Default Concert settings

Hi all, I'm going to a concert next week, it's in a stadium and will be starting around dusk into the darkness. I want to take a few shots of the singer probably using the zoom, any idea on settings that may be appropriate?

For starters, please tell what camera and/or equipment you will be working with and where your seats are located, like an approximate distance from your shooting position to the stage.

Agree with Sarah - that information is key. Additionally you probably need to find out what the camera policy is going to be for that specific concert. Some bands are all for people taking photos and others have restrictions that effectively make it impossible to get quality shots unless you're in the front 5 rows or so.

Hi all, sorry couldn't visit for a few days, I will be using the FZ38 and will be in the throng of people around the stage, probably about the distance of the second tier of people surrounding the stage in this picture I plucked off of Google images.
