Band Blackjack Billy brings its wild twist on southern country as part of the Bands on the Run tour coming to Kal Tire Place Dec. 13.

Kal Tire Place hosts country-rock concert

Blackjack Billy and Doc Walker and the Road Hammers perform in Vernon Dec. 13

It’ll be a night of hootin’, hollerin’ country-rock when Vernon’s Kal Tire Place plays host to the Bands on the Run concert Dec. 13.

The concert, featuring U.S. act Blackjack Billy, along with Canadian bands Doc Walker and The Road Hammers, promises to be a high-energy event that will set a new standard for Vernon arena concerts, said local promoter David Hesketh.

The  event is being billed as a tailgate party that is reminiscent of ‘70s-style concerts with affordable ticket prices, general seating and an arena-bowl configuration that limits available tickets while creating a much more intimate concert experience for the fans and the performers, said Hesketh.

“As a promoter, I am excited about being a part of this concert event,” he said.

“We have fine-tuned it into a great tailgate country party with the stage near centre ice and standing-only on the floor. Fans of these bands will be able to see them clearly from anywhere in the arena. It is going to be a great evening.”

Advance ticket prices for the licensed, all-ages show are $42.50 or $50 on the day of the concert.

“General admission allows patrons to choose their own arena seats, or stand on the floor level or in the concourse,” said Hesketh.

Tickets for the Bands on the Run concert at Kal Tire Place are now available and can be purchased at or by calling 250-549-7469.
