    how much are you willing to spend?

    many compacts struggle in low light through noise and not being great wide open.

    i shoot alot of gigs and eventually resorted to a DSLR, however some of the better compacts will do the job, look at the olympus C8080? something like that, its got a good max apature (f1.8) and is quite a good camere so im told

    good luck :)

    im sure others will be better at recommending than me!

    I have heard good reports about the Fuji F10 with usable images at ISO 1600, no personal experience but have a look at www.steves-digicams.com and www.dpreview.com for reviews and ISO comparisons in low light.

    You will probably want a DSLR inorder to capture the action with out any lag - with a DSLR you can then get a fast lens such as a F1.8 lens.

    whats your budget
