** By the way, Alice invented this stuff. He's vaudeville. Which is why [[TheMarxBrothers Groucho]] was such a fan.

* The video game ''BrutalLegend'' combines this with MagicMusic: Guitar solos cause cataclysmic events, stage lights burn people and pyrotechnics do damage in combat.

* Music/{{Lordi}}. First of all every member of the band has an elaborate monster costume. When they participated in the EurovisionSongContest in 2006 (which they won, by the way), there was some discussion about would their pyrotechnics be safe to use. They got to use them in the end. Videos of their song "Hard Rock Hallelujah" are easy to find on Youtube, though the compression quality is likely to render them as bloody vomit.

* The BlueOysterCult pioneered the use of lasers onstage to enhance a performance. This was in 1975, some years before MTV, an age where most groups stuck to music only. The band's laser equipment was cumbersome and frequently unreliable, but when it worked, it was spectacular. It even provoked a Congressional investigation into how safe lasers were as a form of entertainment.

** Floyd havce a long history of enhancing their stage performances. Even in 1966-67, the psychedelic light show and backscreened film loops which accompanied their spaced-out music made them notorious to MoralGuardians scared of the deleterious effects of LSD.

** In an illustration for ''The Literature/{{Discworld}} Calendar 2015'', Stephen Player shows the Band With Rocks In playing at the Mended Drum. On either side of the stage is a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent swamp dragon]], sending out a burst of flame.

* A similar effect in Whitesnake's DressRehearsalVideo for "Here I Go Again." Interestingly, lead singer David Coverdale gave an interview shortly thereafter in which he forswore the use of pyrotechnics altogether, saying he didn't want an explosion to get a bigger cheer than his own performance.
* DefLeppard's 1983 tour featured more fireworks than a Fourth Of July celebration in Washington D.C. Understandable, though, as the album was titled ''Pyromania''.

* Gene Simmons of {{Kiss}} is most famous for breathing fire during their shows.
** How can we forget Ace Frehley of {{Kiss}} playing a guitar while it was on fire? Or his rocket launcher guitar?
*** A move he most likely aped from Jimi Hendrix.

* Music/{{Queensryche}}'s "Building Empires" tour featured wall-sized twin projection screens on which relevant imagery could be displayed. These screens were a hold-over from the videos for their previous album, ''OperationMindcrime'', and were utilized in a presentation of ''Mindcrime'' in its entirety (this formed the basis of the ''Operation:Livecrime'' video and album set).

* In ''AlanWake'', the band The Old Gods of Asgard were apparently quite fond of pyrotechnics, which turns out to come in handy for fighting creatures that are weak to light.
