For "Astronaut", 250 to 300K sounds about right for the US, thought I've heard worldwide sales have been closer to 2 million. "So Red The Rose" was certified platinum in the US for sales of 1 million.

Duran Duran, Astronaut was certified GOLD in the US. Meaning sales of 500,000 or more. So Red The Rose by Arcadia was certified PLATUNUM with sales over 1,000,000 copies. Sales have probably gone up with the availability of iTunes and a recent remastered & expanded version of the Arcadia release.

I have extensive knowledge of the band`s official and promo releases in the US and the UK. I`m not extremely knowledgable in Andy and Roger Taylor`s solo efforts since being away from the band, but I do have a good level of expertise in Arcadia and The Power Station history as well.


I have been collecting vinyl and CDs now for the last 19 years on the band and their side projects.
