You Won’t Believe Gerwyn Price’s New Walk On Song That Debuted During Night 10 Of The DPL

You Won’t Believe Gerwyn Price’s New Walk On Song That Debuted During Night 10 Of The DPL

Gerwyn Price impressed with his win against Peter Wright during Night 10 of the Darts Premier League, but it wasn’t his play that first got the attention of fans.

Before the match, Price surprised fans with a new walk-on song.

Of course, the new song is none other than Katy Perry’s “Roar,” the 2013 hit that reached number one in both the United Kingdom and United States single charts. As usual, he was greeted with a mix of cheers and boos.

The new song replaces, at least temporarily, “Ice Ice Baby,” which had been a staple of The Iceman’s introductions for some time.

Check out a full version of “Roar” below:

Regardless of what you think of the song, the new song must have worked.

Gewryn Price won his first match in four weeks during Night 10 of the Darts Premier League, defeating Peter Wright during his opening Quarter Final match. He hit a 97 average with a high checkout of 157.

Reaction To Gerwyn Price’s New Walk On Song

Darts fans were quick to head to Twitter for their opinions of Gerwyn Price’s new walk on song with some praising it for being better than “Ice Ice Baby” while others would have preferred that he kept the old tune.

Price not only gave us a new song, but also some new look darts:

Price was not only introduced to a new song, but also tested out some new prototype darts during his match with Peter Wright:

Michael Van Gerwen On Night 10 Of The Darts Premier League

It was vintage Michael van Gerwen in last Thursday in Leeds as he moved clear of Jonny Clayton at the top of the Darts Premier League table.

MVG took on winless wonder James Wade in a final that only lasted a matter of minutes and may as well have been a whitewash.

True, he got a bye in the first round due to Gary Anderson’s covid enforced withdrawal, but on this form that would have been a formality anyway.

The Dutchman moved three points clear at the top of the table by becoming the first player to win a third-night title adding to his wins in Exeter and Brighton last month.

This is an event the former world number one has won on five occasions and in this form, he looks like another could be on the way.

Pete’s Tips For Night 10

  • Back Peter Wright or Gerwyn Price to throw a 180 in the first leg of the night’s opener for 11/10 at bet365.
  • Also from the night’s glamour tie between the world’s top two darters, why not back a 170 big fish finish from either player at 11/1, also at bet365.
  • We should get plenty of 180s in the final match of the night, no one has pinned more than Joe Cullen after all, and with Bully Boy being pretty tasty on the tipple 20s too, the 5/6 given at bet365 for there to be more 6.5 in the match looks likely to pay off.

Unfortunately, we did not predict Gerwyn Price’s new walk-on song.

Back To His Best

Someone as good as Michael van Gerwen was never going to be off the boil for very long and it feels like something big is stirring in the Green Machine right now.

Gary Anderson’s withdrawal meant that the world number three benefitted from going straight through to the semi-finals where defeated world champion Peter Wright 6-3 before laying on a whirlwind annihilation of James Wade in the final, winning 6-1 and posting a 103.87 average.

Racing into a three-leg lead following finishes of 76, 68 and a 14-darter, Mighty Mike closed out the match following 14 dart finish reply from Wade, with another 13-darter and another two legs of 15 and 11 darts to close out his third seasonal victory.

This week, play moves to Manchester and the AO Arena.

Peter Wright v Gerwyn Price

The world number one takes on the world number two to get things underway this Thursday and it’s hard to see anything other than a win for Snakebite. 

Apart from one sensational night in Belfast where The Iceman was unplayable, Price really hasn’t been at the races in this year’s Darts Premier League.

He was unlucky to miss night five in Brighton with covid but hasn’t made a final since.

His broken hand is clearly bothering him, and a fortnight ago he looked like he was sporting a black eye.

On Saturday, he was shot down by world number 73 Gordon Mathers 6-5 in a Player Championship match so something is clearly not right with The Iceman.

It’s strange to think that neither of these two have picked up multiple night wins, but it’s Wright that looks the more likely.

Peter has 44 180s this year to a lowly 23 from Gerwyn Price, a mark lower than anyone else in the competition.

You get the impression that Price needs an early break of throw or time will run out on the short format race to six legs.

Although there is every chance that The Iceman is over the worst and could come roaring back in to form, I’m sticking with Snakebite to progress.

Gary Anderson v James Wade

Game two of night 10 pits Gary Anderson against two-time losing night finalist James Wade. 

Wade is one of only two players left in the event still to win a night but after reaching – and losing – the last two finals, he is getting closer.

The Machine averaged 93.59 in last week’s final but still couldn’t live with MVG, but something similar out of the blocks this week could be more than enough to see off bottom-placed Anderson.

The Flying Scotsman has only got seven points on the board so far this season, but as we have seen elsewhere with Joe Cullen, one night win can really change everything.

He just doesn’t look like getting it anytime soon and I would expect a Wright versus Wade semi-final.

Michael van Gerwen v Jonny Clayton

The top two collide in match three.

Take nothing away from Jonny Clayton, he has been one of the more consistently impressive performers in this year’s Darts Premier League, but if last week was anything to go by, he is running into Michael van Gerwen at the exact wrong time.

Mighty Mike was back to looking like his old self in Leeds and, throwing first, has the darts to close the Ferret out.

After 16 rounds so far, MVG has the highest tournament average and has posted 13 ton plus checkouts, one ahead of James Wade.

The Green Machine even put in a 103.87 performance in the final last week and, with that being the last I saw him, is enough for him to get my backing this week in Manchester.

Joe Cullen v Michael Smith

The final match of the evening is Joe Cullen and Michael Smith.

With no draws allowed in the Premier League of Darts someone has to win this one and I think that will be Michael Smith.

In a rematch of the UK Open final, a match won by Joe Cullen by the way, Smith is desperate for a night title although he is likely to run into MVG in the next round.

No one has popped in more 180’s in this year’s tourney than Joe Cullen’s 47 but The Rockstar was well beaten by Jonny Clayton last week.

Not that Bully Boy fared much better in his first round match but, Rotterdam aside, Cullen hasn’t quite looked right for a little while and with Smith sporting the top doubles and checkout percentage across the whole league, the St Helens chucker gets the nod.

Jonny Clayton Night 9 Darts Premier League

Jonny Clayton moved level with Michael van Gerwen at the top of the Darts Premier League after winning his second-night title last week in Birmingham.

The Ferret, who also won on night two in Liverpool, opened up the evening with a 6-1 thrashing of Michael Smith in which he averaged 99.

He elevated his performance even further in his next match where he took out Peter Wright 6-4, raising his average to 103.68 in a match where Snakebite fired in six 180s and averaged 107.71.

There was more to come from the Welshman, however, as he put in a 111.16 average in the night’s final, a match he won 6-1 against James Wade, who despite reaching two finals, remains one of two players still to win an evening alongside Michael Smith.

The Machine’s performance in the second city does, however, lift him off the bottom of the table and up into fifth place ahead of Gerwyn Price.

After losing 6-5 to Wright in the quarter-finals, Nottingham winner Gary Anderson now occupies bottom spot at the halfway stage ahead of June’s play offs.

The action now moves to the First Direct Arena in Leeds for Night 9. Let’s take a look at the matches on Thursday along with some Darts Premier Night 9 betting picks.

Michael Smith v Peter Wright

The ninth night of this year’s Premier League of Darts gets underway in a match that sees Michael Smith take on Peter Wright.

Bully Boy is still to win a night and fell at the first last week in Birmingham.

The world number one on the other hand was an unfortunate loser seven days ago.

At times, Snakebite put in a sensational shift in his semi-final defeat to Jonny Clayton and on a different day he would have won that game.

The Scotsman also went well over the weekend in the Pro Tour events. 

He didn’t register a win but did reach a final with some put in some pretty decent performances over all in the face of some good quality averages going against him.

Only Joe Cullen has hit more 180s (45) than Peter Wright’s 44. These two shared 41 between them in the Darts World Championship final in January so we can expect a high scoring encounter this week in Leeds.

We would expect Wright to take it on the doubles, however.

Gary Anderson v Michael van Gerwen

Should Snakebite make it through, he will face the winner of a tie between Gary Anderson and Michael van Gerwen.

These two met on the opening night in Cardiff in a match The Flying Scotsman came out on top.

Since then, however, The Green Machine has roared back into form, winning two nights to Anderson’s one to find himself top of the table on leg difference.

Both of these guys have been around the block, won it all and know each other’s game inside out, but based on what we saw from both of them last week, it’s the Dutchman that is favoured even if he wasn’t at his best last Thursday.

Joe Cullen v Jonny Clayton

The third match of the evening pits Joe Cullen up against last week’s champion Jonny Clayton.

The Ferret was in superb form a week ago, improving in each of his three games to go second in the table.

The Rockstar looked good in round one where he took out a lacklustre Gerwyn Price, but Clayton looked even better and was simply unplayable at times.

The only question remains that there are the occasional spells where he comes off the boil a little bit.

That being said, Clayton has won both of their meetings so far in the Premier League without playing at his best, and another win for The Ferret looks to be on the cards.

James Wade v Gerwyn Price

The final match of the night is between last week’s losing finalist James Wade and the world’s number two Gerwyn Price.

Normally, we would put our faith in The Iceman here, but he is not with it right now.

His broken hand is clearly hampering him and last week he looked like he was sporting a black eye too, possibly as a result of his sparring practice for his upcoming boxing match for charity.

The Welshman struggled over the weekend at the Pro Tour too.

In a race to six, throwing first is such an advantage and that, plus the fact that Price seems to be focused elsewhere right now, means we are giving the nod to The Machine in the night’s closing quarter-final. 

From there, we’re backing the two stand out players from last week to proceed to the last match of the night. 

In a Jonny Clayton v Peter Wright final, things really could go either way, but its high time Snakebite won another night and become a two time winner and he can be backed at 9/2 with bet365 to do exactly that.
