‘WHO’ is Number 1 in BILLBOARD charts and elswhere

The Who’s brand new studio album WHO is Number 1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart for the week ending December 21, 2019, and also earning the highest ranking debut album of the week. Album sales do not include free streaming so that’s quite a cool achievement for the band.

WHO charted at #2 in Billboard‘s Top 200 chart, the band’s joint highest charting album ever in the US alongside Who Are You (1978) and Quadrophenia (1973).

Here in the UK, The Who narrowly missed #1 last week. WHO is The Who’s highest charting album in the UK since 1982 and is on course to go silver this week, maintaining a second week in the Top ten.

WHO charted at #1 in the UK Official Vinyl chart and #1 in the Official Record Store chart (UK Independent stores).

WHO also charted at #5 in Germany and Switzerland and #2 in Canada.

The Who are also Number 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart, the Billboard Rock Albums Sales chart and the Billboard Current Albums chart.

    Horay ! Yip Yip ! Hats off to The Who and all group and record label for a incredible job. Well done. In the days were people don’t go to the strange record shop, still open agains all odds and internet rules, this is a unique achievement ! The album is good and sales are good and reviews have been good. Hope this one is not the last one….

    Great record. How about coming back to play MSG. Please come back to New York. You’re the greatest and we miss you.

    Still miss Keith and John but you guys MUST not ever retire, you can slow down a bit, fine. Please, go out like Johnny Winter, keep going, it keeps this Slip Kid fighting!
    Oh by the way, the music is great, especially like Ball and Chain!

  5. Marc Rettus says:

    Yes, please keep touring. I saw you good people roughly eight times on both of the last two tours. (I was the guy in the Union Jack jacket.)

    A truly outstanding album! Pete’s passion for writing is mind-blowing, and Roger’s voice sounds like it did in 1980! Each track is meaningful and beautifully crafted. Yet another Who masterpiece!

    Definitely the best in a while. I have been playing it regularly since its release and it has really grown on me. I do not think it can be compared to Who music of the 60s/70s. It stands on its own and it is good – really good
