'Meteora''s doing quite well then...

LINKIN PARK‘s new album ‘METEORA’ looks set to sell a million copies in its first week in the US.

According to, the album will easily push 50 Cent’s ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ off the top spot when the Billboard Top 200 is announced next Wednesday (April 2).

Linkin Park‘s last album, 2000’s ‘Hybrid Theory’, sold 50,000 copies in its first week in stores, but has since sold over eight million copies.

The band are likely to join the bill of the Reading and Leeds legs of the Carling Weekend Festival from August 23 to 25.
