Live from Faraway Stables is a 2003 live album and concert film by Australian alternative rock band Silverchair. It was recorded at their concert held on 19 April 2003, at Newcastle Civic Theatre in the band's home-town of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia,[5] and was the second show to be held there[6] during the band's Across the Night world tour of March to June 2003.[7] It is Silverchair's first live release.[8]

On all shows of the Across the Night tour, the concert was divided into two sets,[9] which were introduced on the three large video screens above the stage as "Act 1" and "Act 2"; the respective CDs and DVDs in the album are labelled in the same manner.[10] "Act 1", which showcased mainly quieter and more experimental material,[11] was "dominated" by songs from the band's then-latest studio album, Diorama, and was marked by "grand orchestrated sections (replicated by two extra keyboards); dramatic flourishes, both vocally and instrumentally; [and] an almost parodic leap into prog rock's 'look at me, look at me' shifts of form and time."[12] "Act 2", which consisted of heavier rock songs,[13] saw the band "revert to more of a hard rock set-up, with the cabaret touches junked for less subtle, but brutally effective delivery."[14]

The album spent three weeks on the Australian ARIA Charts, peaking at #13.[15] It has been certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association.[16] The original two-CD/two-DVD release was made available in both CD-sized and DVD-sized packaging.
