Have you actually been on stage and may barely see what you were performing due to poor lighting? This can result in troubles because you may mess up what you are playing. If you think about it, you may even get hurt or break equipment because being in darkness can result in you to trip or knock into objects. Luckily there are DJ stage lighting effects which are worth contemplating building to your gear. Not only should you be able to see what you are performing clearer, you have the ability to boost the atmosphere which in the end should lead to a greater high quality performance.

That's what you want to do. Capture your whole show. Trust me a mostly master shot won't get boring at all. The key is to use this footage later as a promotional video of you as an artist. It's not meant to be some slick MTV style music video with quick cuts and crazy shots.
The best piece of advice that can be given when shooting indoors, in these conditions, is to experiment with your settings and shoot as much as possible. Only then will you understand how to become a master at concert photography.
