The 70-200/2.8 GM II is fast and awesome, I would look at that.

Cheers Tony, this looks like something I am looking for. I will check it out

Not cheap but I photographed concerts at the SAP Center in San Jose as the team photographer for the Sharks and the arena photog - many acts making you shoot from sound board area - thus a 400mm f/2.8 is optimal. I would also use a 1.4x converter. Not cheap but will certainly put you up there with your competition.

Yes, swoon worthy for sure!
