Johnny Depp is so close to the lawyers who helped him beat Amber Heard in court that he treated them like royalty at his first US concert since the trial.
Johnny began his national tour with Jeff Beck on October 4 at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, his attorneys, had some of the best seats.
Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, who represented Johnny in his legal victory over his ex-wife in nearby Virginia this summer, smiled as they took selfies backstage… while wearing VIP passes around their necks.
Chew’s outfit isn’t limited to a suit; he looks at home at any music festival, and Camille’s all-black ensemble is as chic as ever.
Following the trial, Johnny Depp became heavily involved in music, recording an album with Jeff and touring throughout Europe.
They are currently on tour in the United States, with stops in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. Amber is currently in Spain with her one-year-old child.
Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp started their joint tour at The Anthem in Washington, DC.
Beck and his supporting band opened the evening with a solo performance (bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Anika Nilles and keyboardist Robert Stevenson).
After opening with “Freeway Jam,” he went on to perform his famous renditions of “You Know You Know,” “Big Block,” and “Brush with the Blues,” as well as “Caroline No” from his new album with Depp, “18.”
Midway through the show, Depp emerged from the wings to perform with Beck on songs from the new album, including “This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr” and “Isolation,” before closing the night with a cover of Killing Joke’s “The Death and Resurrection Show.”
The tour, which was first announced on August 15, kicked off on September 23 in Texas, with Beck (alone) sharing the bill with longtime musical pals ZZ Top for the first six dates. Beck joined ZZ Top on stage for their encores each night. On September 25, they performed “La Grange.”
Beck and Depp’s tour will begin on the east coast, with several dates in the Midwest (including one in Canada) before heading west. Beck and his band will kick off their October 4 performance with “Freeway Jam.” Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster. More dates will be announced soon.
