Everyone wants a piece of Namie Amuro before she retires on September 16. While time usually erodes a singer's popularity, Amuro's star continues to shine brighter than ever.
On August 31, Oricon announced that Amuro's live tour DVD & Blu-Ray "namie amuro Final Tour 2018 ~Finally~" has sold 1,091,000 copies during its first 3 days on sale.
This is the first time any DVD & Blu-ray release has ever sold a million copies in a 3 day period, setting the record for the fast-selling DVD & Blu-ray release.
The tour has already set the record for largest attendance for a solo artist. 750,000 people came out in Japan to see Amuro's final tour before retirement. An additional 50,000 people attended concerts held outside of Japan.
