Ringside is a live album released by Cold Chisel in 2003. Recorded over 4 nights in June 2003,[1] it spent 7 weeks in the Australian charts, peaking at number 27.[2]

Album details[edit]

The album contains two Steve Prestwich songs ("Lovelight", "All I Wanna Do") not released on any other Cold Chisel album, and "Fallen Angel" that later appeared on a solo Don Walker album. These were the first Cold Chisel songs to feature Prestwich and Walker on lead vocals.

Ringside features covers of Johnny Cash's "Big River", the standard "Cry Me a River", and Dragon's "Sunshine", written by Walker's friend Paul Hewson.

The concert was an attempt to feature the band, "performing in a smaller, intimate environment," and often, "in an acoustic format."[3] Inspired by Elvis Presley's 1968 comeback special, there was a 360 degree view of the rotating stage, with the furthest seats from the stage being within 30 metres.[4]
