In a head-spinning week for pop music, Destiny’s Child have announced that – as well as their recorded return – they will also be reuniting live to perform at the half-time show of this year’s Super Bowl.
It’s been a ridiculous week for returning music stars; admittedly the biggest by some stretch has been David Bowie’s return after a decade long recorded hiatus, the 66 year-old announced a new single – instantly released – and an album to come in March. Meanwhile Justin Timberlake put up a video on Youtube which saw the star talk through his preparations for what would appear to be a new album. And Beyonce revealed that Destiny’s Child were to release their first new material in eight years, with a new track appearing on a collection of their best ballads, the whole album titled Love Songs.
Now Us Magazine claim that Knowles – who was already down to headline the event on February 3 at the American Football showcase in New Orleans – will open the show before being joined mid-point by her Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who will perform a medley of the bands hits culminating in new track ‘Nuclear’. If it turns out to be true, it will be the trio’s first appearance live since 2006.
