Queen last had a No 1 album in 1995’s Made in Heaven. The band’s final studio album saw Freddie Mercury’s posthumous vocals sing along with Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon’s instruments. And now Queen and Adam Lambert have released a live album which looks to be heading for UK No 1.
According to the Official Charts Company, Queen and Adam Lambert’s Live Around The World had a lead of over 3000 sales in the mid-week chart on Monday.
A UK No 1 would be Queen’s first in 25 years, following their very first No 1 in 1975 with A Night at the Opera.
If they should take No 1 this week, the achievement will mark Queen’s 10th UK No 1 album and Adam Lambert’s very first.
Roger Taylor wrote on Instagram: “So thrilled to hear we might have our first Number 1 album in 25 years!”
