The Hollywood Vampires have been forced to postpone their U.S. Tour after band member Johnny Depp suffered an ankle fracture. Depp turned to social media to give his fans a health update, sharing that he’s under strict doctor’s orders and that medical professionals advised him to restrain from traveling and rest his ankle. The musician previously performed at Royal Albert Hall in England and made an appearance at Cannes Film Festival.
Said Depp: “My Dear Friends, I am 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. Several medical professionals have strongly suggested I avoid any and all activity for the moment and so am sadly unable to travel at this time … 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 those who have paid for those shows!!!”
Depp’s message was also shared on the Hollywood Vampires social media account alongside the rescheduled dates. The group — comprised of Depp, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Alice Cooper, and Tommy Henriksen – will now visit the East Coast in late July, making stops in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 28, Manchester, New Hampshire, on July 29, and Bethel, New York, on July 30 at the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts.
