Johnny Depp waves as he arrives at Sage Gateshead for Jeff Beck gig
Johnny Depp has been spotted looking cheerful as he arrived at Sage Gateshead on Thursday, where he is set to join Jeff Beck onstage once more tonight.
The 58-year-old actor, who on Wednesday won his multimillion-dollar US defamation lawsuit against former wife Amber Heard, 36, had previously surprised audiences and fans when he joined Beck on stage in Sheffield and at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
He has now been confirmed to join his musician pal on the rest of Beck’s UK tour dates, which run up to June 7.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star arrived outside the Sage Gateshead music venue on Thursday afternoon, accompanied by two securiy guards, but waved enthusiastically to fans from behind them.
Wearing a checked jacket, spotty shirt and purple-lensed sunglasses, the actor and musician also carried a briefcase.
Beck was snapped leaving his hotel ahead of the gig, smiling and waving to fans in a khaki outfit and white T-shirt.
Depp headed to Newcastle yesterday as the news about his win came in, celebrating with Beck and Geordie local Sam Fender at a pub, and greeting fans.
