1. The concert is over.
2. The concert is finished.
3. The concert ended.
4. The concert finished.
[Are they the same in meaning? Can we use all the sentences? Which ones are unacceptable? Do you have some more similar expressions?]

All are acceptable. I think number four would be less likely to be used, but is okay. When I read it, I want to know how it finished. "The concert finished with Copeland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man'." :)
==================
1. The concert is over.
2. The concert is finished.
3. The concert ended.
4. The concert finished.
5. The concert ends.
6. The concert finishes.

[Does #1 mean #3 or 4? Or does #1 mean #5 or 6? What's the difference?]

  1. Writeacher

    #s 1 and 2 are fine.
    In addition to #2, you could use “has finished.”

    I would not use #s 3 - 6 unless more details were added, such as some reference to time. Example: The concert ended at 10 p.m. last night.
