“Wham Bam Thank You Fans!”

Since David Bowie made a special announcement on January 8…

The Next Day reached #1 on the iTunes pre-order chart in 26 countries

‘Where Are We Now?’ currently sits at #6 on the UK Official Singles Chart

Pre-orders of the three formats of The Next Day occupied the top three slots on Amazon UK

The David Bowie (Official) Facebook page reached 5.2 million people in seven days

There have been over a million views of the ‘Where Are We Now?’ video on VEMO/YouTube

‘Likes’ for a post on the David Bowie (Official) Facebook page reached a new record when they topped the 100k mark for the Bowie birthday post

‘Comments’ on the same post reached over 8.5k. That’s a lot of Birthday greetings

At one point during the week, there were an astonishing 15 different Bowie back catalogue albums in Amazon UK’s Most Wished For in Glam Rock Top 20 and more than half of the Top 50 was taken up with Bowie releases too

If every word of every article written about David Bowie on Earth since January 8 were placed end to end, they would reach to Mars and back! *
