An emotional Echo Arena in Liverpool paid tribute to Eric Bristow, who died aged 60 after suffering a heart attack.
Arguably the sport's first superstar, Bristow, 60, was World Champion five times between 1980-1986 and also won five World Masters titles during an outstanding career.
Bristow was one of the founder players when the PDC [then World Darts Council] was formed in 1993 as the sport's leading stars broke away from the British Darts Organisation.
The 60-year-old was inducted into the PDC Hall of Fame in 2005 alongside great rival John Lowe, and since retiring from competition at the end of 2007 remained a popular figure on the exhibition circuit.
Bristow also worked as a TV pundit and spotter for Sky Sports, was awarded the MBE for his services to sport in 1989 and appeared on ITV's "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here" in 2012.
