Hollywood star Johnny Depp is set to join Jeff Beck onstage in Glasgow just days after winning his multimillion-dollar US lawsuit against former wife Amber Heard.

Depp first popped up onstage at Beck’s London and Sheffield dates earlier this week.

Fans found his initial appearance at the Sheffield date particularly surprising, as it was only two days after final evidence was given at his six-week court case against ex-wife Amber Heard.

He then went on to join Beck onstage for two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

A PR agency managing the Isolation tour confirmed to STV News that the Pirates of the Caribbean star will be joining all remaining dates of the tour’s UK leg.

Depp will join Beck onstage at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on June 3.

It comes as Depp was awarded compensatory damages of $10m (£8m) and a further $5m (£4m) in punitive damages in his highly-publicised defamation trial against Heard.

Depp sued the Aquaman actress for $50m over a 2018 article she wrote for The Washington Post in which she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse”.

The article does not mention Depp by name, however his legal team said it falsely implied he abused the actress while they were together – the jury unanimously agreed.

“Musical soulmates” Depp and Beck released their first single as a duo in 2020, a re-imagining of John Lennon’s ‘Isolation’.

At the time, Beck said that fans would hear more from the duo “in a little while”, but hoped they would find “some comfort and solidarity in our take on this Lennon classic”.

Upcoming UK tour dates:

  • Thursday, June 2, 2022 – Gateshead (The Sage)
  • Friday, June 3, 2022 – Glasgow (Royal Concert Hall)
  • Saturday, June 4, 2022 – Manchester (O2 Apollo)
  • Monday, June 6, 2022 – Birmingham (Symphony Hall)
