After wrapping up the closing arguments in his case against Amber Heard, Johnny Depp seems keen to get back to his life. The 58-year-old actor, who is rumoured to star in the sequel to Beetlejuice, was seen performing on stage alongside Jeff Beck.
The duo was seen performing “Isolation,” a 2020 remake of the John Lenon track that came out in 1970. Beck and Depp also performed covers of Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wings” and Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On”. This appearance has made way for news that Depp may even join Beck on his next two tour stops at the London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 30th and 31st.
Before starring in a number of Tim Burton movies and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp started his career as a musician. He’s also the founding member of a band called ‘Hollywood Vampires’ alongside Alice Cooper.
The video of Johnny Depp vibing on stage has divided the internet. While some pointed out the media hypocrisy against Amber Heard, fans of Johnny Depp seem ecstatic over the star making a public appearance.
With users taking to the internet to write messages like, “I didn’t realise Friday was the last day for Depp in Virginia. He is performing with Jeff Beck in the UK today. So, onward for him,” along with “He finally gets to breathe and do what he loves! Good for him.”
However, some did point out theFantastic Beasts star’s behaviour, saying, “So Johnny Depp is on tour with Jeff Beck. He played in Sheffield tonight, and will likely play the Royal Albert Hall in London tomorrow and Tuesday. That’s the domestic abuse victim waiting for his defamation case verdict. The one who’s been cancelled.”
Johnny Depp’s trial against his wife Amber Heard has been a highly publicised affair for the last few weeks. Recently, Depp’s ex spoke about how the actor allegedly threw a wine bottle at her. Both the parties gave their closing arguments over the weekend. The jury is expected to announce a judgement as soon as tomorrow.
