Yowza, that looks freezing! Ex-Busted’s lead vocalist Charlie Simpson made history when he broke the world record of the coldest concert ever performed. Literally. Simpson played a 15-minute set in -22 degrees in a far-flung village in Siberia often termed the ‘Pole of the Cold’. The 27-year-old rockstar had to make a four-day pilgrimage just to get there, sleeping in local residents’ homes all the way through.
