No and yes.

A head is basically just a combination of a preamp and a poweramp, all in one nice little neat package.
You do need both of those things for "shows".......well, unless the place doesn't mind you directly inputting into their board, and then you would only need a preamp.

When you buy a head, you don't have the option of picking a certain preamp and a certain poweramp. They come together with no options really (except for that new Randall series with interchangable pre's).

Usually separate pre-amps also have WAY more features and control, like Midi channel switching and they allow for TONS of presets.
