55-200 mm lens for Nikon D40

Can anyone tell me how far a 55-200 mm VR lens will zoom in? I am looking to buy a lens today for a Rascal Flatts concert and I will be sitting on the lawn about a football fields length away. Will this lens do? Also will be taking pics of my boys playing football.

Hmmm. I used to have that lens--I don't think it'll zoom 100 yards, but probably 35-50. But with a large sensor (10 MP and up), you can zoom and then crop the picture later for printing. Good luck!
