October 15, 2009
Film Capturing Filipino Singer's Triumphant Homecoming has 2nd Best Debut Sales Week of 2009
Journey's two-DVD Live In Manila, capturing the band's historic concert in Manila, Philippines earlier this year, debuts at the top of Billboard's Top Music Video Sales chart , marking the first time the band has topped this chart. Journey's 2005 release Live In Houston 1981 - The Escape Tour peaked at number nine.
Performing more than two hours' worth of classic favorites, as well as new hits from the band's latest album Revelation, Live In Manila documents the triumphant homecoming of the band's singer Arnel Pineda on March 14, 2009.
Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, and Deen Castronovo returned to Pineda's homeland in March to introduce him as their new lead singer to a crowd of nearly 30,000. By the time of the Manila concert, more than 800,000 copies of Revelation - the band's first album with Arnel - had been sold, and were supported with sold-out shows all over the world.
The Live In Manila DVD, like Revelation, is being sold exclusively at Walmart in North America.
