We'd be lying if we said we weren't concerned
Charlie Simpson, little daredevil that he is, has decided he fancies having a go at playing the COLDEST EVER GIG and landing himself in the Guinness Book of World Records.
We're all up for a record and whatever but this sounds like it might actually be able to kill him, or at least sever off a few limbs. Being reasonable to above-avergae Charlie fans at Sugarscape, we're not entirely on board with the idea of Chaz playing in temperatures of up to –71*C.
"It’s not really an option to play my guitar wearing gloves, so I just hope my fingers don’t freeze," said Charlie.
"The gig is by far one of the biggest challenges of my career, but I’m really excited to get out there and see a part of our planet that very few people will ever get to visit."
Charlie will be playing in the Russian town of Oymyakon in Siberia, which has no water or electricity – so there's hardly a chance of a warming cuppa or a hot water bottle to prevent his beloved fingers snapping off.
Bet his girlfriend's on EDGE.
