I just can't predict the light for the next shot.
I do a lot of events like concerts, theater etc.

Actualy, you should look at your exif data and see just how much it does change, exposure wise. I was looking at your gallary: http://teamexcalibur.se/pictures/yrangalleri/index.htm

and the majority of the shots are within 1/2 an EV of 1/200 at f4.8 and ISO 400. and besides, you don't need to know what exposure the next shot is, only the dinamic range... as you can still use auto exposure with EC to move the "center" to the right, even if the center is at a different exposure every time.

In any case, exposing to the right can help, but most camera's today have more DR then slide film anyway, and excelent results can be had without it. It certinly isn't necessary. but knowing how to expose in a controled way is

Your work looks to be top notch, btw!
