Led Zeppelin‘s new best of collection ‘Mothership‘ has become HMV’s biggest selling album this week, in the wake of the band’s acclaimed reunion concert on Monday night (December 10).

A spokesman for UK based music retailer HMV, Genarro Castaldo reports that ‘Mothership‘ was their highest-selling album yesterday, across their 240 branches.

“Sales of their album have had a massive, massive boost by the concert. It was our best-selling album today, up from number eight last week. Led Zeppelin t-shirts have also been our most popular since the concert.”

Castaldo also added that sales of the band’s entire back catalogue are also up by 500 per cent since the concert took place at London’s O2 Arena.

‘Stairway To Heaven’ became Led Zeppelin’s first single to re-chart in the Top 40 last month, when the group’s back catalogue became available to download for the first time.

Meanwhile, rumours of a two-year world tour to follow the O2 Arena success are flying – click here for details!
