary since their debut in Japan.
Promotion held by their Avex label included 30/60 second news spots, costume displays at popular, large music stores in Tokyo from worn by Yunho and Changmin during their concerts, the “WITH Tour” truck that drove around Tokyo, which is a popular form of advertising as well as a Yunika Vision Big Screen display in Shibuya at Shinjuku Station, sharing 8 different concert songs at scheduled times.
REFUSE TO LOSE
KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN
We are so proud of our Yunho and Changmin, their foothold in Japan surpasses any other foreign artist, cementing their chart topping rank, and place in history!
