Charlie Simpson, the lead singer in Fightstar, has earned a place in the record books by playing a concert in one of the coldest populated places on Earth.

He braved temperatures of -30 degrees to entertain a small crowd gathered in snowy Oymyakon, Siberia, where Charlie and his team of three decided to carry out the Jagermeister-sponsored stunt - a fifteen-minute set of songs from his debut solo album.

It had taken the musician four days to reach Oymyakon, reportedly the coldest inhabited place on the planet.

Simpson told Complete Music Update: "This has been a trip of a lifetime and a gig unlike anything I thought I'd ever experience in my career. The town has no TV or radio, so they've had little to no contact with rock music before. This was definitely a world first in many respects!"
