Best point and shoot for concerts? (audio)

Hi, I need a point and shoot camera in which the sound won't get blown out by the drums. It has to have a limiter / decibel filter or manual audio controls, which I don't think any do.  I tend to sit quite close at concerts within the first 10 rows usually and my sound is ALWAYS getting blown out, even at more mellow concerts with the drums. And when I try to record a rock  or metal concert forget about it, you can't make anything out practically. I've used mostly my Canon G7x and it does not cut it at all. I was thinking of buying the RX100V but I'm worried about the same problem the G7x has, don't know if it filters out loud drums.

I did a search on this forum and did not find an answer that mentioned any cameras with such a filter for the drums. I know most flagship cellphones do this but I find it hard to believe my best option is a phone??

Thanks
Jim
