I want to write an app that uses setlist.fm.. Is it considered a commercial app if I put some paid advertising on it?

Depends. What's the app about? Is it a full-time project or is the ad revenue only used to cover hosting costs?

The app is a setlist seeker / playlist creator. The ad revenue is for hosting. What if the advertising is for personal profit? Is this permitted?

As long as you use the ad revenue to cover your hosting costs and you're following the API terms (linking etc.) you should be fine. Should your website or app gain traction and start becoming more than a hobby project then you might want to get in touch using one of the contact e-mail addresses to be safe.
