For me the singer's hand is distracting. If the shot were taken at a point where it doesn't obstruct the singer's face, it would help the composition greatly. The crop could also have benefited from a little more space on the RHS, as the current crop is a little claustrophobic as mentioned by Focus_Man above.
The singer's face is also quite underexposed, probably due to the white shirt throwing off your metering. Although this would result in clipped highlights on the shirt, I find this less of an issue, so long as the singer's face is clear and well exposed. I understand flash may not have been an option, as it often isn't with music photography. A pop of flash, carefully balanced with the ambient lighting would lift this image, if allowed.
Red lights can be a real issue with digital cameras. Boosting the green and blue channels slightly during editing can help to bring out detail and even up the colour slightly but the exposure needs to be bang-on in camera to be able to do this effectively.
I hope this helps.
claustrophobic is just what I wanted ... thanks Southend ... live gigs always have strange light.
