Johnny Depp appeared in Sheffield, the English city, on Sunday, for a surprise performance with musician Jeff Beck, who’s currently touring the UK. 

The two rocked out to their 2020 collaboration ‘Isolation’, which is a remake of John Lennon’s 1970 track. Other covers performed by the duo include Marvin Gay’s ‘What’s Going On’ and Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Little Wing’. 

Deadline also reported about speculations of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ actor joining Beck on his next tour stops at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 30 and May 31. 

Depp appeared as a surprise as fans cheered, watching the two passionate performers. The actor’s hair appeared a lighter shade than it was during the Amber Heard trial at Fairfax, Virginia. 

Before becoming an actor, the 58-year-old had started off as a musician. Depp also formed the supergroup Hollywood Vampires with Joe Perry and Alice Cooper in 2015. Speaking to Rolling Stone, he had once commented “Music will always be my first love”, adding, “I pick up the guitar and space out and drool.”

The actor is on a break from the high-profile libel case involving his ex-wife. The proceedings with Heard have played out in the media, with Depp garnering support in the court of public opinion. However, now, the jury is out for deliberations and if they rule in Depp’s favour, the actor would get $50 million from Heard for defaming him. If the verdict doesn’t go Depp’s way, Heard stands to make double the amount due to the ‘Aquaman‘ star’s countersuit.

Depp’s core contention is an op-ed piece Heard wrote in the Washington Post, where she didn’t name Depp but indicated he was “a public figure representing domestic abuse”. Depp’s allegation is that he lost roles due to Heard’s accusations in the article. The case began on April 11 and a decision is expected by Tuesday at the earliest.
