12-60mm is ok if you can get really close.

There are a few things to consider, but usually it is a question of learning.

IBIS usually is no help whatsoever if your objects move.

really shoot indoor sport/stage, such as basketball, table tennis

Here you need very short shutter speeds, but usually the light there is not very low. TT players need good light, BB perhaps not quite as much. Set your shutter speed to the desired value (1/1000 or 1/2000) and ISO to AUTO. 12-60 is rather short however, I'd prefer the 2,8/40-150. Noise is not so much a problem in sports photos, I find.

, or concert,

and stage: again concerts and stage performances are well lit most of the time; so set shutter speed in S mode to a high enough value and expose for highlights (spotlights!).

Again, it is vital to get close. Best time for stage photography is the full rehearsal, where you can move around without getting in the way of the audience. Otherwise get as close as possible and use a longer tele zoom, again the 40-150 is invaluable.

Or noise is too much to have good images..

Get DxO for NR in post. This gives you about an extra stop compared with other editing software.
