Mad for Madge
Madonna’s headline act at Live Earth was followed by increased customer demand in the UK, according to retailers such as Tesco and HMV.
Tesco said its combined download and in-store sales of Madonna’s back catalogue albums yesterday increased by 420% on the previous week. The strongest demand was for her greatest hits collections and her last album Confessions on a Dance Floor.
HMV said sales of The Immaculate Collection had more than doubled in stores yesterday compared to the previous Sunday while sales of Madonna at HMV Digital also showed a “big increase”, a spokesman for the retailer said.
