3 min read

Johnny Depp was forced to cancel his upcoming musical appearances when he announced last week that he was dealing with an ankle fracture.

As a result, the actor, 59, could not appear with his band Hollywood Vampires for their slate of shows in the United States, which resulted in postponed shows.

However, things are looking up for Johnny, as he returned to social media for the first time after sharing the news to reveal he was making his big comeback.

“It began as a hairline break but somewhere between Cannes and The Albert Hall, it got worse rather than better. Several medical professionals have strongly suggested I avoid any and all activity for the moment and so am sadly unable to travel at the time.
