“British rock star, Charlie Simpson, is to attempt the world’s coldest ever gig in this November. The Fightstar front man will be performing a one-off, solo set to residents of a tiny Siberian town which holds the record for the lowest temperature ever recorded in a populated area on earth – minus 72˚ centigrade. If successful, Charlie’s icy endeavours will earn him an official place in the Guinness World RecordsTM annals.
“With temperatures hovering around minus 40˚C, Charlie and his support team will battle sub-arctic climates so cold that mobile phones cannot function, boiling water turns to snow in mid air and fish caught from local rivers freeze instantly.”
Has Charlie Simpson gone absolutely mad? Records say that he will be performing to a crowd of no more than 500 people, so is there much point of going through all of this? There is a huge risk that Charlie could catch frostbite in his fingers as he has stated that “It’s not really an option to play my guitar wearing gloves, so I just hope my fingers don’t freeze.”
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Charlie get’s a crazy but well deserved place in the Guinness World RecordsTM!
