Nagisa Shirai's 2001 rendition, choreographed by Angelin Preljocaj, may be a match. Link to a video here. Clearly you may wish whether this is safe for work, depending on your IT department's policy on uneven surfaces.

The closest example I can think of is the use of the "casket vocal track" in Black One by Sunn O))). Scott "Malefic" Conner of Xasthur is claustrophobic so they decided his vocal contributions to "Báthory Erzsébet" would be best recorded (and enhanced with real feeling) by locking him inside a casket.

"The Grand Tour" seems not to have been a formal concert or entertainment series or circuit, but rather the name given to world tours by artists who followed, or roughly followed, a traditional Grand Tour route. For example, here's a description of a family Grand Tour taken in the 1920s on the Canadian Pacific line. Presumably, then, an artist ...

(as pointed out in the comments, thanks @Wheat @Tim) This video does not actually appear to be the Beatles, although it is billed as though it were. As far as I can tell, there's no version with the legitimate original song on YouTube, probably because of copyright issues. Even in the original version, however, the lead singer is Ringo Starr, the drummer ...

Morten is using in-ear monitors which give an accurate rendition of sound for vocal performers. Often when performing without you, a singer will confront a room where the acoustics make it impossible to hear certain instruments or the band, and all you really experience are the drums. In an acoustic situation the chances of the latter are negligible but the ...

There's always the chance, in an acoustic performance, that the other instruments aren't actually loud enough for the vocalist when he's belting it out. It's commonplace to use in-ear monitoring these days & once you've gone to the trouble of having your own personal, fits only you & no-one else, in-ear monitors - at anything from £200 to £1000 - ...

I can't speak for this particular case because I can't identify exactly what he does have in his ears, but I can have a few hypothesis based on my experience. Slight attenuation of outside sound, even with a few dB will prevent fatigue. In loud live shows, musician can protect themselves with higher protection (for example -35 dB) to prevent ear damage, but ...

Ian Gillan included a second album with the early releases of 'Glory Road' which contained what could be considered a 'gag reel' or 'outtakes' Glory Road came as a limited edition double LP, and contained the free LP For Gillan Fans Only. When Glory Road was eventually released on CD, most of the For Gillan Fans Only material was included as bonus tracks. ...

No, it doesn't appear that there are. All-Star has appeared in the movies Mystery Men, the Shrek series, Digimon: the Movie, and Rat Race. However none of those were really musicals, and it doesn't appear that there's a well-known musical it was ever a number in (including not in the Shrek musical). If honest-to-gawd movie musicals count, you could pick ...

"Torture as an Instrument of Music", by John T. Hamilton, describes instances in which torture has been (purported to be) used to produce music as its result. Different, obviously, from the question of an artist choosing to cause themselves pain, but related, the article can be found at https://www.academia.edu/29314305/...

I've gone through Meatloaf's set lists, and while it is not exhaustive, I can't locate any reference that he performed this song live. Also, I can't find any reference to Meatloaf performing this song on Youtube, something that you would expect to find for an artist of this fame.

Depending on how indulgent your teachers are, and how willing they are to stretch a point, you might argue that it was included in the movie "musical" Shrek. Ironically, while there was an actual legitimate musical created from Shrek, it did not include that song. I have to admit, I'm bemused that you're choosing for your teen-aged rebellion a song that ...

The Beatles included bits of studio chatter and noodling around as interstitial material, or even as sound effects within songs on albums such as Let it Be and Abbey Road. Since then, many other artists have done the same. For example, Ben Folds does a few bars of an alternate rendition of his and Nick Hornby's song "Belinda" as a hidden track on the ...

The closest you are going to get is gongshow and cheese playlists. Dr. Demento's radio show has been partly this (and otherwise more delightful radio show that plays straight up comedy.) The Gong Show on TV has historically played this sort of material.
