(hennemusic) Rush has topped multiple US charts with the recent release of a series of 40th anniversary editions of their 1981 classic, "Moving Pictures." According to Billboard, the reissues have landed the project at No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums and Top Catalog Albums charts.

"Moving Pictures" also re-enters the Top Album Sales list at No. 2 and the Billboard 200 at No. 11 to deliver the Canadian band their highest rank in nearly a decade.

The 2022 reissues sold 18,000 copies in the US in the week ending April 21, an increase of 7,847% compared to its sales in the previous week. It marks the band's best sales week in over six years, since "R40 Live" sold 24,000 copies in its debut week, when it arrived at No. 14 on Top Album Sales in December of 2015.
