The newly single Pirates of the Caribbean star has been avoiding the public eye since his split with long time partner Vanessa Paradis, but last night he stepped back into the lime light with a vengeance in Los Angeles, Calif.
Not one to be low key, Depp, 49, took to the Hollywood Bowl stage with Aerosmith to shred it on the guitar with Steven Tyler in front of almost 18,000 people.
What song did Depp play to announce he was back from his break up and where did the crew party afterwards?
The crowd went wild as Tyler announced Depp was in the bowl, as the band prepared to perform their closing song.
“We’re going to need a little help out here,” the ex American Idol judge yelled. “Johnny Depp, are you in the house?”
Strolling out on to stage as confident as his Pirates character Jack Sparrow, Depp wore his signature wide brimmed hat and dressed all in black, making it clear he was ready to rock.
After a quick exchange with the famous band, Aerosmith and their new lead guitarist launched into the classic rock song “Train Kept A-Rollin’”.
Boldly taking on the massive guitar solos, Depp shredded it like a pro for almost five minutes.
When the song finished up, Depp hugged all the band as Tyler thanked the audience.
“Thank you LA. You’ve been some crazy mother f**kers tonight,” Tyler screamed.
After the gig, the band and Depp kicked off a massive after party at Pink Taco on the famous Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Check out the party snaps below.
“He wasn’t talking to any women,” a fellow Pink Taco party-goer told Celebuzz. “He was just hanging out with the boys.
“Johnny seemed really happy to be out and about.
“He was mingling, taking pics with fans, being really social.
“He hung out with Steven Tyler most of the night.”
Also joining in the party was Jim Carrey, Liv TylerSeth Green and Lana Del Rey.
This is the first time Depp has stepped out since splitting with his partner of 14 years, Paradis, 39.
The couple announced they had separated on July 20 this year. They have two children Lily-Rose Melody and son John “Jack” Christopher Depp III.
