    I havent tried concert photography, but ISO 400-800 indoor seems quite usable with a bit of noise.

    what type of concert?

    from personal experience, stage concert (orchestra) photography, ISO 400 is more than enough as the stage would be brightly lit

    others like dance or rock bands would be different as lighting changes consistently

    do note that some places do not allow (flash) photography too, especially esplanade
