'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb' has now sold one million copies in the UK - and is in its third straight week at No.1

HTDAAB has been at No 1 in the album charts since its release on November
22nd, and the first single 'Vertigo' reached No 1 in both the sales and download
charts.

And for those of you who like your stats, the new album is U2's 11th - and their ninth to go to No 1 in the UK.

UK success has been matched in charts all over the world - HTDAAB has taken the top spot in more than 25 countries, bringing the band's total worldwide album sales tally to more than 130 million.

(That's enough figures for now.)
