Yeah, that's a bit surprising but at least BO 80-90 & JT go back into top 40.

...plus :

BO 90-00 : # 52 (RE) - 91 wks (on top 75)
ATYCLB : # 72 (RE) - 102 wks

...plus - DVD chart :

U2 Go Home # 3 (RE)

...so, overall, quite impressive really.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH YES, only two more weeks until the first of three shows at Croke Park and the hype is already starting to kick in! We'll see if the results will be as good as when U2 played Slane twice in 2001 and nearly every U2 album made the chart.

In UK Bomb is up to # 11 on new HMV chart so I think it might hit the top 30 on official chart tomarrow

HTDAAB definately to re-enter top 30, maybe 20. wouldnt be surprised to see the Joshua Tree make it into the top 50 either.

Btw : according to Patske's recent Belgium thread that chart is only for Flanders (pop : 6M) not whole of Belgium. Apparantly there's a separate chart for the other part of Belgium - Wallonie (pop : 3M). Last week Bomb was # 37 in Wallonie, so I would guess Bomb would actually be about # 30 on whole of Belgium chart with about 120-170K sold.

Just to confirm : COBL sold 24,709 for # 2 spot & also moved up 5 spots to # 2 on airplay chart.

Also, I estimate Bomb sold about 7,500 copies last week in UK. So that's about 1,093,000 now sold overall.

Also, let's not forget U2's backcatalogue :

JT : # 58 (# 75) - 4,000 (est.) copies sold
BO 80-90 : # 61 (# 65) - 3,800 (est.)
BO 90-00 : # 80 (# 124) - 2,500 (est.)
ATYCLB : # 91 (# 111) - 2,000 (est.)
AB : # 135 (RE) - 1,500 (est.)
R&H : # 153 (RE) - 1,300 (est.)

Finally, still on top 200 singles chart :

Vertigo : # 117 (# 121)
Sometimes : # 127 (# 115)

So, overall, U2 shifted A LOT of records in UK last week.

A few updates from around the globe

I don't have time to review too much of the charts around the world, but here are a few highlights for U2.

Latvia
Latvian Airplay Top 50 #576

Week 23, 2005, May 30 - Jun 5

TW LW WC PK Title - Artist
35 42 2 35 City Of Blinding Lights - U2

Austria Top 75 albums
HTDAAB slips from 62 to 69

Estonia Top 100 albums
HTDAAB is at 16
Sometimes is at 15 on Singles chart

Lithuania Top 40 Singles
Sometimes down 1 to 22

Yugoslavia
COBL is at 11 on Top 20 Singles chart

Czech Republic
23. kolo
10. 6. 2005 - 17. 6. 2005

1. ANETA LANGEROVÁ Voda živá 1 8
2. BLACK EYED PEAS Don´t Phunk With My Heart 3 2
3. SÁMER ISSA Když jsem sám 4 2
4. ANASTACIA Heavy On My Heart 6 14
5. U2 Sometimes You Can´t Make It On Your Own 2 13

And this week's award goes to Poland...

2005 - 18 POP LISTA REGIONALNA TOP 30 AIRPLAY
[ archiwum ] [ numer 1 ] [ legenda ] [ krajowa ]

I II III IV Wykonawca Tytuł Label Wytwórnia V VI

1 ne - 1 U2 City Of Blinding Lights Island Universal 1 2195

In summary, U2 is charting all over the globe...Vertigo was number 2 in a couple countries, Argentina has 3 singles in their Top 100, and I really have to wonder about mediatraffic's standard answer regarding their sales accuracy being roughly 90 to 95% of Global sales. On average, that may be the case, but U2 is one of the most far reaching bands on Earth, and I have to wonder if perhaps they sell more than 5% of their albums outside of the countries tracked on the Global Chart. Anyway, hope you enjoyed a brief look at a few countries around the globe.
