The darts walk-on songs have always played a major role in darts. At first glance it sounds totally strange. Why do darts songs that promote volume before starting a concentration sport play such a big role?
Quite simply: darts is entertainment . Not just on stage, but when walking to the stage. The darts walk-on songs now even enjoy cult status with some of the players marching in.
They serve to celebrate the arrival of the players . It's not for nothing that after a while fans associate a specific player with a specific song. The importance of dart walk-on songs is also so high because players market themselves over time and the respective darts song becomes a player's trademark .
Another topic is of course the walk-on girls . For a long time, the players were accompanied to the stage by a so-called walk-on girl. This came to an abrupt end in 2018. The PDC cited the professionalization of darts as the official reason for the end of the walk-on girls - to a certain extent also equal rights for women in sport.
You no longer want to see the women just as escorts for the men, but also as equal athletes on stage .

Stunning Darts Walk On
We think the darts walk-on songs are extremely important for darts. They connect fans and players in a unique way. They are comparable to the anthem of a football club or the opening music for boxing .
John Henderson's walk on as a contender in the PDC Premier League was particularly moving. In his home country of Scotland, his walk on was accompanied by traditional bagpipes.
This created a very moving and significant moment . John Henderson himself had tears in his eyes at times. This walk on has to go down in the history books!
