If you're in the concert venue's sweet spot with your state-of-the-art 24-bit stealth recorder, keep the 24-bit original, make it reasonably easily available, and provide the obligatory 16-bit tinny mini for the unwashed masses. As for those who continue to upsample 16-bit to 24-bit, please stop.
If there were a Golden Rule of archival integrity, it would be, "Step on the mass distributed product, but keep yours pure." Or, as the late, great Ray Charles put it, far more tersely and poetically, "I want the masters."
