Anyone has an idea what is going on in these pictures?

Hello everybody,

I am a brand new owner of a e-m5 mark II. I really like that litthe thing .

I am also a Canon user for concert photography. Tonight, I decided I would take my Olympus for a spin for concert shooting. I don't have any good lens right now. I use 2 vintage minoltas with an adapter, and I have the 40-150 4.0-5.6. While it is a very decent lens, it is not fast enought for concert shooting, but I thought I'd try it anyway.

I was impressed with the results. I was especially looking forward to see the low-light shots. Not much of a problem there.

However, I encountered very strage artifacts in many photos, such as those:

These were taken on low-speed, silent mode, with my minolta 50mm 1.7.

So was this one, a few minutes before, as you can see, this one is perfect.

Notice the blue bars have different width on each photo. Those bars, not always blue, appear on my pictures I took, but not all. Is that the result of a spotlight hitting straight on the sensor? I also thought it could be the refresh rate of the LED lighting, but really, I have no idea.

I really like the e-m5 mark ii as a concert camera. I have already ordered a 25mm and a 45mm lens, I can't wait to try them, but these artifacts are a major problem.

I hope someone can tell me what is going on here...
