* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'' episode "[[Recap/MiloMurphysLawS1E08SmoothOperator Smooth Opera-tor]]," [[BornUnlucky Milo]] says this early on, and then spends most of the episode trying to keep [[TheJinx his]] [[HereditaryCurse curse]] from ruining the opera, especially since his crush really wants to see it. Naturally this leads to him [[PushedInFrontOfTheAudience taking the place]] of one of the performers.
-->'''Opera Singer:''' ''I believe we've gone off-book, now/I believe this scene we're botching!''
-->'''Milo:''' ''But I feel we should go on/Because there's all these people watching!'' (motions to audience with forced smile)

* In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', the stunt extra aerobatic team messes up at Sheryl Nome's concert, causing [[TheHero Alto]] to [[WhatTheHellHero knock Sheryl off her several story high stage]]. Alto manages to recover and [[CatchAFallingStar catch her]], saving her from a fatal fall. Her reaction? Annoyance, and she tells him to get flying and make it look good while she continues singing, because the show must go on.
** Later in the same concert, an air raid siren sounds ushering everyone to the nearest shelter. Sheryl's reaction: "But I'm not finished singing yet!" The trope is subverted, as Cathy drags her off stage.

* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' examples:
** In ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' Minmay wanted to interrupt a concert due a sudden Zentraedi attack (that, unbeknownst to her, had actually boarded the ship), but Kaifun convinced her to continue to prevent the fans from panicking... And, she continued ''even when a group of battlepods showed up and stopped to listen to her concert'' (she ''did'' stop for a moment in shock when they appeared, but as soon as she saw they were just standing there she resumed singing). It wasn't until more combative Zentraedi endangered the public that she stopped her concert.

* This trope is prevalent in the ClassicDisneyShorts ''Disney/TheBandConcert'' and ''WesternAnimation/SymphonyHour''. No matter what's going on, MickeyMouse does his gosh-darn best to keep the music playing, even ''pulling a gun on'' ''WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck'' when he tries to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere bail out of the latter short]] when things keep going wrong.
