Not a big fan of Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus? Then Charleston, S.C., is where you need to be.
In what’s being dubbed “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It,” the music and merchandise of Bieber and Cyrus will be destroyed in an on-field explosion following a minor-league baseball game between the the Charleston RiverDogs and Augusta GreenJackets on Saturday (July 19).
“Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It” is a continuation of a Chicago White Sox promotion in 1979, where thousands of disco records were demolished at Comiskey Park in an on-field explosion during a doubleheader between the White Sox and Detroit Tigers.
Here’s a taste of what spectators could expect at tonight’s game. Watch the first “Disco Demolition” below.
"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," RiverDogs general manager Dave Echols said in statement.
"'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."
Fans who bring Bieber and Cyrus music and merch to the game will receive a $1 ticket.
