The A-lister's rock band, Hollywood Vampires, which also includes veteran singer Alice Cooper and ex-Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, will take to the stage at the Gröna Lund theme park in Stockholm.
Hollywood Vampires will be swooping into Sweden on May 30th, a post on Gröna Lund's Instagram announced on Wednesday.
 
"Boom. Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry take Hollywood Vampires to Gröna Lund!! 30/5 is when it's happening, yeaaaaah," is a rough translation of the very excited-sounding message.

The supergroup was formed last year by the A-list Pirates of the Caribbean and Sweeney Todd actor and his rocker friends to honour the music of fellow icons who died from excess in the 1970s.
 
It takes its name from a celebrity drinking club and sometime band formed by Alice Cooper 40 years ago which apparently included The Who drummer Keith Moon and at least one member of The Beatles.
 
Hollywood Vampires released their debut album last year, which featured appearances from stars Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Dracula star Christopher Lee.
 
Gröna Lund theme park, which hosts a range of annual outdoor gigs is this summer set to welcome other global acts including American soul legend Lionel Richie, New Zealand band Fat Freddy's Drop, Britpop veterans Suede and UK pop group Little Mix.
 
Last year's star performer was Lenny Kravitz who ended up making global headlines after he ripped his trousers and revealed that he didn't have any underwear on.
