Chain Reaction is a studio album by Australian singer John Farnham. The album was released in Australia on September 24th 1990 on CD, cassette tape and LP. It was the highest selling album in Australia that year, debuting at #1 on the ARIA charts.

The album had four singles released under it, the first three of them yielding top 10 status, with the title track reaching #3 in August, “That’s Freedom” at #5 in September and “Burn For You” reaching #5 in December. A fourth single, “In Days to Come”, was released early the following year, peaking at #41.

The album was promoted by a nationwide tour titled, “The Chain Reaction Tour,” which concluded with a televised performance at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, when it was then called the Flinders Park National Tennis Centre, on approximately December 14th or 15th in 1990. This performance aired on Australia’s Channel Seven and was released shortly after as a VHS video cassette. This cassette was reissued as a DVD entitled Chain Reaction Live In Concert on 13 November 2005.
