  • Queens Greatest Hits drops from 90 to 92 in this weeks UK chart. At number 85, Saturdays album sells 6,245 copies so Queens album may have actually seen an increase from last week probably selling 5,500-6,000 copies.

    Should easily sell 100,000+ by year end...

      billboard often published latin boxscores (from evenpro mainly) but always with delay, we just have to wait
      Thank you, John. I didnīt know that, although, as I was told yesterday, Queen are a bit secretive regarding box office and that sort of stuff so I doubt they reported their numbers. For their previous tour, they only reported their two North American legs, but not their european and japanese conecrts, :( where they achieved most of their success with that tour.

        Thank you, Edwood. I think it is more likely 5,000 copies this week based on its current positions. Assuming the album sold 40,000 from january to the end of july this year, I estimated "Greatest hits 1" sold roughly 106,000 copies so far counting this very week.

        On the other hand, two new Soundscan sales figures:

        5 HOL 186 146 83 QUEEN GREATEST HITS-WE WILL ROCK YOU 2,990 68 1,784 773,979

        626 HOL 59 67 87 QUEEN GREATEST HITS 2,886 6 2,728 6,561,229

        Combining both versions, they both achieved 7,335,208 since Soundscan has been tracking retail sales in USA. Interestingly, it looks like they havenīt been selling less on a weekly basis because, as much as 1992 has dropped a lot, 2004 really increased its sales in recent weeks.

          HUR, just found some more sales info. on Haven.com.
          The Sugababes at number 91 on the album chart sold 5,767 copies last week so Queen at one place below them should have sold over 5,500 copies.

          I dont know if we are going to get any Top 200 album chart info. for the remainder of the year. It would be interesting to see if The Cosmos Rocks, The Platinum Collection or Greatest Hits 2 are still in this...

              Thank you, Edwood. Nice position. It is helped by its big week last year on november.

              So "Greatest hits 1" sold 5,500 copies in UK this week as you said. Thatīs pretty good.

                    Thank you, good position. In the DVD chart, "Live at wembley ī86" is currently at #12 and "Greatest video hits 2" at #18.

                    In Argentina, "Live in Japan" is certified platinum this week for sales of 4,000 copies.

                      • This week Queens Greatest Hits is still in the top 100 UK album chart - it slips from 92 to 93 in the chart. Other sales figures in the chart are
                        6,674 copies sold for the Saturdays at number 84. Queen should still have sold around 5,500 copies this week at 9 places below this album. It will once again this year be one of the biggest selling catalogue albums in the UK....

                            Thank you John again. Thatīs great to me. I know the Pollstar online site, but do you know in which section they give boxscores for certain concerts assuming they are shown in the site. I havenīt found any for their previous tour in Europe in 2005. :(

                                  Wow thank you. The actual title is "Queen in vision". Do you understand japanese?.

                                  John, thank you for the reply there. Hopefully, I will find something.

                                    I use Google Translator which can easily constitute as cheating.

                                        Im sure that Greatest Hits or Jewels must have sold more on Catalogue in Japan in 2008 then these 2 albums....

                                          • If you have nothing constructive to say in this thread Nelson apart from posting rubbish stay out of it..

                                            Based on what level - Queen Jewels was a number 1 album in Japan :-? . Queen are a huge international act in that country - the sales for The Cosmos Rocks are 'rubbish' compared to other sales for their albums...

                                            • Yes, in 2004, Queen sold 1,781,001 copies, which is more than some high profile acts did in recent years.

                                              Anyway, Nelson is just joking. He is the best.

                                              • HUR, do you have any idea what Queen sell on an average year in Japan just on catalogue sales?

                                                I don't think there is any data published annually that is comprehensive like in the US with Soundscan.

                                                  No, sadly I donīt. But they are rather recurrent. Even 2008 was rather poor compared to other years. But letīs say, around 50,000-100,000 by year. Nt many bands have sold more album than them over Japan.

                                                  • In the biggest sales week of the year in the UK album chart, Queens Greatest Hits continues to be in the top 100 album chart, it slips to number 98 from 93 last week.

                                                    In most weeks of the year this would mean low sales, but due to the huge increase in sales, the album is continuing to sell well. At number 68, Take That's album Beatiful World,sells 10,156 copies, whilst Will Young at number 156 sells 3,397 copies. Dont know Queen's figure but should be over 6,500-7,000 copies sold if you extrapolate these 2 chart positions...
