They're 1,500 behind today
Some members were discussing this a few pages back and they think that it’s being marketed as “The Greatest Hits Tour” to sell the last remaining ticketsIs this your now called ‘The Greatest Hits Tour’? Picture on H Instagram showing Sophie supporting them on tour and says ‘Steps Greatest Hits Tour’ on image. Thought Steps 25 wasn’t till next year?
They did have a ticket bundle on sale yesterday but like Steps' vinyls I doubt they'd have shipped yet plus Manics have another ticket bundle for another gig which will no doubt push a few more sales.Was yesterday the Manic’s ticket bundle? If we’ve got the vinyls to be dispatched and the ticket bundle then this could be tight.
I wish they’d hurry up with the Afterparty. I think we’d have it

In related news, their midweek in Australia was incredibly high- with ARIA predicting it’ll land in the top 10 (their highest position since Step One back in 1998)
If "So Pop" would've gone ahead I think they would have had a bit of a resurgence here. People seemed really perched for them.Would be amazing if they can achieve this
Steps are being let down by vinyl sales, and to a lesser extent cassette sales. It’s unfortunate that BMG didn’t consider it worthwhile to do variants of those formats on this occasion.
In Tuesday’s midweeks, this was the formats breakdown:
1. 19,962 - Manic Street Preachers
2. 18,864 - Steps
365 Streaming (I’m pleasantly surprised that Steps are achieving higher streams!)
They should do comps with digital albums being given, isn't that easier as they don't have to ship. Unless they then rely on the person actually downloading it to count.
