Indoor concert, 80 feet from stage on balcony, Canon 80d. What lens?

I am attending a concert next week, and I have balcony seating, slightly above the stage, with a rail that I can rest the camera on for photos. I have a Canon EOS 80D. I have a CANON EFS 18-135 I will use for lobby shots, but am thinking I could rent something better when I am in town for the 3 days for the stage shots from the balcony seating. I also have the EFS 55-250 but am wondering if I should go bigger.

Can anyone suggest a lens that will be used mainly for pictures of the artists from a distance?

Would I be able to use the same lens if I crawled down and got right up against the stage? I can probably use the 18-135 for that.

Thanks.

Canon EOS 80D
