Mike Leffingwell, also known as Mike Axle, is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the Nashville entertainment industry and probably the most controversial promoter in the scene and he hopes to take Johnny Depp’s band on a tour in 2023. Known for bouncing back after several issues, including litigations, Mike has reached out to Johnny Depp’s people, offering a tour for his band, Hollywood Vampire, after winning his defamation lawsuit.
Music has been described by some as a form of therapy for many. Over the years, several platforms have been created to help as many people as possible worldwide to enjoy the several benefits of music. Music festivals and tours remain important parts of the industry and the likes of Mike Leffingwell have played a major role in bringing the best acts to their fans. He is again looking to bring his creativity to bear by working with another music band filled with amazing talents.
Hollywood Vampires is made up of several great artists, including Alice Cooper. The decision by Mike Leffingwell, who comes highly recommended by other rock artists, with the hope of taking the band on a tour scheduled for 2023 is not surprising. According to the Nashville promoter, “Johnny Depp’s trial with Amber Heard is mainly to show the world how being in a toxic relationship can hurt your career.” Mike also describes the move as part of the process of helping to restore Johnny’s name, especially considering the situation with Amber Heard and the allegations of marrying for money and fame and not love.
Amber’s claims have come under strong scrutiny and criticsim in recent times, with allegations that she cooked up the black eye stories as well as parts of the “marital issues” she was said to be having with Johnny. She has also painted the MeToo movement in bad light, fabricating stories about her marriage, especially considering that a good number of women actually suffer different forms of marital abuse.
MeToo is a social movement created to combat abuse and harassment, creating a platform for people to speak out and publicize allegations. The phrase “Me Too” dates back to 2006, after assault survivor and activist, Tarana Burke, used it on Myspace, a social media platform.
