* Music/WeirdAlYankovic was on tour when he heard that his parents were found dead from carbon-monoxide poisoning. He continued with the tour, later commenting that doing that (along with the support he received from fans) helped him to get through it.

* Played for laughs in the ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' episode where Bobby inherits a famous ventriloquist's dummy that was modeled after a stereotypical football-playing high school A-student... only to become dismayed when his father likes the dummy's "antics" more than Bobby's own. Bobby grows to hate this new attention, but mutters "the show must go on" when he realizes that being at the edge of the spotlight is better than not having attention at all. (Luckily, the trope is kinda subverted in the end when Hank isn't a total bastard - after the first dummy is destroyed, he decides to nurture Bobby by building him a new dummy that far more resembles the boy himself.)

* Naturally, anybody who has appeared in live performances can testify to problems involved in cast members, problems with props or any number of unforeseen difficulties. The universal rallying cry is, in all circumstances, the Trope Title.

* Naturally, anybody who has appeared in live performances can testify to problems involved in cast members, problems with props or any number of unforeseen difficulties. The universal rallying cry is, in all circumstances, the Trope Title. This is why it is common practice for theatrical productions to hire stand-in actors who are available at a moment's notice to cover for a performer who is forced to miss a show due to illness or other reason.

* Axl Rose recently did the same as the above-mentioned Dave Grohl when he broke a leg during a show. Instead of canceling the concert or the remainder of the tour, he just continued singing sitting down.

Needless to say, the audience was in stitches, and Red spent the interval pulling faces, holding his nose, and telling the cow "No ad-libbing!"

** A specific example is Wrestling/TheUndertaker at the 2010 ''Elimination Chamber'' pay-per-view, who got ''set on fire'' during his entrance due to mistimed/misaligned pyrotechnics going off. Instead of going backstage to get the injury treated, he went down to the ring where he was in a pod for his cue, being handed bottles of water to douse himself with in the meantime.
