We're so loyal to U2

No actually, this is kind of deserved I really love this album and everyone around me in Holland is positive about it too, especially he casuals and non-fans. I hope they stay up there for a while.

I also found that SOI
Quote:
is U2‘s eighth Number One LP as it debuts at the top of the French albums chart with 21,771 copies sold in 3 days (it was released last Friday). The band’s other chart-toppers were The Joshua Tree (for 20 consecutive weeks from April to August 1987), Achtung Baby (for two weeks in March 1992), Zooropa (for one week in July 1993), Pop (for one week in March 1997), All That You Can’t Leave Behind (for one week in November 2000), How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (for one week in November 2004) and No Line On The Horizon (for one week in March 2009). The latter had opened with 63,109 CDs sold.

Also in France, U2 360 DVD re-enters chart at #5; U218 Singles back catalog at #55.

Debuts at #2 in Sweden's Oct 16 chart, which apparently counted it's 1st 2 days of sales.

Debuts at #1 on Dutch charts, with U218 singles rising from #100 to #33.
dutchcharts.nl - Dutch charts portal

Looks like most countries will update between October 19-21.

Sorry, cross-posting


What's absolutely crazy is the disparity between sales in Europe and the U.S. this time. I mean, almost 22k sold in FRANCE!! And that's in 3 days?? I'm going by the info in the other new thread.

I mean to think that France is outselling the entire US is just astonishing. I think the UK will have about equal numbers to the U.S. when usually they have about 1/3rd the sales.

So either their promo tour is REALLY working, or it shows the difference in buying habits and iTunes use in the different countries.

Also - just noticing that France bought nearly as many copies of SOI as NLOTH!!! 22k in 3 days, vs 69k in 7 days. Just mindboggling really. Does no one use iTunes in France???

To me, this is much crazier. Hit this link and you'll see how individual songs from SOI are doing worldwide on i-tunes only. It's for the past 24 hours only. At various times this past week, 4 different songs from SOI have been the #1 PAID download from i-tunes in a 24 hour period. Just look at how many countries and songs, free to everyone who has i-tunes, have those same, free songs being paid for one at a time. That's CRAZY!

The link is to U2's performance on i-tunes. It shows the top paid downloaded songs and albums for U2. You can click on "ALBUMS" to see that all U2 albums are charting on i-tunes somewhere, or then hit "SONGS" to see the same thing. U2 is up to #4 overall as the most downloaded artist on i-tunes, steadily rising all week.

I've been looking at the iTunes charts all week. Fascinating to see how U2's doing against other artists, especially after the free stunt.
