Concert Features: Suggestions?

As I expand's content and think about improvements, I'd like to ask you, the readers, if there are any aspects of concert photography you'd like covered in show write-ups and other how-to/tips features.

For the show write-ups, the content breaks down into three primary categories:

  1. The concert experience/narrative
  2. The images
  3. The shooting notes (lighting, lenses, positioning, misc. technique)

Some of the write-ups have a more organic format that mixes the three (like the recent Avenged Sevenfold post), while others are more distinctly separate (like the post for HIM).

Do you have a preference between the two? Also, is there anything else you'd like covered that I'm not already hitting?

And beyond concert-specific coverage, do you have any suggestions for articles you'd like to see on how-to or concert photography in general?

Thanks, I look forward to any suggestions you might have.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
