    Cologne, 15th August, 1997.

    Roger Taylor and Brian May then accepted a special award on behalf of QUEEN - the Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed on the band at the VIVA Comet Awards.

    NOW QOL

    http://www.ifpi.de/
    still lists MIH as 2P
    Yes, I had also read that "Made in heaven" was on 3 platinum award in Germany, and Brian and Roger had been given those awards. Looking at the performance of the album, I think that 1,5 M could easily be right.

    Unfortunatley I don't have any exact price references for Queen UK BPI Awards Discs. But you can see how much originals by similar sized artists such as U2, Led Zeppelin, Madonna etc, sell for, in this link. There are also some US RIAA Awards discs in there too, that are for Queen.

Here is an original UK Gold Awards disc for A Night at the Opera from 1976;

    QUEEN...GOLD DISC - Queen, Killer Queen, original 7" record without picture sleeve.

    BPI lists this one as
    Award Type: Silver
    Artist Name: QUEEN
    Record Type: Single
    Record Title: KILLER QUEEN

    Is the gold rec a fake or is BPI not up to date (on this one as well?
    does any one know?

    thanks!

    The numbers for ANATO posted by jimmypages59
    are higher then the 90,400 the chart Coy informed some time ago ref the period 94 - 03. It would seem that the chart coy data does not cover all sales?

    Thanks for the numbers!

    Yes, with all those compilations, those are very decent numbers. It also shows how "Queen" and "Queen 2" are ready to be certified platinum. Dispite that, I feel I understand what John is pointing.

    I think the thing with Queen is that a lot of people just go the for the Greatest Hits packages rather than the original studio albums. Although 300,000+ (about 21k a year) for A Night At The Opera is reasonably good sales.

    I will carry on with list, i'll just post them in order as I get the info.

    Certifed Platinum in Mar 91, so only about 15 months missing. With Mercury's death in Nov 91, the album could have sold a lot of copies in that time. I would imagine it should be at least 2 X Platinum. 300,000 + 189,000 + 100,000+ (If not more, it probably done at least 50,000 in 92) (Mar 91-Jun 92).

    Haven forum listed this ref the UK:
    Released to coincide with what would have been his 60th birthday last Tuesday (5th), The Very Best Of Freddie Mercury Solo debuts at number six with sales of 23,155 The album, available both as a single disc and as a double disc set, should receive another boost with the screening of an ITV documentary, It's A Kind Of Magic tomorrow (12th). Queen back catalogue benefited from the anniversary too, with Greatest Hits advancing 95-87 and Live At Wembley '86 and Greatest Hits II re-entering at 149 and 164 respectively.

    Here is a part of an article taken from an argentinian newspaper in 2001:

    "El hombre que fue reina

    El cantante de Queen murió hace diez años. Su personalidad marcó a fuego el gusto argentino y sus discos se venden casi tanto como los de los Beatles.
    Ochocientos cincuenta mil novecientos treinta discos es la cifra que Queen vendió en Argentina solamente en discos compactos. En los últimos diez años, desde que la vida de Freddy Mercury se apagó definitivamente, ese es el número; el indicador Queen; el dato que dice que este es el segundo grupo de rock— superado solo por The Beatles—que más discos de catálogo vende.
    Queen vendió casi 400 mil discos de su Greatest Hits II (Grandes éxitos)"


    In conclusion, it says that Queen had sold 850.930 copies only in CD´s in Argentina until 2001, and they are the second best selling band after The Beatles. It aslo says that Greatest hits had sold over 0,4 M copies (I presume the figure was based in Cd´s only).
