Johnny Depp to Perform in Prague Along With Guitarist Jeff Beck
British blues and rock guitarist Jeff Beck is due to perform in Prague in July along with US actor and musician Johnny Depp, the organizers announced on Wednesday.
Just last week, a United States jury awarded Depp $15 million in his defamation suit against ex-wife Amber Heard.
A musical collaboration between Beck and Depp was announced in April 2020, with Depp describing the English guitarist as “my dear friend and my brother […] and one of my all-time guitar heroes.”
Jeff Beck, an eight-time Grammy Award winner, has been ranked by Rolling Stone magazine among the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. He last performed in the Czech Republic eight years ago.
The gig, scheduled for July 11, is part of his European tour.
While Depp is best known for acting, he’s further delved into the music world in recent years as a member of Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
Depp also famously starred as a rock star in Tom Petty’s “Into the Great Wide Open” video and turned up performing with the Black Keys at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. He’s also hopped onstage with Stone Temple Pilots in recent years.
In June 2018, Depp played onstage with the Hollywood Vampires at the Prague Rocks festival in Letňany, which was headlined by Ozzy Osbourne.
