Bully is back and is going on a tour of UK theatres this Autumn with some of the greatest ever darts players.
A theatre tour with a difference, featuring 3 former World Champions Bob Anderson, John Lowe and Eric Bristow playing darts against each other together with the game “Bullseye” where there is a chance for any audience member to go home with the contents of Bully’s prize board! For the final two dates at The Spa, Bridlington and the legendary Lakeside stage, 3 times World Champion Martin “Wolfie” Adams will be replacing Eric.
And the show comes to The Dome on October 28!
As with the original Bullseye gameshow on ITV and Challenge, the dartboards used will be from the World’s leading manufacturer, Winmau. The contestants will also have the opportunity to win some fantastic Winmau darts equipment.
Darts has had a phenomenal rise in popularity in the past few years and now fans have a chance to see 3 legends of the sport go head-to-head with the added bonus of the historic 80’s gameshow recreated on stage.
Bullseye was first made for the ITV Network in 1981 and ran from 1982 until 1995. The show was watched by around 17 million viewers in its primetime Sunday slot and remains part of many people’s childhood history. Repeats of Bullseye are currently aired on the Challenge Channel, part of the Sky platform.
John Lowe won the World Darts Championship title in three different decades - 1979, 1987 and 1993. He achieved the ultimate feat in darts in 1984 when he managed a 9 dart finish, the sport’s perfect game! This was the first time this had ever been accomplished by any darts player while being televised.
As well as his three World titles, John also won two Winmau World Masters championships, two British Open titles, two British Matchplay championships, two World Cup Singles and three European Cup Singles titles. He played for England over 100 times and was captain for seven years, during which time his team were unbeaten.
Eric Bristow won his first World Darts Championship in 1980 and so began a decade’s worth of domination, in which he would retain his title in 1981 and win it again in 1984, 1985 and 1986.
Bristow emerged as the most successful and consistent darts player of the 1980s, reigning as World number one from 1980 until 1987. As well as his World Championship exploits, Bristow also lifted the prestigious Winmau World Masters and World Matchplay titles no fewer than five times. He was a winner of the World Cup Singles on four occasions together with countless other major tournaments including the British Open and Swedish Open three times each and the North American Open on four occasions. Eric, known as the “Crafty Cockney”, was awarded the MBE for his services to sport in 1989.
Bob Anderson was world number one for over three years in the late 1980s. Nicknamed The Limestone Cowboy, he threw his first darts maximum (180) at the age of just five. He was training for the 1968 Olympics, but tragically broke his arm before the team left for Mexico, an injury which brought an end to his javelin-throwing career. Bob has had a long and successful darts career winning the World Championship in 1988 and the Winmau World Masters in 1986, 1987 and 1988 - the first man to win the Masters in three successive years
Martin Adams is the BDO World number one, and three-time, and reigning BDO World Champion. He has been captain of England since 1993/94 - the longest any individual player has held that role. Martin is a darts legend and emulated Bob Anderson’s amazing feat of winning the Winmau World Masters in 3 successive years with his victory in 2010. He has won many BDO Open events and twice won the WDF singles. He is known worldwide as “Wolfie”.
The show takes place on October 28 at 7pm. Tickets are available on 01302 370707 priced at £15.
