Guns N’ Roses classic ‘Sweet Child O Mine’ has returned to the Australian chart this week on news of the upcoming tour.
2,510 people bought ‘Sweet Child O Mine’ in Australia in the past week and that was enough to generate a no. 90 ARIA position for the Gunners classic.
That was more than Justin Bieber ‘As Long As You Love Me’, Katy Perry ‘Firework’ and Black Keys ‘Lonely Boy’ sold last week.
Guns N’ Roses ‘Greatest Hits’ also moved 1,475 units last week placing it as the 111th biggest selling album of the week across Australia in the past 7 days.
‘Sweet Child O Mine’ was the third single from the 1987 album ‘Appetite For Destruction’ after ‘Its So Easy’ and ‘Welcome To The Jungle’. The song gave Guns N’ Roses their only number one it in the USA.
Sheryl Crow covered the song for the Adam Sandler ‘Big Daddy’. The Gunners version has also appeared in ‘Bad Dreams’, ‘The Wrestler’ and ‘State of Grace’.
