Hollywood Vampires just announced on Instagram that they had to cancel three forthcoming US tours due to Depp’s injured ankle. “We regret to inform you that the Hollywood Vampires will have to reschedule our three US tour dates this week.” Johnny has a terrible ankle injury as a result of his recent appearances, and his doctor has recommended him not to travel. He is disappointed by this turn of events, but he is looking forward to resting up so that all four Vampires may give their all on the European tour.” Depp also issued a message, apologizing to supporters and explaining why they would be unable to tour for the next few days: “Dear companions, I’m sad to report that I’ve fractured my ankle, which is a pain! It started as a hairline break, but somewhere between Cannes and the Royal Albert Hall, it deteriorated rather than improved.
Several medical professionals have strongly advised me to avoid all activities for the time being, thus I am unable to travel.” He conveyed his and the surviving members’ anguish and assured his supporters that he would return soon: “To that end, the guys and I are very sorry to miss you in New Hampshire, Boston, and New York, but don’t worry, 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 to make up for those who have paid for those shows!” Please accept my heartfelt apologies once more. All my love and admiration… J.D.” The band’s postponed US gigs will take place at the same venues, with revised dates of July 28th, 29th, and 30th.
