Excellent photos!

Stage lighting is usually overly red except for special effects. I always shoot RAW so I can adjust WB easily in pp. There is usually something in the photo that is neutral gray, even if only a mic. I eyedropper on neutral gray, then add back the amount of yellow that returns the warm 'stage' look without dominating the colors. If lighting changes during the show, I repeat that pp exercise. Otherwise I copy the edits (I use LR4, with Photoshop CS5 for occasional trickier edits) and paste them into all the photos taken under similar lighting conditions.
