good concert/live lens combo on FF

hey guys

i am a concert photographer and want to upgrade my equipment..

i currently have

tamron 28-75m 2.8
canon 50mm 1.8 mark I (though with some troubles lately)
canon 70-200mm IS L

i have enough money now to spend 3-4000 $ on two new lenses... what i currently think after is either

canon 24-70 L I and canon 16-35L, as both have 2.8 and i need it for low light and i want to have a better lens than my tamron.

or 24-70 together with either 35 1.4 or 50 1.4 as my 50 1.8 gives me a lot of trouble lately...

i have not really had the chance to test the lenses except the canon 24-70 and i really liked it towards my tamron, but with the others i would love to have some advice from you guys!

as i said above, i mainly do concerts/events and otherwise portraits

thanks for any advice/feedback in advance!
