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.

Thanks for the compliment and the tips !
