    Well as both Kodak & Fuji dropped their specialist push processable E6 film I had no option but go digital for rock/blues concerts. The only major difference is a vast increase in quality !!!

    But that's not what you wanted to hear. On the other hand I doubt the boncers would appreciate there is any difference between a film slr or a digital slr, or a point & shoot film camera compared to a point & shoot digital - it's the professional cameras and just as importantly the fast lenses they don't allow in.

    And probably they'd not regard a Leica (or Voigtlander or ZI) RF as 'professional' anyway, though a Noctilux might be pushing your luck. 'Professional' is often just code for 'big SLRs'.

    Though in colour I'd probably do the same as you and go for the M8 over the MP: that's what I've been doing lately at concerts, even though it's noisier. In B+W, no contest, of course.

    Fuji's Provia 400X is now their Specialist Push-Processable E-6 film. I've seen some excellent results from it at ISO3200 (Albeit in 120 form).

    WOW!!
    No film cameras? Where's this event held?
    The Chicago based Blues and Jazz fest is a free-for-all, and I do mean free. It's held outdoors with first come first serve seating. Cameras welcome. All types. Getting close to the stage is not a problem, people are milling around the front all night.
