Where is Johnny Depp performing in the UK with Jeff Beck?
Johnny Depp stunned fans when he rocked up to Sheffield while awaiting the verdict for his trial against Amber Heard, playing the guitar alongside his pal Jeff Beck.
While many expected Depp, 58, to immediately return to Virginia in the US for the verdict (which saw him win), he remained in the UK, joining Beck for his big London shows at the Royal Albert Hall.
It seems Depp is well and truly enjoying the UK, also heading to Newcastle as the news about his win came in, celebrating with Beck and Geordie local Sam Fender at a pub, and greeting fans.
So, where else is Beck performing and will Johnny be joining him?
Where else is Jeff Beck performing on his UK tour?
Depp has been confirmed for the below remaining dates on Beck’s UK tour.
June 2 – Gateshead
June 3 – Glasgow
June 4 – Manchester
June 6 – Birmingham
June 7 – York
It’s thought that Depp had committed to the tour before the dates for the trial were set.
Later on in June, Beck is headed around Europe, starting in Helsinki on June 19. It’s currently unconfirmed whether Depp will join him for this leg of the tour.
Depp and Beck have known each other for five years, with the musician introducing the actor onstage in Sheffield by saying: ‘He came knocking on my dressing room door about five years ago and we haven’t stopped laughing since.’
What happened with the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial?
On Wednesday, the jury confirmed that they had unanimously reached a verdict, awarding the Pirates of the Caribbean actor $10million (£8million) in compensatory damages, and a further $5million (£4million) in punitive damages.
Heard, 36, won one of her three defamation countersuit claims against Depp, and was awarded $2million (£1.6million).
Metro.co.uk understands that Heard plans to appeal the decision.
Depp sued his ex-wife for $50million (£39million) over an op-ed she wrote in 2018, about her experiences with domestic violence.
While Depp was not named in the Washington Post article, his team argued that it implied he was sexually and physically abusive over the course of their relationship – something he has firmly denied.
The Aquaman actress later countersued, seeking $100million (£79million) in damages and claiming that he libelled her by calling her a liar.
