Vernon Vipers den taken over by 1,300 country fans to see Blackjack Billy, Doc Walker and the Road Hammers

An epic country tour which happened to stop in Vernon Saturday didn’t disappoint.

The Bands on the Run tour brought Blackjack Billy, Doc Walker and the Road Hammers to Kal Tire Place, where 1,300 fans turned out to catch the bands at the Vernon arena.

Songs such as Blackjack Billy’s Booze Cruise to Doc Walker’s Shake It Like It’s Saturday Night and the Road Hammers’ Mud had fans kicking up their boots on the dance floor. Then the trio rounded up on stage for Run

The tour, which only made 19 stops across Canada, features the three bands and their three new albums: Wheels (Road Hammers), Rebel Child (Blackjack Billy) and The 8th (Doc Walker).

Vernon fans could also be spotted in some videos as the bands had video cameras circling the stage/crowd.
