Johnny Depp’s band Hollywood Vampires have now unexpectedly canceled three back to back performances. The Supergroup, which consists of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry have apologized for the cancellations but not given any explanation.  That means fans are going to do what fans do: speculate. They were concerned after the first and second cancellations but the third cancellation has the rumor mill working overtime.

Their Budapest, Slovakia, and Poland shows were both canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” No further explanation was given officially, though after their Slovakia cancellation the band released a statement saying the band was “safe and healthy.” Fans aren’t  buying that though. On Twitter many have speculated that Depp’s long-time struggle with addiction has returned. One person tweeted a photo of Depp drinking one hour before the canceled concert in Budapest. The caption reads: “Here’s Johnny Depp drinking an hour before canceling his concert due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’. He likely passed out again.” They also added, “Before they come for me, it was confirmed by the photographer. They claim he ‘fell ill at the hotel’ even though he was drinking right before the alleged incident.  


Hungarian newspaper Bikk claims that sources close to the band have confirmed “Depp is suffering a substance abuse relapse. Everything was prepared, the stage was set, the background crew was also ready for the party. It didn’t even occur to me that there could be a problem, especially since the band members also did the sound setup scheduled for the afternoon,” the source said. ” Nobody even thought about the fact that Johnny Depp didn’t take part, a colleague also set up his microphone, but this is not unusual for such stars. [Later] we heard so much that (Johnny) Depp partied too much, he couldn’t even leave the hotel. We also heard that, sure enough, a doctor was called in to see if there was anything more wrong than simply pushing rock stardom too far.”

The cancellation in Poland is said to have been because Depp became “overly excitable and passed out.” Many are worried that the singer,  who has long struggled with addiction and substance abuse issues, has relapsed.
