Tel Aviv's Hangar 11 played host Monday night to perhaps the first concert in history where it wasn't impolite to fall asleep. Click for upcoming events calendar! Invited guests stationed themselves in 144 beds spread across the performance space for the classical music show, a "sleep concert" hosted by bed manufacturer Hollandia. Music for the one-night only concert was provided by the Ra'anana Symphonette, with celebrity guests in attendance including songwriter Zvika Pick, soccer star Shimon Gershon and models Mali Levy, Agam Rodberg and Shiraz Tal. The Symphonette took three breaks during the evening performance, with waiters serving snacks to concert-goers in bed as they waited for the music to resume.
