Simpson to play coldest ever gig
Jeagermeister take Charlie Simpson to Siberia
Charlie Simpson, a member of both Busted and Fighstar, is being taken to Siberia by Jaegermeister to play in -40˚C.
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.
Charlie has teamed up with Jägermeister, best served as an ice cold shot, for the “Jägermeister Ice Cold Gig.” The trip will see him leave behind the luxuries of a famous rocker and travel to Oymyakon, the coldest permanently inhabited spot on the planet. The Russian town boasts a population of 472, no running water or electricity and is so remote that it takes up to four days to reach from the United Kingdom, including a two day drive from the nearest city, Yakutsk.
