Depp, 58, who is currently embroiled in a defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, made a surprise appearance with his guitar, as part of Beck's European tour.

During the show, Depp and Beck performed John Lennon's 'Isolation' - a rendition of which they released a few years ago. They also performed Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing'.

Writing on Twitter, one shocked fan said: "Just been to see Jeff Beck at Sheffield City Hall, he had a surprise special guest, Johnny Depp!!"

And another added: "The fact that Johnny Depp is in Sheffield makes me want to cry!!!!! Im off on a road trip."

The appearance comes as both Depp and Heard's attorneys rested their cases and offered closing arguments last week.

Depp is suing his former partner Heard for $50 million for libel in the state of Virginia, following abuse claims that she made in an op-ed for the Washington Post back in 2018.

Depp’s legal team argued that the article implies Heard was physically and sexually abused by Depp when they were married, although the article does not refer to him by name. 

After six weeks of testimony for the high-profile court case, both legal teams finally wrapped up on Thursday after Johnny Depp's team rested their case.

The jury is now deliberating.

Before the jury began their deliberations, Judge Penney Azcarate laid out the instructions that jurors must follow during the process.

She noted that in order for jurors to reach a verdict that would favour Amber Heard, they would have to agree that the statements made by Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman were done with malice.

This would justify Amber's $100 million counter-suit against Mr Depp, which claims that Mr Waldman defamed her in statements to the press following her op-ed article.

For a verdict that would favour Johnny Depp, jurors must read the entire 2018 article written by Heard and find that she acted with the knowledge that her statement was false or a wilful disregard of the truth.
