    And in 2006, Queen sold 993.000 copies in USA, and 640.000 in UK. Thta´s a total of 1.633.000. Their catalog sold well in countries like Italy, Spain and other.

    And besides, Live at wembley sold about 46.000 copies during 2006. The total was at 251.000 at the end of 2005, which brings it up to 297.000. Dispite that, I have a figure of over 267.000 from 2005, which includes formats not counted in the previuos figure. This means that Live at wembley sold surely over 300.000 copies in UK.

    Well, I have foun Queen total soundscan for 2004 and 2005. In 2004, Queen sold 942.000 copies, and in the following year, a total of 986.000. That´s a total of 1.928.000.

    In Japan, Queen sold 1.780.001 in 2004, and at leat 190.000 during 2005. This figures includes the gold certification for Queen jewels 2 in that year, and the sales of Queen jewels 1 according to oricon. This brings the total up to 1.970.000 between both years. So we can say that Queen sold over 2 millions copies in Japan.

    And in UK, we don´t have a figure for 2004, but we know that the Platinium collection sold 218.000 copies during that year. The sales in 2005 were 620.000. Therefore, Queen sold at least 838.000 copies. if we found the sales for 2004, Queen would be at about 900.000 copies between both years.

    So Queen sold about 4.828.000 copies between those countries.

    That would normally be a cool poll win but with a very overated and overexposed boyband being heavily involved,takes the gloss off,somewhat!!!!!!

    If this was a world tennis poll,it would be lke Tim Henman finishing 5th,with not a mention of Borg or Laver!!!!!!!

    Cheers Cidermaster

    PS Do you know who Borg and Laver could be????

    Queen have edged out The Beatles in a another 'greatest band ever' poll, this time conducted by BBC Radio in the UK.
    The eclectic rockers found themselves 400 votes ahead of The Beatles, in a poll of over 20,000 listeners. Respondents were asked to rate five bands, the others being The Rolling Stones, Oasis and Take That, who finished third through fifth respectively.
    Queen's virtually unquestionable reputation as one of the finest live acts in rock history helped get them over the line, with respondents asked to vote in categories such as showmanship and live performances, as well as lyrics, songwriting and originality.
    Undercover's resident psychic, Serena, claims she was able to communicate with the late Freddie Mercury about the result. He reportedly told her, "Darling, let me tell you that over the course of 2007, some 8,942 different acts will be declared the 'greatest band ever' in various time-filling radio polls. Now leave me alone, Mr Lennon lost the bet and owes me a wax."

    I'm a little bit surprised, 'cause the Beatles allways seemed untouchable. It just proves what a huge recognition of Queen these days in UK, if they can match even the Beatles! Besides, it's not the first time, when Queen overcome the Beatles.
    On New Year's Eve, 2002, Virgin Radio counted down the full chart of Top British Artists, voted by britons and Queen toped this poll too:}
    http://www.virginradio.co.uk/music/char ... tists.html
    Its only a pity (and shame to britonsthat Queen cant match the Beatles by number of No 1 singles and number of weeks, spent there (also albums in this regard). I can't understand this, really.

    Thank you John, for that information. I had also read that Greatest hits 2 was the second best selling album of 1992 in Sweden, but I wasn´t sure.

    Yes, I read that the musical will be in Canada. Is it getting good promotion?.
    Yea it is not sure it will do that well like it did it London cos they just dont have the same stature in Canada that they have in UK.In any event i will keep you posted how it is doing from someone who actually lives in the city where it is premiering
    Thank you Classicrock, I wait for your information. And yes, Queen were not a very big act in Canada, or at least not as many as in their places.

    Yes 24 weeks top 10... Good but not THAT good. Not at all suffisant to sold a million in Sweden. Massively successful albums like the eponymous o Nordman sold 'only' around 500k, despite 16 weeks at #1 and almost 2 years charted, Vapen & ammunition by Kent also sold this amount of copies with 7 weeks #1 and 10 months top 10. The same goes for Halmstads pärlor by Gyllene Tider, 20 weeks #1, 102 weeks top 60 in several different years and still nowhere near to a million.

    BTW, do you have complete year end charts of Sweden ?
    yes of course not a million I know that ;) but probably well over 200.000

    You can find them on grammotex archives. I don't have to post them now but will do it next week if you want

    QUEEN Greatest Hits II (Official and stunning 1994 IFPI certified Swedish PLATINUM Award issued to commemorate sales in excess of 1,000,000 copies. This aluminium framed and glazed award measures 11" x 16" in size, and shows a copy of the CD witha global 'EMI' logo placed in the centre of the disc plus album artwork mounted above the authentic custom engraved dedication plaque. This is all mounted on a beautiful cobalt blue background!)
    Platinum is 100,000 in Sweden (well, was 100,000 back in 94). His run is not that impressive, it peaked "only" at #2.
    Yes it was no 2... That in itself does not mean that much it was also 'just' no 2 in Germany but sold rather well overthere - but was no 2 for some time if I am not mistaken.
    Could this be a special award you think? Although I must admit that 1 million is a lot for a country Like Sweden. (tried to read the sales number on the photo displayed but it to blurry when blown up)
