I just hope this multi million dollar ad campain they have planned for the fall doesn't backfire and we end up seeing statues of the band floating down a river or something.

STING2: wasn't this chart published in 2003? Surely those numbers should be updated.

ATYCLB was released almost a year ahead of 9/11 and did great, in US and elsewhere. If I recall right, 7+ millions were sold by the end of 2000 alone.

To answer the question, I don't think so. The "older" they get, the harder it will be to reach such high sales - also consider rock music isn't what it used to be in the years of JT or AB; now pop, r&b and hip hop are the biggest genres (in the US). I could see them somewhere around 9, 10 millions.

True but there are other 'rock' bands like the Chili Peppers who are pretty much the same age as U2 who are riding the crest of their careers at the moment.

Hard to say; no one is immune against a sales slump, not even superstars. It will be interesting to see how they fare.
