Johnny Depp’s performance at The Anthem in Washington, DC on Tuesday night was in front of familiar faces.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star kicked off his US tour with Jeff Beck in front of Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, his lawyers from the Amber Heard trial.
Depp’s girlfriend, Joelle Rich, the married lawyer who represented him in his British libel case against a British tabloid, was not seen at the show.
Vasquez spoke to Fox News Digital after the show as she signed autographs from eager fans outside the venue.

When asked about the upcoming appeal that Heard has filed, Vasquez said, “I think we’re really confident in the case that we made, the verdict, and I like our chances on the appeal.”
During Depp’s performance, fans were seen throwing underwear at the actor and musician on stage.

After joining Beck for shows in Europe this summer, the duo will embark on a US tour with upcoming shows in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Depp has dominated the headlines this year as he battled his ex-wife in their multi-million dollar defamation case.
JOHNNY DEPP VERDICT: ACTOR WINS DEFAMATION CASE AGAINST EX-WIFE AMBBER HEARD
Depp was awarded $10.35 million in damages after a jury found Heard defamed Depp on all counts after a nearly seven weeks of trial in Virginia on the basis of allegations of domestic violence and sexual assault. Heard lost the defamation case, but was awarded $2 million in her countersuit when jurors found that Depp defamed her through his lawyer.
Heard filed a notice of appeal in July challenging the verdict in Depp’s defamation suit against her.
Heard, 36, is asking the Virginia Court of Appeals to overturn the panel’s decision after a shocking live-streamed trial version that included allegations that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor had penetrated her with a liquor bottle and that she had cut off the tip of his finger in a fit of rage.

During the trial, Depp and Beck took the stage abroad while the jury deliberated.

On the track “Sad Motherf—-in’ Parade,” Depp says, “You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch… If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand.”

Depp appeared at MTV’s VMA show in late August and appeared almost like a moon man. His cameo sparked one reaction from Heard’s sister, who called him “disgusting” and “clearly desperate”.
