    All Time Best Selling Act In Europe

    Rank // Year 1rst Album/Last Album / Artist / Total sales
    1 // 1963 1970 Beatles - 92,500,000
    2 // 1973 1995 Queen - 80,050,000
    3 // 1983 2005 Madonna - 73,040,000
    4 // 1979 2001 Michael Jackson - 70,200,000
    5 // 1967 1994 Pink Floyd - 69,900,000
    6 // 1980 2004 U2 - 59,300,000
    7 // 1980 2004 Phil Collins - 55,200,000
    8 // 1964 2005 Rolling Stones - 53,800,000
    9 // 1969 2006 Elton John - 52,600,000
    10 // 1973 1982 ABBA - 52,300,000
    10 // 1978 1991 Dire Straits - 52,300,000
    12 // 1990 2003 Celine Dion - 50,900,000

    Without a doubt The Beatles mark their massive domination on European album sellers. With strong catalog sales year after year and new releases always successful despite being disbanded for 37 years, The Beatles will be for sure the first act ever to achieve the 100m mark in Europe.
    Behind them, Queen came out at #2, managing to sell over 77m albums in Europe with none studio album selling over 5m - At least until the posthume "Made In Heaven".
    After this strong Top 2, a group of 3 acts, a female, a male and a band, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Pink Floyd are almost tied with sales around the 70m mark. Madonna and Michael Jackson are the best selling female and male acts respectivly, but also the Top 2 best selling non-European act.
    At #6, the Irish band U2 with almost 60m albums sold. Thanks to their very consistent sales of studio albums but also Live and Hits package over 27 years, they look safe to hold this place - even if they look unlikely to break the Top 5 in the next few years.
    Phil Collins, the Rolling Stones, ABBA, Dire Straits, Elton John and Celine Dion have all very diverse careers, but they all manage sales in the same range, between 50m and 55m. Celine Dion is the one who benefits from non-English speaking albums, with her French albums selling an impressive total of 15m copies. Dire Straits and Phil Collins thanks to amazing album sales from early 80's to mid 90's achieve the 50m mark with only 6 and 7 studio albums respectivly. The Rolling Stones and Elton John are a totaly different matter with well over 20 studio albums each. ABBA in the same way of Queen got massive sales from their hits package.

    Others :

    1969 2006 Rod Stewart - 43,500,000
    1954 1977 Elvis Presley - 43,300,000
    1967 2001 Bee Gees - 41,500,000
    1997 2006 Robbie Williams - 40,800,000
    1969 1997 Genesis - 39,900,000
    1973 2006 Bruce Springsteen - 37,600,000
    1985 2007 Simply Red - 36,900,000
    1970 2005 Paul McCartney - 35,400,000
    1964 1970 Simon & Garfunkel - 32,900,000
    1985 2002 Whitney Houston - 31,800,000
    1972 2006 Eric Clapton - 31,300,000
    1983 2004 R.E.M. - 31,100,000
    1985 2005 Eros Ramazzotti - 30,600,000
    1976 2000 AC/DC - 30,400,000
    1969 1982 Led Zeppelin - 30,400,000
    1978 2006 Prince - 30,000,000

    Most successful Album sellers
    Rank // # St. Albums / Artist / Average sales
    1 // 06 Michael Jackson - 9,417,000
    2 // 06 Dire Straits - 5,950,000
    3 // 07 Phil Collins - 5,757,000
    4 // 11 U2 - 4,270,000
    5 // 14 Pink Floyd - 4,207,000
    6 // 11 Madonna - 4,109,000
    7 // 07 Celine Dion - 3,829,000
    8 // 11 Beatles - 3,791,000
    9 // 14 Queen - 2,443,000
    10 // 08 ABBA - 2,400,000
    11 // 22 Rolling Stones - 1,464,000
    12 // 32 Elton John - 931,000

    In this second list we can see the average sales per studio album from all those artists. The first obvious point is Michael Jackson's albums outselling Elton John's ones by 1000%! Even if his next albums flop he should still safely #1 for some years, mostly thanks to his 4 blockbusters in a row from Thriller to History. Surprisingly Dire Straits and Phil Collins, even with 2 disappointing albums in a row in comparison to his standard for Phil Collins, are up to over 5,7m albums sold per album, a sign of an extremely successful career in the continent. U5, Pink Floyd and Madonna both hold strong sales over more than 10 albums and 20 years of career. Celine Dion's average looks lowest than expected, despite only 7 albums and truly giant sellers she is under the 4m mark in average. The Beatles too but mostly due to very low sales during the 60's. Queen and ABBA have definitly a similar profile with a bit less than 2,5m albums sold in average, a relatively low average looking at how popular those two bands are. The Rolling Stones is easily the most regular act with all their albums selling from 0,9m to 2,2m over a 40 years career! Finaly, with a very long time before to achieve a certain fame in several key market and with a long and hard time of many flops, Elton John looks poor with less than 1m copies sold in average of his studio albums - an average that tend to decrease more and more.
