If I were you, I would purchase a good introductory book to the camera. This one can be bought through our Amazon store: [b]Nikon D60 Digital Field Guide/b]. A few hours with a manual that will walk you through the basics of the camera will make you a decent concert photographer in a short time. It just takes a little work and lots of practice.
Do not for get a flash such as the SB600, 800 or 900.

Scott Kelby has a couple of pieces on doing concerts on his blog. One was done by a guest blogger, read this.
Hope these help.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

My approach is to use "S" shutter priority mode when the lights are changing too fast to go manual .
I leave the camera in auto-iso mode and let it go as high as it wants because you can fix noise later but you can't fix motion blur .
I use 1/125th as the lowest speed I'm prepared to drop to and if it gets darker than that , well then the picture should look dark as in the last picture shown . Since matrix metering is more consistent , but tends to over-expose , I use matrix metering with "-2" EV compensation dialed in to keep the black's 'black'.
At the last dance event I had 940 keepers out of 950 pictures so it seems to work for me .
