Andre Rieu DVD and CD is Forth Biggest Seller Of The Year

By Paul Cashmere
Mon, 29 Dec 2008 06:46:24 +1100

Maestro Andre Rieu has done the unthinkable. His `Live In Australia` CD and DVD has become the forth biggest selling music item of 2008 in Australia.

With just days before the end of the year, ‘Live In Australia’ has clocked up 242,675 sales, putting it behind Kings Of Leon ‘Only By The Night’, Pink ‘Funhouse’ and AC/DC ‘Black Ice’.

With sales of 71,494 DVDs and a further 10,709 CDs, Rieu ‘Live In Australia’ has leap-frogged over Coldplay ‘Viva La Vida’ this week.

The Coldplay album has sold 236,135 units so far. The ‘Mamma Mia’ soundtrack is behind that with 149,476 units sold.

As ‘Live In Australia’ is split between DVD and CD formats, each format will be listed separately when the end of year chart is published in a few days.

As a DVD, it is by far the biggest seller of the year, but as a CD I won’t make the Top 20.

Year to date sales for the biggest sellers are:

1. Kings of Leon : Only By The Night (422,108)
2. Pink : Funhouse (418,826)
3. AC/DC : Black Ice (306,177)
4. Andre Rieu : Live In Australia (242,675)
5. Coldplay : Viva La Vida (236,135)

In the year-end chart, minus Rieu, the number 5 album will be the Mamma Mia soundtrack with sales of 149,476.

The next biggest seller of the year was Metallica ‘Death Magnetic’.
