Queen have scored their first number one album in 25 years with Live Around The World. The compilation features highlights from the rock band’s decade of touring with American Idol star Adam Lambert.
The veteran rockers secured the top spot with the most CD and download sales, according to the Official Charts Company. This was despite a late challenge from K-pop girl group Blackpink, who sit in second place with The Album.
Live Around The World is Queen’s 10th number one album in the UK. It marks 25 years since 1995’s Made In Heaven, their final offering featuring recorded vocals from Freddie Mercury, and 45 years since their first number one, A Night At The Opera, in 1975.
