Upgrade from Canon 50mm f/1.8 to f/1.4?

I have a Canon 400D and take a lot of shots of live music in low light conditions. The two lens I use are Canon 50mm f/1.8 and 85mm f/1.8. Is it worthwhile upgrading to the 50mm f/1.4? It is not so much that I need the extra aperture, but I assume the f/1.4 would focus better. Sometimes the f/1.8 doesn't focus very well in low light.

Also would upgrading my body help improve the focusing of the 50mm f/1.8 in low light? I will probably upgrade to a 60D or 7D within the next year or so.
