Heres something I use, not sure if has been mentioned here before. A couple nights before you perform, turn off the lights and imagine you or on stage. If you have a good imagination this will be easy. Try to make yourself nervous, because then it will feel more realistic. Then, play through the song. Then when, you are really on stage, just try to visualize yourself playing in your room. I know this might not work for everyone. But try it out.

Hey AS, another thing i recommend is:
Everytime you practice, concentrate at 100% on playing things prefect, and picture the audience in front of you. When you step out on stage youll know you can get 100% right if you focus, and you will, therefore just ignoring the people.

Concentrating on doing things %100 perfect would drive me insane. I have to concentrate more on recovering when I mess up.
