Johnny Depp reunites with Hollywood Vampires Band for dating abroad after defamation lawsuit

Johnny Depp returns to the band.

The 59-year-old actor is embarking on a tour abroad with the band Hollywood Vampires, announcing concert dates in Germany and Luxembourg for the summer of 2023. He is in the group with rock stars Joe Perry, Alice Cooper and Tommy Henriksen.

In March 2021, the Hollywood Vampires canceled their tour, citing pandemic travel restrictions. “We are very disappointed to announce that the Hollywood Vampires must cancel our rescheduled UK / Europe tour this summer,” they said in a statement. “We kept trying to make it a reality, but unfortunately due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 travel restrictions, it just is not possible.”

They added: “Thank you for your understanding and we will be back with you when the world returns to normal!”

In recent weeks, Depp has been abroad appearing with musician Jeff Beck. A source told PEOPLE that he “went ahead” with his defamation lawsuit in Virginia against his ex-wife Amber Heard and was “happy it ended”.

“Although he is relieved of the jury’s verdict, he is not happy about it,” the expert added.

The verdict was announced on June 1, with the seven-member jury siding mainly with Depp, awarding him more than $ 10 million in damages. Herd, 36, also won one of her three defamation lawsuits, and her jury awarded her $ 2 million.

The source told PEOPLE, “He is not even talking about the trial now. He filed the lawsuit because he deemed it necessary. He has moved on. But now he can go back to what he likes to do. He likes to play and has a busy summer ahead. “He also looks forward to continuing to work. He just wants his career back. He likes shooting.”

Following the verdict, Depp said in a statement that “the jury gave me back my life.” Heard, meanwhile, has called the ruling “backwards” for women and plans to appeal the verdict. In an interview with Savannah Guthrie for NBC News Date which was broadcast on Friday, Herd said that she “does not have a bad mood at all” or “bad feelings” towards her ex-husband.

Depp has another special test coming up. Greg Brooks, location manager on one of Depp’s films City of Lies, accused the actor of punching him twice in the ribs after screaming at him on set in an alleged altercation on April 13, 2017. Brooks filed a political lawsuit in the Los Angeles Supreme Court in July 2018 and the trial is set to begin in July. In August 2018, Depp, who has denied being attacked during filming, filed a response claiming that he feared for his own safety during the alleged incident.

The actor is reunited with his lawyers from the Heard trial, Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew, for the case. The Law & Crime Network reported that his request to have cameras in the Los Angeles court has so far been rejected, in contrast to the live stream, which was widely publicized in the six-week Depp v. Heard trial.
