Johnny Depp Injury Postpones Vampires Gigs

As Johnny Depp recovers from a fractured ankle, his Hollywood Vampires band are forced to reschedule their upcoming shows.

On Monday (5.29,) the now 59-year-old actor took to Instagram to announce that due to his leg injury he is unable to perform this week, writing:

“My Dear Friends, I am very sorry to say that I have fractured my ankle, which is a drag!!! It began as a hairline break but somewhere between Cannes and the Royal Albert Hall, it got worse rather than better.”

The superstar actor confirmed that his medical team strongly advised him to “avoid any and all activity” and that he is currently “unable to travel”. 

“To that end, the guys and I are very sorry to miss you in New Hampshire, Boston and New York but fear not, I promise we will bring an amazing show to all of you in Europe and bring our absolute best to the East Coast later this summer and make it up to all those who have paid for shows!!!” he continued. “Again, sincerest apologies. All my love and respect.”

The Hollywood Vampires posted their own Instagram statement, explaining that Depp was “resting up” so he can be ready for the European tour. 

Made up of Depp, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Tommy Henriksen, the band is scheduled to begin their European tour on June 8 in Bucharest, Romania and end on July 23 in Wolfsburg, Germany.

The three Hollywood Vampires postponed American shows have been rescheduled for late-July.
