Concert photography can be some of the trickiest you'll ever encounter. The thing to remember is that the camera has an electronic eye but not an electronic brain -- it cannot see light and color the way that you can (regardless of the kind of camera you have). Under the harsh lights of a stage -- at a distance (even in the first rows) -- the camera is easily fooled.
That means you're going to need to experiment -- especially if you use that zoom alot. The nice thing about digital is that image cropping afterwards with editing software, especially if you shoot at the highest resolutions, means you don't have to use that zoom all the way, which will limit the accuracy of the camera's systems to read the light especially right. If you get a chance to see any kind of production before you go in June I'd recommend you do so, just to practice.
Also, make sure you turn off the flash, take plenty of memory and batteries.
