Aerosmith (or more specifically, Steven Tyler) is terrible for this. Steven gets prompts from stage manager before every song, and then has the first line of the song read to him for several tracks (including Walk this Way, which they've been playing for 35+ years).

I remember doing Aerosmith and dialing into the IEM feeds many moons ago. It was the final show of the tour and the last two shows were late added shows to original tour list. As such, they got a new monitor engineer for these two shows. The WHOLE show, you could hear the band just ripping the guy to shreds on the talkback mic. "We need the drums to be fucking CRISP! Don't you know what drums are supposed to sound like?!"

The best part was for the final song with Walk this Way. Right before the song starts, we hear crew talkback "Joe Perry guitar is down, repeat, no guitar, no guitar." They start the song anyways and when it comes to the signature guitar riff from Perry, you just hear Steve Tyler mime it under his breathe into the microphone. This goes on for two verse and then they finally got the guitar rig back up, although it still sounded messed up.

At the end of the show, Steven goes "Thank you Sacramento! It was a great show and a great night!" or something along those lines. These washed up rock stars couldn't wait to end the show and go on their winter break after that miserable show.

And that's some of the fun with IEM recordings that you'd never get with stealth microphone recordings.
