2022 – Johnny Depp surprisingly appears again on stage in London amid a defamation case

Johnny Depp.

  • Johnny Depp made a second surprise appearance at Jeff Beck’s concert in the UK on Monday.
  • The actor shared the stage with Beck at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
  • Depp is currently awaiting judgment in his defamation case with his ex-wife, Amber Heard.

Johnny Depp appeared on stage alongside musician Jeff Beck in the UK for the second night in a row, just days after the feud in his defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard ended.

The concert footage, widely shared on social media, shows Depp on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London with his guitar singing alongside Beck. According to Sky News, in 2020 the couple performed their collaboration “Isolation”, a cover of John Lennon’s song released in 1970.

“He knocked on the locker room door about five years ago and we haven’t stopped laughing since,” Beck said in a video clip on stage. “We kept it a secret because…obvious reasons…here he is.”

This is Depp’s second stage appearance alongside Beck. On Sunday, Depp surprised fans at a Jeff Beck concert in Sheffield, England.

As Insider previously reported, footage from the event shows the pair performing on a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing.” They also performed the unreleased Depp song, a song by Mrs. Hedy Lamarr.

These appearances on stage come just days after Depp and Heard’s attorneys presented the final arguments in the couple’s ongoing defamation trial.

Johnny Depp first filed a lawsuit against Heard in March 2019, accusing her of defaming him in a 2018 Washington Post opinion piece in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence. Depp claimed that Heard physically and verbally abused him throughout their relationship. Heard has denied the allegations and counterclaims, detailing in court filings at least 10 counts saying Depp physically abused her, often in what she described as alcohol or drug-induced tantrums.

The jury is currently considering the case, which began on April 11 and lasted six weeks of testimony.
