Pete Tong Holds at Number 2 on the British Albums Chart; Five Other Veteran Artists in Top Ten

by VVN Music

Pete Tong along with The Heritage Orchestra Conducted by Jules Buckley stay at number 2 for a second week with Classic House on the British Albums chart.

Tong has also taken over the top spot on the Downloads chart from the latest Now That's What I Call Music release and the Sales chart from Little Mix. He stays at number 1 on the Dance Albums.

He is the first of six veteran artists who are holding court in the British top ten, the same number as last week but with a bit different mix of artists.

George Michael jumps back into the top ten as Ladies & Gentlemen...The Best of George Michael leaps from 11 to 4 while David Bowie's new compilation, Legacy, also moves back in, going from 18 to 5.  Legacy is also number 1 on the Vinyl Albums chart.

The biggest selling album in the U.K. last year that was actually released in 2016, Together by Michael Ball & Alfie Boe drops from 3 to 6 in its tenth week of release. Elvis Presley's The Wonder of You, now out one week short of three months, goes 4 to 7, and the Rolling Stones' Blue and Lonesome falls 5 to 10.

Dropping out of the top ten were Rick Astley's 50 (10 to 14) and Robbie Williams' The Heavy Entertainment Show (8 to 16).

New to the British Albums chart is the Dropkick Murphys' 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory, at number 68. That gives them their highest charting album ever in the U.K., passing 2011's Going Out in Style which peaked at 85.

The Albums chart is topped by Little Mix with Glory Days, giving them the album by a female vocal group with the most weeks at number 1 since the Spice Girls. They're followed by Tong, Night People by You Me at Six, Michael and Bowie.

Bowie's Blackstar is at the top of the Record Store Sales chart while the Stones top the Jazz and Blues Chart.

Ed Sheeran takes the top two spots on the Singles chart with Shape of You and Castle on the Hill followed by Human by Rag 'N' Bone Man, Rockabye by Clean Bandit and Touch by Little Mix.
