Dio Scores Highest Chart Debut of the Soundscan Era (Top Story)
The first-ever release from the newly formed Niji Entertainment Group, 'Dio at Donington' scanned a total of 5,836 units in its first week, resulting in Dio's best Billboard charting debut ever in the Soundscan era.
As a result, the album - which features a pair of vintage, kick-ass Dio concert performances from 1983 and 1987 - will debut at #98 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. Additionally, Dio went from #5 to #1 (with a bullet) on the CMJ Loud Rock Radio Chart this week. -
