The Best P&S Camera

I'm looking to buy a P&S with built in zoom at least 10x. I want one that takes the BEST photos mainly.
We are attending a concert in late Nov. (Joe Bonamassa) that will not allow Professional Cameras into the venue, So that leaves out anything that dosen't fit in your pocket.
I would like to keep the price under $300.oo and not buy a Sony product.

Thanks Everyone

These days, the best P&S don't have 10x zooms. They also don't cost under $300.

So, what you are looking for seems to be the best P&S with 10x zoom under $300, not the best P&S as your title implies.

I should have said the best available for around $300.oo... But the more I looked around and read reviews the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS seem to be the best for the price.
So Thanks

The Nikon Coolpix S9100 has better low light capabilities and more zoom about the same price
