Oasis’s third album, ‘Be Here Now‘ (the one with Milano Lambretta on the cover), the follow up to 1995’s (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, still holds the UK’s record for the biggest first day sales after it sold 350,000 in 24 hours back in 1997. The Brit Rock legends, who recently split, went on to sell approx. 70 million albums world wide.
‘Progress’, which is the band’s first album in 16 years to feature Robbie Williams, grabbed this sales record just a day after the band performed together for the first time since their reunion on Sunday night’s ‘X Factor’.
As if one record weren’t enough, Take That also crushed another one when their tour became the biggest and fastest-selling in UK history earlier this month.
Martin Talbot from the Official Charts Company, commented about Take That sales: “This is a phenomenal achievement from an already phenomenally successful band.”
Take That perform at the City of Manchester stadium on 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10,11 and 12 June 2011 (all sold out, 8 dates also @ Wembley), and after England they come to Milan San Siro stadium on 12 July (not sold out :)
