Charlie Simpson - Charlie Simpson Plays Coldest Concert In History

British singer Charlie Simpson has rocked into the world record books by performing the coldest gig of all time in Siberia.

The Fightstar frontman braved the minus 30 degrees Celsius temperatures in Oymyakon on Sunday (25Nov12) to play a 15-minute set in order to break the Guinness world record.

Simpson was warned by doctors that exposing his skin to such low temperatures could be damaging - but he staved off the cold by putting hand warmers into his clothes.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "This has been the trip of a lifetime. It was unbearably cold, and playing guitar with gloves on wasn't an option. We had to pack hand-warmers into my sleeves to stop frostbite."
