American actor and musician Johnny Depp and legendary British guitarist Jeff Beck are kicking off their European tour in Finland on Sunday.

The two performers are headlining the Helsinki Blues Festival.

Following Sunday's gig in Kaisaniemi Park in Helsinki, the pair is scheduled to play at Tampere Hall on Monday.

Depp's visit to Finland comes just weeks after a high-profile defamation case played out in a US court between him and ex-wife Amber Heard.

Ilta-Sanomat (siirryt toiseen palveluun) reports that Depp's private plane touched down at Helsinki Airport on Saturday night.
