Mathew Knowles planning Destiny’s Child re-issues


Destinys Child

Father of Beyonce, Mathew Knowles is planning to re-release two of Destiny’s Child’s albums, with the new packages featuring a number of unreleased tracks by the group, in November. He also says he hopes to convince the trio to get back together for a reunion tour.

Knowles Senior, of course, managed the group while they were still together, and then Beyonce’s solo career. However, the father and daughter’s professional relationship ended abruptly in March last year after he was accused of stealing from her, which casts some doubt on any further business relationship between the two.

Still, Mathew told The Huffington Post: “It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it. And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible. The hardest thing would be choosing which songs they’re going to do, because we would want to mix it up with solo hits and Destiny’s Child hits. We would have to throw away some number ones from off the set list”.
