When someone purchases an album on this site, is it considered as a sale for the country where the purchaser is from?

 

In France, Muse's position in the Album charts will seemingly be third. The 2nd has sold a bit more than 43,000 copies. This means Muse has sold around 40,000, which is quite low compared to the previous albums. I Wonder if the albums we ordered here are included.

 

How come many French fans ordered their albums here several weeks ago and many (hundreds?) haven't received them yet. We're waiiting paatiently…but it's too long !!!

#36(-21) Japan

#40(-33) Australia

#47(-42) Ireland

 

Streaming has decimated physical and digital album and track sales for most artists during the past three years.

 

"Sales of music’s most beloved format are in free fall in the United States this year. According to figures published by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), the value of total stateside album sales in the first half of 2018 (across download, CD and vinyl) plummeted by 25.8 percent when compared with the first half of 2017.

 

If that percentage decline holds for the full year, and there’s every indication it will, annual U.S. album sales in 2018 will end up at half the size of what they were as recently as 2015. To put it more plainly, U.S. consumers will spend around half a billion dollars less on albums this year than they did in 2017."

That ID album bombed hard generally?

 

No promotion, hype or critical buzz and last studio album Evolve was released only 18 months ago. Radio airplay over satuation. To wit: Smoke + Mirrors sold 172k albums in the USA in its first week in February 2015; Evolve 109k in June 2017; and Origins 61k in November 2018. However, ID is the most popular pop/rock band at streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

Stat du jour!

 

MUSE actually outsold Imagine Dragons and Kane Brown in pure album sales this past week in the U.S. according to Billboard/Nielsen Music.

 

#9 Simulation Theory 16-17k (#6 Debut Week 33k)

#12 Origins 12-13k (#2 Debut Week 61k)

#18 Experiment 9-10k (#1 Debut Week 105k)

 

Simulation Theory's second-week album sales were likely bolstered by sales generated by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with the band's upcoming U.S. 2019 tour.

MUSE will be one of the select few Western artists to ever headline a concert at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow when they play at the largest football stadium in Russia in June 2019.

 

MUSE have previously played gigs at Spartak Stadium (Otkritie Arena) and the Olympijskiy Stadium in Moscow.

 

Below is a list of artists who have played gigs at the Luzhniki national stadium of Russia which notably has also hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1980 Summer Olympic Games; the 2008 UEFA Champions League final between Manchester United and Chelsea; and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final between France and Croatia:

 

1989 Music Peace Festival (Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Mötley Crüe, Cinderella, and Gorky Park are among the bands who took part in this two-day event in Moscow before the dissolution of the Soviet Union)

 

1993 Michael Jackson

 

1998 The Rolling Stones

 

2006 Madonna (38k attendance)

 

2007 Metallica

 

2010 U2 (60k attendance)

 

2012 Red Hot Chili Peppers

 

2018 Robbie Williams (Opening Ceremony of the FIFA World Cup)

 

2018 Imagine Dragons (50k attendance)

 

2019 Bon Jovi

 

2019 MUSE

 

2019 Metallica

 

The only other football stadiums in Europe which have hosted a Summer Olympic Games, UEFA CL Final, and a FIFA World Cup Final and where MUSE have performed one or more headlining concerts are the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and Wembley [known as Empire Stadium during the 1948 Olympic Games] in London. The Stade de France in Saint-Denis (north of Paris) will be the fourth venue meeting the above cited criteria when it is scheduled to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.

are those worldwide sales good or not? I hope it will climb higher again during the tour...

 

Physical and digital album sales for most artists including even Taylor Swift have nose-dived the past two years due to streaming.

 

The one exception: Ed Sheeran whose latest album ÷ [Divide] has sold around 8 million copies and his ÷ [Divide] World Tour from 2017-2019 is on track to sell close to 8 million concert tickets and take in $700+ million at the box office matching or possibly surpassing the attendance totals generated by U2's 360° tour during 2009-2011.

 

https://www.ifpi.org/news/Ed-Sheeran-officially-named-the-best-selling-global-recording-artist-of-2017

 

Sale pricing at Apple Music for the standard edition of Simulation Theory has boosted end of year holiday sales for the album in the UK, the US, and Canada.
