On Sunday, he performed alongside Beck at Sheffield City Hall much to the surprise of audience members who weren’t expecting him to pop up on the UK tour. During the show, Depp and Beck sang their 2020 song Isolation, a remake of John Lennon’s 1970 hit. The Edward Scissorhands actor, who is also part of the band Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, also performed a couple of other covers, with he and Beck rocking out to Marvin Gay’s What’s Going On and Jimi Hendrix’s Little Wing.Many expected Depp to remain in Fairfax, Virginia where the bombshell libel trial has played out for more than a month, and where a verdict is imminent. Depp is suing ex-wife Heard over a 2018 article she wrote for The Washington Post, in which she detailed her experience of domestic abuse.
