So, it's definitely under 20k :/ I'm guessing 8-10k pure sales. If that's the case, then her non-bundle sales were somewhere around the numbers I have predicted 45-50k.

^ Her highest peak since "The Greatest Hits" (#2 in 1999). It's been a very busy week over here, so she did very good :)

Unfortunately it didn't chart in Denmark (yet), there are 13 new entries by one of their singers who passed away recently, but i was still hoping it will reach the top 40... I wonder why it didn't debut in Norway though?

Cher debuts at No. 2 on the Artist 100, as her new set Dancing Queen soars in at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 153,000 units. The set of ABBA covers starts with the biggest sales week for a pop album by a woman in 2018.

So 137,711 out of 150,010 were "non traditional" sales.
In non-traditional are included digital sales, internet sales and the ticket bundle copies.

80-100k from ticket bundle is my guess.

That means only 13k copies sold in physical format in retail? That is a surprise for someone like Cher who tends to cater to an older target audience...

Well, you can chose CD or digital copy of the album with the ticket bundle:

Every ticket purchased online for Cher includes your choice of a CD or digital copy of the new album, Dancing Queen, released on 9/28/2018. You'll receive instructions via email on how to redeem your album after ticket purchase. US & Canadian residents only. One album per online ticket. Not valid for fan-to-fan resale.
So we should assume many of those getting the CD with their tickets would have bought it in a store regularly without the ticket bundle. How many is pure guessing.
