'Disco Demolition 2' will demolish Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus recordings

Remember Disco Demolition held at a White Sox game on July 12, 1979? There is going to be another attempt at the stunt on Saturday as the Yankees’ Class A affiliate hosts “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It.” This time, 35 years after the original Disco Demolition, recordings and memorabilia of pop song sensations Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus will be destroyed in the demolition held in Charleston, South Carolina instead of disco records and memorabilia, according to a New York Post report on Wednesday.

Mike Veeck, who is the co-owner of the Charleston RiverDogs and the son of legendary baseball owner and promotions extraordinaire Bill Veeck, is attempting to reinvent what is possibly his father’s most infamous promotion, Disco Demolition. According to the Chicago Tribune, Disco Demolition headed south from the original idea when fans got out of control at Comiskey Park on Chicago’s South Side decades ago. When the Disco Demolition was taking place with Chicago radio personalities Steve Dahl and Garry Meier between two games of a double-header, the fans became so destructive and unruly that the second game had to be forfeit by the White Sox.

There is no chance of a forfeit taking place at “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It.” There will be no second baseball game that evening. Therefore, if the fans become rowdy again and cause the playing field to be unusable, it will be no problem – for that night, anyway. The event will conclude the night’s activities at the ballpark rather than be sandwiched in between two games.

The deal for “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It” is that fans who bring Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus merchandise will get through the gate for a dollar. And again, it is after the one game of the evening that the demolition of the Bieber and Cyrus materials will take place. Bieber was chosen because of his illegal antics in the recent past, and Cyrus was chosen because of her controversial headline-grabbing performances.
