Beyoncé may have ducked out of her Coachella headline spot this year after announcing she was pregnant, but she will be strutting her stuff on stage in the desert in 2018.
And despite being a mother to the newborn twins, perfectionist Bey, 36, is already working on an elaborate show at next year’s event to make up for disappointing her fans at the last minute when she had to be replaced by Lady Gaga.
It’s going to be a spectacular show, but Coachella organizers hope that she has one more thing up her sleeve – a Destiny’s Child reunion.
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the group’s self-titled debut album (back when there were four members & no Michelle Williams), and the whisper among festival execs are s ure that they are planning on marking that milestone with some performances.
However, Dish Nation has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the Coachella hierarchy are praying that Beyonce brings Destiny’s Child back together on their main stage.
“Despite giving birth to Sir and Rumi, Beyonce is already prepping for her headline spot for the Coachella Music Festival next year. She didn’t want to disappoint her fans, but had to pull out for medical reasons. Knowing that has meant that Beyonce feels she has to give something back. For that reason, Bey is planning an incredible show and is already putting some ideas together, including possible duets and costumes and stunts. Beyonce has seen Lady Gaga & others put on epic shows in recent years, but she wants to be recognized as the greatest headliner in modern times to have played the festival. She’s made that clear to Coachella’s organizers, but they don’t quite know what she has in store. However, they are hoping there is a cherry on the icing on the top of the cake. They are well aware that Destiny’s Child will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album and hope there are whispers that B is looking to fit in some sort of tribute into her Coachella performance. Better still, they are hoping Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will roll out on stage with her and reform Destiny’s Child briefly for a medley of their hits. They’re not pushing her into anything, but the organizers know that would be an amazing get if the girls lined up together for their fans.”
Despite embarking on a solo career, Beyoncé hasn’t completely forgotten her roots and has performed with Destiny’s Child in recent times.
During her infamously fierce 2013 Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show performance, she was joined by Kelly and Michelle as they ran through DC classics, “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women.” The trio also sang Bey’s hit “Single Ladies” together.
They later appeared at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in Las Vegas in 2015. But that time they only performed Kelly’s song “Say Yes.”
