Johnny Depp was seen using a walking cane after he arrived in Boston ahead of his concert with his band The Hollywood Vampires.

The sighting comes after the band was forced to postpone the show owing to an ankle injury he sustained.

The Hollywood Vampires, which includes Depp as well as Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Tommy Henriksen, rescheduled three of their US tour dates following the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s injury.

The affected dates were May 30 in Manchester, N.H., May 31 in Boston and June 1 in Bethel, New York.

"We are sad to share that the Hollywood Vampires will be rescheduling our three US tour dates this coming week," the band announced at the time.

"Johnny has sustained a painful injury to his ankle following his recent appearances and has been advised by his doctor not to travel.

"He is devastated by this turn of events, but looks forward to resting up so all four Vampires can bring their absolute best to the tour in Europe."

However, the actor bounced back quickly to tour life after a three-day break as he donned a boot on his injured leg during his June 8 performance in Bucharest, Romania.

At the time, the band's photographer Kyler Clark shared that Depp was on the mend but needed time to fully recover.

As of now, Depp only has the Bethel and Manchester shows remaining before he can take a break to recuperate.
