Johnny Depp Injury: Fractured Ankle Delays Concerts


Johnny Depp Forced to Take a Break

Johnny Depp barely had time to enjoy the applause of the audience again before he was forced to take a break due to a painful physical problem. “Dear friends, I’m sorry to inform you that I have fractured my ankle,” he began in his social media announcement. “At first it was a minor fracture, but between Cannes and the Royal Albert Hall the situation has worsened instead of improving.”

Hollywood Vampires Concerts Postponed

On the Croisette he thrilled fans with his performance in the opening film, Jeanne du Barry, while on the London theater stage he performed in tribute to Jeff Beck. After all, his passion for music is well known: he has a rock band, the Hollywood Vampires, created together with musicians Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. “Many doctors have strongly suggested that I avoid any activity for the moment,” the actor added. “So I can’t travel.” Three Hollywood Vampires concerts scheduled for next week in the United States have been postponed. “Me and the boys are very sorry not to be present in New Hampshire, Boston and New York,” Depp concluded. “But don’t worry: I promise we will make it up with a spectacular show in Europe and then the best on the East Coast.”

Johnny Depp to Rest Before European Dates

“His ankle was already bothering him in Cannes, but he wanted to honor his commitments,” a source told TMZ. “He is devastated at the idea of postponing his shows (already rescheduled for the end of July, ed.), but he must listen to the specialists: now flying could worsen the situation, so he will have to rest to face the European dates without any problems.” Because, after a period that was anything but easy, he wants to keep smiling.
