Luke Littler responds after calls to change his darts walk-on song

Luke Littler responds after calls to change his darts walk-on song

Luke Littler was asked about potential plans to change his entrance song after comments online.

Luke Littler has responded after calls for him to change his darts walk-on music.

The 17-year-old wonderkid has grown into a household name after a stunning run to the PDC world darts final in his debut earlier this year.

Littler is now involved in the Premier League roadshow as well as the European Tour, while he won his first professional tournament when he claimed the Bahrain Masters.

The Nuke is a huge star and every time he makes his way to the oche, he comes out to Pitbull and Lunchmoney Lewis' hit 'Greenlight'.

Some fans have branded it the "worst entrance in darts history" but for Littler, the track has special value for him.

The song, streamed over 27 million streams on Spotify, was the theme for Wrestlemania 33 and Littler was in attendance for WWE's show of shows in Orlando.

Speaking on JackMaate's Happy Hour Podcast, Littler said: “[I] went to Wrestlemania 33 seven years ago now and it was in Florida, Orlando, it was my first time being there and it was just a good song.

“I was singing my head off as a 10-year-old and whenever if I did make it, I was still playing football at the time, that’s going to be my walk-on.”

Littler was then asked if he has any plans of using a different song and commented: “For the time being (I will keep it). I haven’t even thought about (using other songs).”

The youngster did have an issue with his entrance on Thursday, during the Premier League week nine in Belfast.

Ahead of his semi-final with Michael van Gerwen, while his music was playing and Littler was high-fiving fans, his arm was grabbed a member of the crowd.

Sky Sports cameras cut away but security intervened and Littler was a little shaken up.

“I don’t know who he was, he pulled my arm. It hurt a little bit," he said, as per The Sun.

“That’s why, when I went on stage, I didn’t interact with my music. I heard everyone singing but I just needed to relax.

"As soon as (referee) Charlie said ‘Game On’, I had to relax myself. My hand is fine. It worked out well.”

Littler went on to win the night, beating Nathan Aspinall in the final to claim a £10,000 prize and put himself second in the eight-player table.
