Billboard 200 Chart Moves
By Keith Caulfield | April 10, 2015 9:49 PM EDT

Van Halen, Tokyo Dome Live In Concert — No. 20 — Van Halen debuts at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 with its new live album, Tokyo Dome Live In Concert. Remarkably, if the album — its 16th chart entry — goes no higher than No. 20, it will mark the lowest-charting effort for the band in its 37-year career on the tally. Tokyo Dome starts with 31,000 equivalent album units, nearly all from pure album sales. The set was promoted by a two-night performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 30 and 31, and an April 2 visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The gigs were touted as the band’s first U.S. TV performances with singer David Lee Roth. Previous to this week, the only Van Halen title to miss the top 10 was their self-titled debut, which peaked at No. 19 on May 20, 1978 (after debuting at No. 149 on March 11).

The new set is the group’s second live album to chart, following Live: Right Here, Right Now, which debuted and peaked at No. 5 in 1993. That album featured Sammy Hagar on vocals, while the new release boasts Roth, who fronted the band from 1974-1985, later returning in 2006.

Charts mean nothing now as compared to 25 years ago. We all know bands don’t make money off of albums anymore.

No kidding.. albums sales for rock bands are a joke. I’ll be surprised if TD breaks 100k units.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.
