The Charleston RiverDogs have drawn inspiration from the ‘Disco Demolition Night’ of 1979
Minor league baseball team the Charleston RiverDogs are to host a public destruction of Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus music and memorabilia.
The event, as reported by the Los Angeles Times, will be held this Saturday directly after the North Carolina-based team have played the Augusta GreenJackets. Fans that bring Bieber and Cyrus items will be allowed entry to the game for $1.
Dubbed “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It”, organisers have taken inspiration from the original “Disco Demolition Night” held by the Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park in 1979. Disco records brought by attendees were destroyed that evening following the White Sox’s game with the Detroit Tigers. However, thousands stormed the field following the explosion and such was the damage caused that the White Sox were forced to forfeit Game 2 of the doubleheader, which was due to be held the following night.
“Like so many, we have taken special exception to Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus’s music along with his numerous run-ins with the law and her controversial performances,” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols.
“‘Disco Demolition 2’ is dedicated to the eradication of their dread musical disease, like the original Disco Demolition attempted to do. We are going to take Bieber and Cyrus’s merchandise and memorabilia, put it in a giant box, and blow it to smithereens. It is all in good fun, and we guarantee there won’t be a forfeit of a game.”
Bieber recently confessed that he nearly quit music following false paternity claims.
