Pearl Jam has become the first band ever to land five
new albums on the top 200 chart simultaneously. Five of the rock band’s 25 double-disc concert recordings from their recent
European tour will appear on next week’s chart, to be published Thursday: Katowice
6/16 (#103), Milan 6/22 (#125), Verona 6/20 (#134), London 5/30 (#137) and
Hamburg 6/26 (#175), according to SoundScan data released Wednesday (Oct. 4).
The feat tops the previous record of four albums debuting at once, set by late Tejano
singer Selena in 1995.
