Camera recommendation for a big concert - help please

I need some advice:

I'm a Canon guy and currently own a 5D mk3, G1X mk1, and Fuji x100s, but because of rules and size will not be taking any of them.

This is a big concert for me as I have been trying to see them for the past 40 years and never have been able to until now, so this is kind of important for me.

I'm looking for a small pocketable camera with the best IQ possible, zoom (most likely, I will be within 75 m from the stage).

After reading DPR's "High-end pocketable compacts 2013 roundup", and doing some research, this is what I've been looking at so far:

Canon PowerShot S120 (I like the idea of another Canon, it's small, but week battery)

Sony DSC-RX100 (expensive and is 100mm enough?)

Fujifilm XQ1

Nikon Coolpix P330

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS

Fujifilm F900EXR

Lumix DMC-TZ6

Can anyone make a recommedation or have any other ideas?

Thanks

PS. I have also posted this in the "documentary and street photography" and Canon forums
