If your considering buying one of the three and can afford the d4s, then rent one.  Maybe you should consider the d800 or d800e also for less than half the price of the d4s.  The d800 also has an excellent af and even if there is a little more noise on the d800, you can down sample and I bet the noise level will look the same as the d4s.  Actually unless your shooting over an iso of 3200 there should not be a problem with the d800.  With the battery grip on the d800 you can do 5 frames a second which should be fast enough for the concert.

I would think that the 51 point dynamic focus on the d4s or d800 is better than the 39 point af on the df, plus faster setting changes.
