Johnny Depp Postpones US Tour Due to 'Painful' Injury

Hollywood Vampires may have to remain in their coffins for a while. After an ankle injury, Johnny Depp and his band postponed their early U.S. tour dates.

Due to Depp's "painful injury," the band announced on Instagram that they will postpone their Tuesday gig in Manchester, New Hampshire, and subsequent shows until July.

TMZ alleges that Depp "tweaked" his ankle earlier this month during the Cannes Film Festival and "stressed it further" during subsequent musical performances, causing a fracture and a doctor's order not to fly.

TMZ said that Depp "wanted to honor his commitments for Jeanne du Barry and for Jeff [Beck, whom Depp and his group have honored with recent tribute shows]."

At Cannes this month, Depp premiered his latest romance, Jeanne du Barry, to a seven-minute standing ovation.

The following morning, Depp arrived late to his press conference with filmmaker Maïwenn and became defensive when questioned about his Hollywood boycott statement.

Depp has not had a significant American release since his public, violent court struggle with Amber Heard.

Meanwhile, Maïwenn admitted to spitting on a journalist who thinks she did so in retribution for their outlet's rape probe of her ex-husband Luc Besson. She and Depp "screamed at each other the whole time" while filming Jeanne du Barry.

Depp's future following his Cannes "comeback" remains unknown. According to TMZ, "his doctor believes flying could make the situation much worse," therefore he's "devastated" to postpone his U.S. gigs. He will relax so the European dates go well.”
