Recent touring activity by David Gilmour and Roger Waters seems to have helped boost sales figures. In Malta alone, Roger's show there recently has triggered the island into a Pink Floyd frenzy!

The top 20 charts there this week see Roger’s Ca Ira in the top spot, Dark Side Of The Moon in second place, and David’s On an Island in fourth place. The high placing of Ca Ira is particularly interesting as he obviously didn't perform any selections from this at his show this month.

Turning to the rest of the world, the 2DVD release of one of Pink Floyd's stunning 1994 concerts at London's Earls Court has been very popular - it has entered the music DVD charts at number one in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, and the US.

It has apparently has one of the top three best first week's sales in the US of any music DVD in history!

In New Zealand, its chart-topping debut apparently represents four times as many sales as all the other DVD titles put together, going five times platinum in a single week. In Sweden, PULSE represented 71% of the total music DVD sales in its first week.

It's even featured separately in the album charts – No. 1 in Germany and No. 5 in Switzerland – while in Italy and Portugal it's also No. 1 in the general DVD chart.

Our thanks to Martin Farrell for the Maltese sales news, and to David's official website for the PULSE news.
