The minor league Charleston RiverDogs game is going to end with a bang Saturday. The Yankees' single-A team is blowing up Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus music and paraphernalia to honor the 35th anniversary of baseball’s infamous Disco Demolition Night.
The Chicago White Sox created the original Disco Demolition Night to fill seats during their tanking 1979 season. Disco records were blown up in Comiskey Park between games of a scheduled twi-night doubleheader. But the damage to the field forced Chicago to forfeit the second game.
Check out the promo the RiverDogs' game Saturday in South Carolina against the Augusta Green Jackets (Giants):
Beyond the explosives, the RiverDogs also plan to ban all Bieber and Cyrus music from being played in their stadium. The cause for the event is explained in the press release:
That's because the team learned from history and has planned for the destruction to take place after the game.
Fans that bring Bieber or Cyrus paraphernalia to contribute to the demolition can buy tickets for $1.
