As promised, minor league baseball team the Charleston RiverDogs re-created the Disco Demolition of 1979 by blowing up a boombox full of music and merchandise by Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus following Saturday’s game between the RiverDogs and the Augusta GreenJackets in Charleston, S.C.
Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It was a continuation of a Chicago White Sox promotion from 35 years ago, where thousands of disco records were demolished at Comiskey Park in an on-field explosion during a double-header between the White Sox and the Detroit Tigers.
The original Disco Demolition was conceived by Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck and his son, Mike, who now serves as president of the RiverDogs.
“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’s and Cyrus’ 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,” RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols said in statement prior to Saturday’s game.
