Major acts use it because they've got the crews and money to make such a setup work. I've seen a bar band effectively use this stuff, It all comes down to practice and knowing your equipment for them. Equipment always has the possibility of failing.

Click tracks aren't cheating. A lot of people can't play to a click correctly anyway. I know I couldn't use a click effectively live.
