The Joshua Tree hits the iTunes album charts

Joshua Tree on iTunes album chart

If this year, or at least part of it, is supposed to be about celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree, it looks like the party has already begun.

The album has climbed up the iTunes Music Store album charts in recent days, perhaps powered by both the band's Joshua Tree Tour 2017 announcement and the fact that iTunes is selling the album for only $5.99. One of our staffers noticed the album moving up the iTunes rankings on Monday, and it's still there today. In fact, it's there twice. As of about 2:00 PM PT, the main album (2007 remastered version) was No. 11 on the overall album chart and the Deluxe Edition (also from 2007) was No. 22. That Deluxe Edition is currently being sold for $9.99.

If you look just at the Rock category on the albums chart, the album was at No. 3 overall and the Deluxe Edition at No. 5. The image above shows the overall album chart rankings, and below is a screenshot just of the Rock category.

UPDATE, January 20: It's ten days since we published this news about The Joshua Tree reappearing on the iTunes album sales charts, and now comes a report from Hot Press magazine that the album has re-entered the Irish album charts at No. 3.
