Johnny Depp joined eight-time GRAMMY winner Jeff Beck for a performance at Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday (May 30) as part of Beck’s European tour, marking their second consecutive performance together in the U.K.
“He came knocking on my dressing room door about five years ago and we haven’t stopped laughing since,” Beck said, introducing the Pirates of the Caribbean actor to the stage.
As Depp, an award-winning actor, entered the stage he was met with a roaring applause by the audience. He then strummed his guitar and delivered a rockin’ performance of several songs alongside Beck.
According to social media posts, Depp and Beck performed a series of seven songs together during the show, including their 2020 collaboration “Isolation,” which is a cover of John Lennon’s 1970 hit, as well as Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.”
Several of the performance were met with standing ovations.
Depp, who is currently awaiting the jury’s verdict in the multi-million dollar defamation trial again his ex-wife, Amber Heard, also joined Beck on Sunday (May 29) evening in Sheffield, where the famous actor and popular rock guitarist delivered a multiple song performance.
Beck’s European tour continues through June 7, where the trek will wrap up at York Barbican in the United Kingdom. Prior to wrapping the tour, Beck will make stops at Saga, Gateshead, on June 2, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on June 3, O2 Apollo, Manchester on June 4, and the Symphony Hall in Birmingham on June 6.
Depp began his career as a musician when he founded rock band The Hollywood Vampires, with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry in 2012.
