Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{FooFighters}} lead singer Dave Grohl broke his leg during a tour, but instead of stopping the concert, he just kept playing and singing, even while a paramedic was putting bandages on his broken leg, even if fans might have accepted if he stopped the song while his leg was being treated. The next several concerts, he played while sitting on Gibson's Guitar-Throne he had borrowed.
* 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.

Compare ThrowItIn. See also AllPartOfTheShow, DeadlineNews, PushedInFrontOfTheAudience. Not to be confused (although it often overlaps) with TheShowMustGoWrong. In the worst-case scenario this can also overlap with FatalMethodActing.

FatalMethodActing-- which, it's sometimes been remarked, is about the only acceptable excuse for missing your show.

** Turning the archaic movie "The Dueling Cavalier" into a musical ("The Singing Cavalier") also qualifies for this trope.

* ''The Play that Goes Wrong'' and its spiritual successor ''Peter Pan Goes Wrong'' can be considered homages to this trope. Lines are fluffed, cues are missed, props are destroyed, the lighting fails and the wrong music plays, but the (fictional) cast and crew soldier on to the end as the set collapses around them.

** Jon's successor, Trevor Noah, has shown similar dedication on ''Series/TheDailyShowWithTrevorNoah''. On November 4, 2015, he had to undergo an emergency appendectomy, so there was no show that day. But ''the very next day'', November 5, he was back on air, even though he'd been given as much time as he wanted to recover from Comedy Central.

Added DiffLines:

* In the 2005 remake of ''Film/FunWithDickAndJane'', Dick and Jane steal from a coffee shop in one scene. According to the DVD commentary, Tea Leoni, who played Jane, dislocated her shoulder while shooting the part where she slides on the counter, but kept going anyway. You'll see that when the scene ends that she's struggling to hold the things they steal.

* 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.
