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.

More Information about Lez Zeppelin Tickets
There are a few jarring moments when it will feel like the most powerful all-female band in rock history…”
-- Chuck Klosterman, SPIN
“Four women rockers who took on the music of Led Zeppelin are driving club audiences to a frenzy…the group is electrifying!”
“Strapping on the double-necked Gibson with attitude to burn, this all-girl quartet pays tribute to its swaggering namesake Led Zeppelin, ripping through the catalog with blazing accuracy.”
-- The New York Times
“They are the best new band I’ve seen all year, no question.”
“There’s something beautiful and deeply subversive in taking one of the most masculine, straight, heavy groups of all time and turning them into girls. Chuck in the “Lez” reference and we’re talking about a revolution.”
-- The Times of London
“Their name may sound like a joke, but Lez Zeppelin takes its tribute-band duties seriously. These ladies channel the sonic bombast of Led Zeppelin and gleefully invert the band's original sexual essence.”
-- The New Yorker
“Best Tribute Band in the World: Lez Zeppelin. While 2007 saw an unprecedented number of dreary bands reforming, the most talked about reunion was that of Led Zeppelin. Those who didn't fancy entering a bleedin' lottery to get their gig tickets, however, embraced the parallel universe genius of Lez Zeppelin, the sass-stacked all woman band who toured the world, slayed it, and recorded an album with Led Zep's producer Eddie Kramer. We know who John Bonham would have been rooting for.
--The Guardian, London
"There are Led Zeppelin tribute bands. And there is Lez Zeppelin — a quartet of female musicians who rock louder and harder than their male counterparts."
-- Lehigh Valley News
“In the 60s and 70s first the English bands, then the American bands started to interpret American blues. Some was okay but some, the Stones, Zeppelin, Aerosmith, ZZ Top to name a few, took it to a level that became a genre of its own. Today it is called classic rock because it will always be remembered as the next evolution in rock music. It is only natural that young musicians would want to reproduce this music live just the way musicians do the same with Mozart and Beethoven. What Lez Zeppelin has done is just that, taken their talent and wrapped it around one of the most classic of the classics, Led Zeppelin I. I have never heard it done better. Their attention to sounds in the studio, energy, and playing has put them as one of the first to capture the overall vibe of the original. But they also subtly put their stamp on it as well, following the tradition of other classic artists. This album is great to listen to. They don’t miss a beat.“
-- Joe Perry, Aerosmith
“After a single listen to their music, it's obvious Lez Zeppelin has a tremendous amount of love and respect for Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's Led Zeppelin. Lez Zeppelin are great musicians. And then some.”
“Their coolly delivered parts displayed musicianship beyond practiced…
a remarkable performance.”
-- The Boston Globe
