Johnny Depp took the stage during Jeff Beck’s performance at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday (May 30).
The actor, who is currently embroiled in a high-profile legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard, appeared alongside Beck in Sheffield the night before.
Depp is suing Heard for $50m (£38.2m). He alleges that Heard implied he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about domestic violence.
Heard is filing a $100million (£80.9million) counterclaim accusing Depp of organizing a “defamation campaign” against her and calling his lawsuit a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.
Fans shared photos and videos of the actor’s unannounced performance at the Albert Hall on social media.
Performing in Sheffield, Depp – who began his career as a musician and formed The Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry in 2015 – and Beck performed their 2020 collaboration Isolation, a reworking of a 1970 John Lennon song .
They also performed covers of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”.
A report in meeting suggested the actor will also be on stage with Beck on another date at the Albert Hall tomorrow (May 31).
