Please help

I go to alot of music gigs and want a new camera but can't decide what to buy, everybody writes about nature and sports pics which are completely different light. :confused: All I do know is that I want

Great pictures of the band or close up of friends
zoom - as I am too old to stand at the front anymore (i want great zoom without loosing pic quality)
sound - for video
flash or help with taking better pictures when background is bright
automatic focus but not of the nearest object
stabilisation to stop fuzzy pictures

I have looked at Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 x18 zoom & Olympus SP-590 x26 zoom but i'm sure i'm missing other possible candidates :confused:

its always difficult to advise on what you should buy. what you should look for is one that is good in low light canon ixus 980 is looks good, also size of camera and your budget . sorry cant help much more
