The album at #66 on Billboard's Top Album Sales chart sold 6,316 copies, so 'Dancing Queen' at #57 probably sold about 6,7k-7k :D.

Alfie, do you think that it re-entered so high in Canada due to the 5 new Canadian dates? I didn't think they had a ticket bundle with those shows but maybe they do.

^I did ask Live Nation Canada when the dates were announced, but of course didn’t get a reply. I assume that they must’ve had the ticket bundle?

If you go to the Canadian Ticketmaster website, it states that "Cher Ticket Includes New Music! 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."

Smart move! This is amazing. Now a Gold certification is possible in Canada for DQ. It also seems that a Gold plaque in the UK could happen with the longevity the album has had :D :D :D

^Yeah, I reckon that it sold about 25-30k in Canada so far, so with more albums redeemed and while she tours there, it has high chances of going Gold!

As for UK, DQ will go Gold before or once the tour starts (30k copies to go til Gold), but the tour itself will probably be used to promote the 2nd ABBA album, or the Christmas album, whichever she ends up releasing in the fall.

Hi, guys!
I think that Dancing Queen probably will sell more in US than Closer To The Truth, especially because of the tickets of the tour.
The d2k tour had so many concerts cancelled and that might have disturbed the sales of CTTT. Nevertheless, the album sold 380k in US according to ChartMasters.org. If she doesn't cancel any concert, I'm sure that DQ will sell about 400k or even more in US.
Here is a a curiosity: d2k tour sold more than 600k tickets... I don't understand why CTTT had just 380k copies sold. But ok.

I hope she gets gold in the US with DQ by the end of this year.
It's a massive album. Good for her to go on a big world tour. I feel the new records coming.

We have to update the numbers of her discography in wikipedia. The most complete numbers in pure sales are available in https://chartmasters.org/2017/08/cspc-c ... alysis/36/

For exemple: according to the same website, CTTT sold 600k in pure sales. But, when the downloads and streams are counted, the sales go to 677k.
The numbers have to be fixed in Wikipedia.

Hi Gabriel and welcome! The thing with Chartmasters is that it’s not official I’m afraid, the numbers there are estimations by a few people who run that site. That being said, it cannot be used as a reference on Wikipedia, even though some of their estimations are pretty close to reality I guess.

As for DQ outselling CTTT, I’m not sure that’s possible. At best, it will sell another 100k in the US in pure sales. They will probably use the 2nd leg of the tour to promote the upcoming album there. I guess WBR rely on the tour to sell the album and are not really looking to push it further nor are they interested in issuing certifications (for many of their artists).
