The best advice I can give on calming the nerves:

1. Resign yourself to the fact that something bad and unexpected will happen on stage. It almost always does. It's how you react to those on-stage screw ups that will ease your nerves.

2. When something bad does happen on stage (and it will) act as though it's no big deal. Show no emotion and calmly keep plugging away as if nothing happened.

3. The older you get and the more you perform, the less nervous you will be.

4. Prepare for every gig by showing up very early and bringing spare parts, heads, etc.
