The Robin 2 in Bilston is an excellent live music venue with a capacity of 700, and draws appreciative crowds to see some unexpected big names, local bands and tribute acts. At the front of the club, Noddy's Bar - named after the Slade frontman - is an excellent place to meet for a drink before the gig. The Robin provides a refreshing alternative for those who like to listen to good live music at a reasonable price. The Robin 2 is unique in the fact that it is also a hotel. The Robin 2 hotel has been inundated with bookings since it's opening in May 2008. The 500,000 pounds hotel is aimed at giving concert-goers the chance to enjoy a drink and have a bed nearby for convenience. The old building next to the Mount Pleasant music venue was gutted and transformed into the new attraction as part of a 12 week renovation project. The hotel was built during celebrations to mark the 10th anniversary of the music venue. Each of the eight sound-proofed rooms are fitted out with en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee machines and digital televisions.

Fragile have performed classic Yes music throughout Europe since 1998 and, in a brand new collaboration, 2013 saw Claire Hamill joining as lead singer.
Claire has had a distinguished musical career spanning 4 decades and offers a great blessing to this project being a genuine link to Yes. With help from Alan White, in 1971 she was signed & launched on Island Records as one of Britain's first female singer-songwriters and compared by several commentators of the time to Joni Mitchell.
Claire has worked with Alan White, Steve Howe, Jon & Vangelis & Wishbone Ash and has performed internationally on tours with many well known artists including Jon Anderson, John Martyn, Procul Harem, Jethro Tull, The Kinks and Jackson Browne. Claire sang lead vocals on the 1980 Steve Howe track 'Look Over Your Shoulder' and her 1974 song 'You Take My Breath Away' was recorded by Eva Cassidy and used on a movie soundtrack, gaining huge international popularity.
This collaboration sees Fragile performing a great new show featuring classic Yes music as ever, along with a selection of Claire's own original work, including her original version of the beautiful 'You Take My Breath Away'.
News about FRAGILE working with YES members has appeared as top news items on the official YES website on many occasions and FRAGILE have been well and truly accepted into the extended YES family by YES members themselves, who have publicly endorsed the band on several occasions.
The band are now well known to YES fans all over Europe, having appeared on the Richard & Judy show with Rick Wakeman and visionary album cover artist Roger Dean and performed throughout the UK, Finland, Belgium, Holland & Switzerland, including tours with YES/ASIA guitar legend Steve Howe in 2005/6 and 7. The band has also performed to an audience of over 35,000 with YES and former John Lennon drummer Alan White and have performed at several official Roger Dean art exhibitions.
