Johnny Depp was cheered on stage in the UK last night (2 June) after wining his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Depp was performing on stage at Sage Gateshead alongside Jeff Beck, who he's been accompanying on tour.
The news comes as Depp was spotted around Newcastle earlier this week, enjoying a pint with Sam Fender as news of his court case win came in on 1 June.
What a gig! So so grateful for the last minute opportunity to see Johnny Depp on stage with Jeff Beck. We had backstage passes but at the last minute we were turned away because they were trying to get Johnny safely out of the building. Gutted is an understatement.

The long running trial finally drew to a close this week and while Heard was in the Virginia courthouse to hear the verdict, Depp was enjoying a few drinks with Beck and Fender.
As the jury decided to award the Pirates of the Caribbean star $10 million in damages and found that he had been defamed by Heard, Depp continued his tour of the UK with Beck.
Taking to the stage last night, Depp was met with roars of applause as Beck joked: "There’s someone here. You may not know who it is."
He added: "What a result. What a result!" seemingly in reference to Depp's court case win, reports the Daily Mail.
While Depp and Beck's collaboration might seem a little out of the blue to those not familiar with the stars, they have actually been working together for some time.
Back in 2020, Depp and the legendary blues-rock guitarist announced that they would be collaborating on an album together.
With Beck saying: "Given all the hard days and true ‘isolation’ that people are going through in these challenging times, we decided now might be the right time to let you all hear it. You’ll be hearing more from Johnny and me in a little while, but until then we hope you find some comfort and solidarity in our take on this Lennon classic."
The musician then shared a cover of John Lennon's 'Isolation'.
While Depp added: "We cannot and must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony. Create something today that will benefit yourselves and others tomorrow. Do anything you think could be of use to brighten someone’s day. Draw, read, paint, think, learn, make a film on your phone, play an instrument if you play; if you don’t, learn."
The release date for their album is yet to be announced.
