Well at least it's doing better on pre-orders there than here which is nowhere to be seen.
Album sales are much more important, so fingers crossed that that is a success.

Other releases due out later than LIG are already in the top 30 on iTunes pre-orders.....I'm so concerned....

Same. The fact that the album sale are pretty low at the moment gives it has a fair chance of reaching that number 1

I think that is realistic tbh. She isn't up against anyone significant on her release week, and even if she doesn't debut at #1, the album could rise to it later on after T4OTB and Ray of Sunshine....

I'm seriously hoping they have some major promo coming up, even if they're saving it for the album release week.

That's just the Revel concerts...it's only 4 nights. Her proper world starts beginning of next year.

So what's happening with Alexandra's tour, she said she's touring very soon with dates coming in next few weeks (during last Ustream she said that I think)

I don't think she should do a UK tour. Let's be realistic, she's not going to be able to sell out the 02 arena which is obviously where she'll be performing...places like the 02, Manchester MEN etc. The media will make a huge deal of her not selling out too. She needs to just ride this era out and then concentrate on the U.S.

She said it will be announced in June.

She will be doing smaller venues but it's better than nothing.

I think people are getting far too carried away with the talk of a US launch. Shouldn't we wait for something concrete before opening the champagne?

They do look good. I just wonder how that translates into sales. She could do a UK tour, but only do like 8 arenas. And have the tour in mid 2013 to give it time to sell out.

But the ANL did help solidify her fanbase. I know radio has been crap with her, but she had a varied crowd. It can help her pay the bills too.

I'm concerned that she hasn't promoted LIG on any high profile platform in the UK at all...
