* Music/AmandaPalmer of The Dresden Dolls has made an ''art form'' out of this. She sees absolutely no use for a difference between herself and her audience, and treats her shows as fun get-togethers, asking random fans to sing with her, hold up her props, or come bring her wine in her hotel room for a makeshift party. Her absolute CrowningMomentOfAwesome was when, during a vaudeville tour across Europe, her crew got stuck in a different country because of the Iceland volcano. Instead of using her crew, she pulled two fans onto the stage to stay there throughout the show and play the theme from ''Film/{{Clue}}'' on her keyboard, while she ran around the stage between the songs acting out the theatre parts by herself "Creator/TimCurry style".

* The band VNV Nation requests that audiences sing along to Solitary (because [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "this song is our hymn and our anthem"]]), and (at least in the Pastperfect recordings) Harris will complain during various songs that they aren't singing along loud enough.

* Music/{{Nile}} has quite a few of these, as the songs often feature repeating chants, which lyricist Karl Sanders said was an attempt to call to mind a semi-ritualistic nature in keeping with the Egyptian sounding music. During some songs, particularly "4th Arra of Dagon," and "Black Seeds of Vengeance," the band will actually step away from the microphones, and simply chant along with the crowd ([[CrowningMomentOfAwesome which is often just as loud as the band itself]]). Lots of songs also feature sections where the audience is encouraged to chant rhythmically to the beat of the music, usually just some form of shouting. The result is quite cool.

* About a year after ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'' went viral, Creator/TeamStarkid were at the Azkatraz convention. A bunch of them (Darren Criss, Joey Richter, Matt Lang, Brian Holden, and Dylan Saunders, namely) were hanging out in the lobby, playing songs from it for the fans. Cue up [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHIhuHNRDEs "Get Back to Hogwarts"]], Joey telling everyone to sing along, and Darren being all verklempt that people know the lyrics to his songs. The CrowningMomentOfFunny is at 5:09 when the entire crowd yells "BITCH I AIN'T CHO CHANG!".

** Also the end of "The Will of One". K.I.L.R.O.Y. chants the final lines of the song through a vocoder, and is promptly [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome drowned out by the fans before long]].

** Particularly prominent within the live performances of Blank Space, in which Taylor struts menacingly across the stage carrying a golf club, telling the audience she has 'a lesson for them'. The audience chant the words 'Boys only want love if it's torture, don't say I didn't, say I didn't warn ya' until Taylor's echoes of the line become increasingly frantic andshe raises her hands, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome knocking every dancer on stage to the ground.]]

* ''Music/ChickCorea'' of all people managed to do this on a London concert, with a ''Synthesizer''. He made the audience copy a number of jazz phrazes, gradually making them harder to follow. The event crossed between CrowningMomentOfAwesome and CRMOF.

Added DiffLines:

** During Chester Bennington's [[AuthorExistenceFailure memorial concert]], when "Numb" rolled around, the stage was left empty. With no prompt, the audience sang the song from start to finish. Mike also invited them to sing Chester's parts in "In The End". They didn't just sing Chester's parts.

to:

* On the ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' soundtrack album, two choruses of the stadium rock pastiche "The Messanger" are sung by a distant crowd, presumably the audience at the Hide Park Free Festival. It even has the bit where Buddy suddenly comes back in on the last line.


Added DiffLines:

* Many Music/SteeleyeSpan songs, but especially their signature tune "All Around My Hat".

* Music/{{KISS}} is a band based around theatrical shows, pretty much all their songs are written for this. It's parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', where the singer holds the mic out to Lois for the chorus of "Rock and Roll All Nite"...and she gets the line horribly wrong.

** Music/{{Rush}} is very similar. At one point in Rush In Rio, the crowd sang along to "YYZ"...which is an instrumental.
