Rolling Stones Score Their 50th Chart Entry

The Rolling Stones’ “50 and Counting” tour has resulted in yet another milestone for the legendary rock group. In an interesting bit of symmetry, their ‘Hyde Park Live’ album is their 50th album to reach the Billboard 200 chart.

The magazine is reporting that the 19-track set, culled from their live shows at London’s Hyde Park on July 6 and 13, debuted in the No. 19 spot this week. This marks the group’s 45th Top 40 chart entry on the chart. The Stones’ Hyde Park shows were among the last live shows of the Stones’ “50 and Counting Tour” which wound its way through North America earlier this year.

Only a limited amount of groups can lay claim to have placed as many or more albums in the Top 40. With 45 Top 40 chart entries, The Stones are comfortably ahead of Bob Dylan and The Beatles, each of whom respectively have 43 and 39 Top 40 Albums. Only three acts have more Top 40 albums than the Stones: Barbara Streisand (50), Elvis Presley (52) and Frank Sinatra (56).

Given the fact that The Rolling Stones are still going relatively strong, they could very well eclipse Sinatra’s record before the sun sets on their illustrious career.

‘Hyde Park Live’ is exclusive to iTunes through Aug. 19.
