SuperBowl Fires U2 Back Into US Top Thirty
On the back of last week's SuperBowl performance, All That You Can't Leave Behind has jumped more than forty places in the Billboard Chart.
The album, released 16months ago and with ten million copies sold to date, has shot up to No.25 in the latest Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. Previous to the band's half time appearance at the SuperBowl, the album was at No.66.
The jump in sales comes a fortnight before the band perform before another global audience at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. They remain on course to fulfill a prediction made last year U2's manager Paul McGuinness. He believes that eventually All That You Can't Leave Behind would become the biggest selling U2 album of all, outstripping even The Joshua Tree which has now sold 18m copies worldwide.
