Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus to get 'Disco Demolition' treatment

Wednesday July 16th, 2014

New York Yankees single-A affiliate, the Charleston RiverDogs have announced a "Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It" promotion, in which they will recreate the Chicago White Sox ill-fated Disco Demolition promotion with Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus albums.

The RiverDogs have cleverly scheduled the demolition for after the game, avoiding the mid-game riot that followed the original version and caused Chicago to forfeit their game 35 years ago.

The July 19th promotion will also feature a "bobble-leg" doll of former White Sox owner Bill Veeck, who was famed throughout the league for his love of novelty promotions like Disco Demolition night.
