Jeff Beck will be joined by Johnny Depp on his upcoming U.S. tour in support of their newly released musical collaboration, 18. The tour, originally announced on Aug. 15, begins on Sept. 23 Texas where Beck will share the bill for the first six shows with longtime musical friends, ZZ Top. On Aug. 31, Beck revealed that he will be joined by Depp for headline dates beginning on Oct. 4, as they head up the east coast before continuing with several mid-west stops (including one date in Canada) before heading to the west coast. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster. More dates will be announced.

The tour will focus on the new album as well as explore Beck’s legendary career through instrumentals like “You Know You Know,” “A Day in the Life” and “Brush with the Blues.” Beck’s current band is bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Anika Nilles and keyboardist Robert Stevenson.

From the original Aug. 15 announcement: Beck found a kindred spirit in Depp when the two met in 2016. They bonded quickly over cars and guitars and spent most of their time together trying to make each other laugh. At the same time, Beck’s appreciation grew for Depp’s serious songwriting skills and his ear for music. That talent and their chemistry convinced Beck they should make an album together.

Depp agreed and they started in 2019. Over the next three years, they recorded a mix of Depp originals along with a wide range of covers that touches on everything from Celtic and Motown, to the Beach Boys and Killing Joke. “We were going to call the album ‘Kitchen Sink’ because we threw everything in it,” the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says with a laugh. “The only game plan we had was to play songs we like and see where they took us.” The pair recently wrapped a European tour.

Beck, who turned 78 on June 24, is universally acknowledged as one of the most talented and significant guitarists in the world and has played alongside some of the greatest artists of rock, blues, and jazz. Over the course of his distinguished 50+ year career, he has earned eight Grammy Awards and been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice – once as a member of the Yardbirds and again as a solo artist. In the summer of 2016, the guitar virtuoso celebrated his five decades of music with a concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl with special guests including Buddy Guy, Steven Tyler, Beth Hart, Billy F. Gibbons and Jan Hammer.

    !Yippeeee!

    Looking forward to the Beck/Depp North American Tour!!!

    Hope & trust each show will be videotaped because alike many who want to attend their shows in America in-person, we just can not afford buying the ticket especially on a ‘fixed’ monthly income!!!
