You could try taking a few photos at the location, on the day before, at about the same time of day, standing where you plan to be, at different settings.

When you get home and download the photos to your computer, you'll know what works and what doesn't.

If this is going to happen outdoors, there's sure to be a lot of dust in the air, due to the audience moving around - so try to avoid changing lenses.

Enjoy the concert! 8)

Kriss
Any chance for us to get a glimpse of what you took ?
No copyright infringement I hope :)
We all just might learn something after all
Nothing beats practical though theory helps !

my only tips really are (beginner tips)
take a tripod and hope and pray when you press the button your guys on stage are jumping around
alot of photo is take of them i have to time just right

and if possible when using a tripod DO NOT USE A FLASH
let the natural lights of the band be your flash you get so many cooler effects

for example i took on last week of 3 girls dancing in front of the guys

the guys are lit up in blue light and the girls are a black sillouttee it was really cool .


and YES i like the scorpions i maybe somewhat young (27yo) but i still love that corny 80's hair metal . it will always have a soft spot in my heart
