Johnny Depp announces summer 2023 tour with Hollywood Vampires
The actor, who recently won his trial against Amber Heard, will be joined by original band members Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Tommy Henriksen.
Johnny Depp has announced the revival of his supergroup, The Hollywood Vampires, for a 2023 European tour. The actor will reunite with the band’s core members, Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, with whom he formed the group in 2012. Rhythm guitarist Tommy Henriksen, who performed with them during their 2015 debut live performance in Los Angeles, will also be joining.
On Tuesday (21 June), the rock band’s official Instagram shared the news alongside a new tour poster. The caption reads: “The Hollywood Vampires are BACK!! We’re coming to Germany and Luxembourg Summer 2023! Tickets go on sale Monday 27 June at 11:00am CET.”
Since their formation, the group have released two studio albums, Hollywood Vampires (2015) and Rise (2019).
The news of the tour comes after Depp’s recent defamation case win against ex-wife Amber Heard in which a jury found that Heard had defamed Depp.
Despite Heard’s allegations of abuse throughout the six-week trial, which took place on camera, the jury found that a column she wrote for The Washington Post about domestic violence was defamatory and awarded $10.35m (£8.2m) in damages to Depp, even though the article did not name him.
Before and after his trial win, the actor and musician was seen performing around the UK with rocker Jeff Beck, ahead of the pair’s forthcoming album, which releases next month.
