"MDNA World Tour" on Billboard Charts

The album version of Madonna's "MDNA World Tour" concert video release debuts at No. 90 with 4,000 sold. It was issued only as a digital album and a CD-R on demand from Amazon.com. It is her 26th chart entry on the Billboard 200.
Meanwhile, on the Music Video Sales chart, the blu-ray and DVD version of the "MDNA World Tour" release combine to sell 11,000 for a No. 1 debut. It's her 10th No. 1 and sixth chart-topper in a row.
Her last live album and video release, 2010's "Sticky & Sweet Tour," was released on blu-ray, CD/DVD and as a digital album. The former configuration enabled its No. 1 debut on Music Video Sales with 5,000, while the latter two combined for a No. 10 arrival on the Billboard 200 (28,000).
Had "MDNA World Tour" been issued on traditional CD and CD/DVD (and/or CD/blu-ray combo), then the album would have naturally charted much higher than No. 90 on the Billboard 200.
