Houston, Texas, welcomed Beyoncé back home with open arms as the global superstar brought her Renaissance World Tour to her hometown. On Saturday, the 42-year-old singer was greeted with an outpouring of support from her former Destiny’s Child bandmates.
Five out of the six overall members of the iconic girl group were present at the NRG Stadium, a heartwarming show of solidarity. Fan-captured photographs from inside the venue shared widely on social media, revealed the presence of LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, who, along with Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland, were among the founding members of Destiny’s Child. Kelly Rowland, 42, was also seen spending quality time with Michelle Williams, who joined the group in its later stages.
The only notable absence among Destiny’s Child members was Farrah Franklin, who came on board after the departures of Roberson and Luckett, but herself left the group after just a few months.
Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour kicked off earlier this year at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, marking her first solo concert venture in seven years. The tour’s setlist showcased tracks from her seventh studio album, “Renaissance,” including hits like “Alien Superstar,” “Cuff It,” “Pure/Honey,” and “Plastic Off the Sofa.” The performance was a comprehensive journey through her illustrious career, featuring timeless classics like “Crazy in Love,” “Partition,” and “Love on Top.”
Adding a special touch to the evening, Beyoncé’s 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, made a delightful appearance on stage, joining her famous mother for renditions of “My Power” and “Black Parade.”
The surprises didn’t end there. Beyoncé delighted her fans by bringing out fellow Houston native Megan Thee Stallion. The two powerhouse artists teamed up for a live performance of their 2020 hit collaboration, “Savage (Remix).” In one video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter), Beyoncé expressed her love for Megan, to which the rapper replied, “I love you, Beyoncé.”
This Houston concert marked the first time Beyoncé and Megan, 28, performed “Savage (Remix)” together in a live setting, making it an unforgettable moment for both artists and their fans.
For the past few months, it’s been rumored that the ladies of Destiny’s Child, all five of them including founding members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett (minus Farrah Franklin) will possibly celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album and introduction as a group onto the scene. Their website simply says “25 years” with a previous performance of the group (with Michelle Williams). There has been no official word from their team just yet.
