Re: Live Around The World

That’s great for them (and some other old, but very successful albums/artists). IMO that’s the point, where the charts today show a distorted picture.

Re: Live Around The World

Yet, they underestimated demand over here. I think any TV promotion works. Prime time TV especially. They didn't have time to plan any shows participation even over here. Also Brian's been still recovering after his health scare. So, I think the UK and Australia #1s are really cool! Great news from...

The charts count physical sales more than streams so that helps the older artists chart a little higher. It’s different but ...

Re: Live Around The World

Queen’s Greatest Hits has been on the album chart for years. Way before streaming ever existed and way before your little playlists that you always bring up.

Re: Live Around The World

Re: Live Around The World

I think they knew it wasn’t going to do good here no matter what. That’s why it’s so cheap here. I mean what kind of promotion do you expect for a live album? All the major magazines talked about it here and Sirius XM radio advertised it.
