The 3 British super groups Coldplay, Oasis and Take That all managed to break records and score entries in the 2010 Guiness book of world records,
Coldplay’s two entries record the “Most downloaded free track of the week and “Best selling download album in the UK” while Oasis landed 22 successive Top 10 hits in the UK and now own the record for “Longest Top 10 UK chart run by a group”.
Take That’s 2009 comeback tour sold 600’000 within five hours and has earned them a place in the records with an entry for the “Fastest-Selling UK tour”.
British singer Alexandra Burke achieved two record entries for her single Allelulia, which sold a record 576,046 copies in the UK, topping Leona Lewis’s record in 2006.
Online download records suggest the increasing success of music purchased digitally. Leona Lewis’s single Bleeding Love sold a record 3.3 million downloads in the US.
Other record breaking artists include Sir Cliff Richard, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Britney Spears.
Spears is the youngest female artist in history to have five of her albums reach number 1.
Before Britney turned 20 years old in 2001, she had sold 37 million records around the world, earning her the title of all-time best-selling teenage artist.
Our highlights this week include a new album from one of the world’s biggest rock acts, a huge homecoming show for Elbow and the return of a long-running TV series.
No doubting the big release this week as Muse’s hugely-anticipated fifth studio album ‘The Resistance’ is out today. Elsewhere, David Gray releases his first album in four years – ‘Draw The Line‘ is out this week and The Big Pink’s debut album ‘A Brief History Of Love’, out today, is definitely worth checking out.
This weeks ‘Live4ever Presents…’gives you two bands from slightly different musical backgrounds but are both exciting young upstarts that definitely deserve a mention.
First band up I hold very dear to my heart. Been following these guys since they released a single on James Endeacott’s 1965 label. These guys go by the name of ‘Underground Heroes’ and they are ready to give you there hearts on their sleeves.
The first time I heard anything from this band was in the shape of their first 7″ single, Stella The Mistress. The B-Side was the track that really caught my ear and that was called ‘Lost In Dundee’.Now im not lying when I say that this song in question is the second most played song on my iPod. That song really grabbed me by the jugular and has never let go. Everytime I hear it I just want to swagger through a crowd and scream how much I love this band!
