Johnny Depp and his band, the Hollywood Vampires, have had to delay their early U.S. tour due to Depp’s ankle injury. The band made an announcement on Instagram, stating that their show in New Hampshire and several other shows will be postponed until July because of Depp’s painful injury.

According to TMZ, Depp’s ankle was already bothering him during Cannes, but he wanted to fulfill his commitments for Jeanne du Barry and a tribute show for Jeff Beck. However, the condition worsened over time.

During Cannes, Depp introduced his new romance, Jeanne du Barry, to an enthusiastic reception. However, he faced criticism when he arrived late to a press conference and became defensive when asked about feeling boycotted by Hollywood.

Following his highly publicized legal battle with Amber Heard, Depp has struggled to secure a major American release. Meanwhile, director Maïwenn, who worked with Depp on Jeanne du Barry, admitted to spitting on a journalist, potentially in response to an investigation into rape allegations against her ex-husband Luc Besson. Reports suggest that Depp and Maïwenn had a tumultuous working relationship throughout the film’s production.

In summary, Johnny Depp and the Hollywood Vampires have rescheduled their U.S. tour due to Depp’s ankle injury. The injury, sustained during the Cannes Film Festival, has worsened, preventing him from fulfilling his tour commitments. Depp’s personal life and professional struggles continue to generate attention, but he remains focused on his recovery and future performances.
