Journey have done something that they never did with famed frontman Steve Perry – They have the No. 1 release on the Billboard Top Music Video Sales chart.

Filmed March 14 in the Philippenes, the 2-DVD set Live in Manila documents the homecoming concert for Journey singer Arnel Pineda.

The band’s 2005 DVD release Live in Houston 1981 – The Escape Tour peaked at No. 9 on the charts, and featured Perry fronting the band at what many believe to be their most acclaimed era.

The new set features two DVDs and more than two hours of classic favorites, as well as selections from the band’s 2008 studio release Revelation, their first with Pineda.

Revelation is the eleventh Journey album to have been certified platinum, selling more than one million copies in America. In the fall of 2008, the Journey classic “Don’t Stop Believin'” became the most downloaded catalog song in history, approaching 3.0 million in sales according to Nielsen SoundScan.

As is the case with Revelation, Live in Manila is being sold exclusively at Wal-Marts in North America.
