According to ORICON Style daily rank released on July 1st, Tohoshinki’s 28th Japanese single “Stand by U” has been sold for 94,838.
That number placed Tohoshinki as ORICON daily single chart 2nd after Arashi’s “Everything” which is sold for 135,053 on its first day.
Eventhough for this time Tohoshinki missed to get the number 1 spot in ORICON daily, but to compete in local music shares at the same day with idol group Arashi yet still getting a successful result is not easy.
Tohoshinki’s single “Stand by U” consists of 3 songs, including “Tea for Two” which is used as theme song for Nihon TV’s best information program “Miyaneya” and their old single “Sky”. “Stand by U” itself is brought to fulfill the hopes of many fans to listen another sad ballad song after their previous ballad “Bolero”.
Meanwhile, on July 4th and 5th, Tohoshinki will finally close their 4th live tour The Secret Code Concert by holding the last two stages at the great Tokyo Dome.
