Several years ago I saw John Lee Hooker play in a small club, and he did the expected encore thing and left the stage. But the audience was having none of it, we kept stomping, cheering, and carrying on for several minutes after he left the stage the second time (and the house lights had come up) until he finally brought the band back out, said "Y'all are crazy" and played Boom Boom again (probably because they were out of songs that the band had practiced). I think it might have been the most genuinely spontaneous encore I've ever seen.
