When do you need a flash

My nikon speed light sb-800 for some reason will not power up. I recently bought a nikon  d-850 and the camera iso is so good i wonder when you need external flash.

At granddaughters concert lasts night, took a bunch of pics with 70-200 2.8f latest version. I dont think i used more then 2400 iso but even took a few with iso 6400 and the noise was acceptable to me on my computer screen.

Indoor sporting events cant use flash. Outdoor events dont need flash. With the iso of these cameras going 6400 and much more, when do you even need external flash. Maybe weddings etc. but many such events like graduations and that sort of thing, not allowed to use flash anyway. When does one add flash. Thanks, i know another beginners type question and that is what i am despite my equipment.
