* During a performance of TheBarberOfSeville, American mezzo-soprano Joyce Di Donato fell onstage and broke her fibula. Ignoring the pain, she finished the rest of the act hobbling around the stage and used crutches for the rest of the opera. And as if this wasn't enough, Di Donato refused to let her injury prevent her from singing in the rest of her scheduled performances and sang the role of Rosina from a wheelchair for the five remaining shows in her schedule. If one is familiar with the insane difficulty that is inherent to singing the works of Gioacchino Rossini, even while standing upright and in no pain whatever, the respect level for Di Donato's dedication can't help but go higher.

* This happened on Raw once with Wrestling/JerryLawler, who, in the middle of a tag team match he was calling, suffered a heart attack. There were several things amiss. The commentary had fallen silent, the crowd (along with one Wrestling/{{Kane}}) was looking at the announce table and something was clearly happening. The heart attack was later announced by Wrestling/MichaelCole, who seemed visibly shaken up. The show continued, but there was no commentary throughout the rest of the show, other than Cole providing updates on his condition. The rest of the show felt so... cold after this.

* ''Film/BlackAndTan'': "Keep the show on!", cries the MC after Fredi has a heart attack while dancing onstage. He hustles the dancing girls onstage, but the curtain falls soon after anyway.

It must also be remembered that for live entertainers, not only is it about making sure people get their money's worth or ensuring a production continues, ''performing is something they've dedicated their lives to.'' It's not something they do, it's who they are, and it's a point of professional pride that no matter what, the show must go on.

on. Even for those who take a less high-minded view, they are ''professionals'' after all-- meaning [[MoneyDearBoy if the show doesn't go on, nobody gets their paycheck]].

* During a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden, in june 2015, Music/FooFighters guitarist Music/DaveGrohl fell off the stage and broke one of his legs. He excused himself for a short period while the other Foo Fighters kept playing, then returned to the stage, carried by paramedics who put him in a chair. He kept playing for over two hours - even while the paramedics were putting his leg in a cast.

* The 1990 revival of ''ToTellTheTruth'' got hit hard with this. First, Creator/{{NBC}} accidentally aired the pilot, which was hosted by Richard Kline, on the East Coast instead of the true first episode. The show went to series with Gordon Elliott as host, but he got fired over a salary dispute, so Lynn Swann moved from the celebrity panel to the host's seat. However, Swann often had schedule conflicts, so he quit and Creator/AlexTrebek of ''Jeopardy!'' fame took over. Trebek then had to miss two episodes because his wife went into labor, so show creator Creator/MarkGoodson guest-hosted.
