Great statistics from the French charts:

#249 Hot Space
#241 Sheer Heart Attack
#236 Jazz
#231 Queen
#210 Made In Heaven
#201 The Works
#199 Queen II
#179 A Kind Of Magic
#146 Innuendo
#116 News Of The World
#63 A Night At The Opera
#47 Greatest Hits II
#24 Greatest Hits
#5 Bohemian Rhapsody
#3 The Platinum Collection


Thanks to the private info received by "De Agostini" about the Queen vinyl collection released in Italy, I got some news. Without going into the details, as their online sales are still going on, the vinyls have had an average of about 1,000 copies per issue. The best selling items have been A Kind Of Magic (the first issue), Live At Wembley and Rock Montreal. So the total might be around 25,000 copies for this collection.



Queen also rule the video charts in the United Kingdom. In the Music Video Chart:

#1 Live At Wembley
#3 Rock Montreal
#9 The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert
#10 Days Of Our Lives
The Bohemian Rhapsody movie is #1 both in the DVD and in the blu ray chart.


As to the United States, it will be interesting to see this website, when it is updated:

to know the sales of Bohemian Rhapsody in DVD and in blu ray charts.

For the back catalogue the peaks are for Virgin Emi releases. Back in 70s and 80s there was international charts and domestic. Queen albums that had sold very well and peaked number #1 or top 5 were plenty.. NOTW, Jazz, Live killers went gold, the Game was huge, The Miracle, live magic GH II sold good numbers

Two new certifications for Queen's albums in Italy:

Both A Night At The Opera and Innuendo have been certified Gold for having exceeded the 25,000 copies.

This proves the catalogue sales of Innuendo are very good, while A Night At The Opera is living a great moment in the charts.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised these albums were not already gold. They should be platinum surely?!

The certification counting starts from 2009.

If we consider also the TV Sorrisi & Canzoni sales, these two albums have sold around 80,000/90,000 copies from 2008.

According to Chartmasters, the estimation for Innuendo is not far from 700,000 copies: https://chartmasters.org/2017/10/cspc-q ... alysis/17/

Ah right, in that case it’s pretty good. I thought that was dating back to their original releases.

Does anyone know when Queens overall sales will be updated on Chartmasters, now that it's all dying down a little with the movie?
Thank you.

MJD, who runs the site told it will be updated in June, or the end of Q2. It’ll be fascinating to see how they’ve done!
