Johnny Depp surprised the audience at a Jeff Beck concert with an unexpected performance.
Two days after attorneys delivered closing arguments in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, the actor took to the stage with his guitar on Sunday.
Two days after lawyers presented closing arguments in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp returned to his musical roots over the weekend.
The actor surprised fans at a Jeff Beck concert in England on Sunday (May 29), according to several social media images and videos published online. According to sources, Depp walked on the stage with his guitar alongside Beck at the Sheffield show to perform their 2020 duet “Isolation,” a reworking of John Lennon’s 1970 classic.
They also covered “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye and “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix.
Depp aspired to be a musician before becoming an actor. He even testified on the evidence about his early musical ambitions, stating that he wasn’t having the success he desired, prompting him to go to acting.
Depp is also a member of the Hollywood Vampires, a band that includes Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
Depp and Heard have both testified in district court in Fairfax, Virginia, since April 11, and the case is now in jury deliberation. As the jury in his defamation trial against Amber Heard, his former wife prepares to continue deliberations Tuesday, actor Johnny Depp appeared to have made a surprise musical performance at a concert in the United Kingdom on Sunday night.

Depp appeared on stage at a play for guitarist Jeff Beck’s European tour at Sheffield City Hall in Sheffield, roughly 40 miles southeast of Manchester, according to recordings and images from the event.
Depp can be seen playing the guitar and singing a cover of John Lennon’s classic “Isolation” in a video published on social media, which he and Beck released as their debut song together in April 2020.
Although Johnny Depp’s defamation trial is coming to a close, he remained in the headlines this weekend.
At a concert at Sheffield City Hall in Sheffield, England, the actor and musician played guitar alongside his longtime buddy Jeff Beck.
“Well…what a surprise we received last night when Johnny Depp joined @jeffbeckmusic on stage,” the venue said in a tweet that included a video of the two performing together. “Wishing @jeffbeckmusic much success on his incredible tour, and a huge thank you to Johnny Depp for joining us!”
Depp is no more interesting to the entire universe of the music industry. In 2012, he established the supergroup Hollywood Vampires with performers Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
On Friday, the jury in his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard began deliberations.
Depp sued Heard over a Washington Post op-ed in which she portrayed herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse” in 2018. Despite the fact that Depp was not identified in the piece, he alleges it harmed his reputation and caused him to lose work.
Heard has filed a $100 million counterclaim.
