[Chart Updates] Fleetwood Mac's Rumours Album Explodes on the Album Charts in the UK and Australia + Stevie Nicks

AUSTRALIA: Album Charts May 23, 2011 
Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" explodes in Australia re-entering the Top 50 Albums Chart at No. 2 right behind Adele - thanks to the Glee episode featuring songs from the album. The re-entry on the main Albums chart is a little odd given that it's a catalogue title.  Something changed somewhere to allow it to show up on the main Albums Chart.  Had it been able to chart in the last two weeks on this chart it would have been No. 58, then No. 65 last week.  The album also moves up from No.7 last week to No. 2 on the Top 50 catalogue chart and enters the Top 50 Digital Albums Chart at No.2. "The Very Best Of" drops one position this week to No. 5 from No. 4 last week.

On itunes "Rumours" is No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and No. 2 on the overall Albums Chart.

Also, Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" has been certified 13x platinum in Australia with shipments of 910,000 units.  Stevie Nicks' Live In Chicago DVD Released in 2009 has been certified Gold with shipments of 7,500.  

In it's second week on the chart, Stevie's "In Your Dreams" dips from No. 24 last week to No. 32 this week.

Glee's version of "Go Your Own Way" enters the Top 40 Digital Track Chart at No. 30 and on the Top 50 Singles Chart the song enters the chart at No. 32.

Rumours fly for Fleetwood Mac, 34 years on.
TheAge.au

Legendary rockers Fleetwood Mac have made a shock return to the Australian music charts, with their highest-selling record Rumours re-emerging at number two on the albums chart, 34 years after its original release.

The surprise comeback follows the Australian premiere of a Fleetwood Mac-inspired episode of the musical drama Glee, which aired on Network Ten last Wednesday night.

The Grammy Award-winning album has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide since its release in 1977, and has been certified thirteen-times platinum in Australia.

It is the first time in more than a year the album has featured on the ARIA charts.

But the group's lead singer, Stevie Nicks, has not seen as much success with her solo album In Your Dreams, which hangs back at number 32, a week after its debut.

Either way, Fleetwood Mac's new-found popularity was not strong enough to push UK songstress Adele from the top spot.
