Johnny Depp attended a rock concert in London without scheduling prior, as he awaits the verdict of his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

The actor performed at the Royal Albert Hall with British guitarist Jeff Beck, famous for his work in rock and roll music – the second time the two appeared together after Sunday’s Sheffield performance. 

The jury’s deliberation on Depp’s million-dollar lawsuit against Heard is scheduled to resume on Tuesday. The 58-year-old sues his ex-wife for an article she published in which she declares herself a domestic abuse survivor. Heard counter-sued for $100 million. 

Before the weekend, attorneys for both sides delivered final arguments to closing statements. The deliberation started soon after, and it was adjourned until Monday so that everyone could enjoy Memorial Day Weekend in America.

Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck performed John Lennon’s “Isolation,” which they collaborated on in 2020. The performance prompted different reactions from the audience. 

In an interview with the PA news agency, 38-year-old Angela Flannery from Southend said that Depp had “smashed it,” further stating that she did not know he would perform. “I’ll die happy, I’ve been in the same room as him now.” 

However, Peter Schmidt, who came a long way from Frankfurt to London, particularly for the concert, claimed he felt “duped” and called Depp an “embarrassment.” 

“I had been waiting 50 years to see Jeff Beck live… this was the biggest let-down of my life,” he stated, according to Reuters. 

Depp is set to perform again at the London venue on Tuesday – the same day the verdict could come.
