      I havent a clue where you get all your info but I would kindly ask if anyone could possibly confirm an approximate AC/DC v UB40 all time album sales comparison? I eagerly await confirmation of the massive gulf in difference

        • 12.12.2008 AC/DC Add Stadium Dates To The 'Black Ice' World Tour
          AC/DC Nominated For A Grammy Award
          Black Ice Certified Platinum In Multiple Countries


          AC/DC add stadium shows to their Black Ice World Tour beginning in Leipzig, Germany on May 13, 2009 and running through June 30, 2009 in Glasgow, Scotland. AC/DC kicked off their hugely successful Black Ice World Tour in late October and the press can't stop raving about the band's incredible live performance. The Chicago Tribune called their live show "a celebration of all that is great about Rock N Roll," while The Boston Globe exclaimed "AC/DC is the greatest band ever." The tour is currently making it's way across the United States before heading to Europe. Click here for the full itinerary.

          Released globally on October 20, 2008, Black Ice is AC/DC's first new album in over eight years and it's evident the band are still an incredible force in rock. The Washington Post noted that "Black Ice is the best record the band has made in decades" and People magazine put it best by saying "Black Ice finds the Australian rockers at their headbanging, power-chord-crunching best." 'Rock N Roll Train,' the first single from Black Ice has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals. This is AC/DC's fifth Grammy Award nomination.

          Black Ice made history debuting at #1 on album charts in 29 countries and also has the distinction of being Columbia Records' biggest debut album (since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data for Billboard in March of 1991). Black Ice has been certified Multi Platinum in eight countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany and the Czech Republic. Additionally Black Ice has achieved Platinum status in twelve countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, UK, Argentina, Singapore and New Zealand) and Gold status in four countries (Netherland, Spain, Poland and Brazil). With over 6 million copies of Black Ice shipped worldwide, combined with over 5.5 million in catalog sold this year, AC/DC have surpassed The Beatles as the #1 selling catalog artist in the US for 2008. In the US, Black Ice is being sold exclusively at Walmart, Sam's Club, and www.acdc.com.

                Fantastic !
                So, 40% of the worldwide sales are in the USA.
                Like for the Eagles, I imagine this album will be a best seller too on the long run, so why not 3 million copies sold at the United States and 6 million in the world at the final ?

                    It's very strong WW. I don't think Black Ice is gonna catch Eagles in the US, but it will do better in ROW.

                    • Do you know, Dane, what are the total sales of the Eagles in the world ? Because I think AC/DC will sell more than them worldwide.
