Great American Pop Report: Beyoncé should wait 6 years for a Destiny's Child reunion tour

WATCH  | With '80s pop star and Rickroll inspiration Rick Astley prepping for a new tour, '90s icons Destiny's Child should consider waiting a little longer if they want to reunite on the road.

Rick Astley recently appeared on NBC's "Today" to discuss his career and 2017 European tour.

WATCH  | That got us wondering: If Beyoncé decides she's tired of the solo life, how long should she wait to start touring again with Destiny's Child -- who, if you don't count the Super Bowl halftime show in 2013, broke up in 2006?

WATCH  | For financial reasons, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams might want to wait at least six more years before they collaborate again for a tour. And, yes, we understand they made $70.8 million domestically during their final tour in 2006, according to Billboard.

WATCH  | So, why wait? One of the most successful rock bands of all time, the Eagles, disbanded in 1980 and waited 14 years to reunite for their Hell Freezes Over tour. Grossing more than $142 million in North America alone, it was the most lucrative tour of 1995.

WATCH  | And if Destiny's Child waits 21 years, that might be even better: The legendary rock trio the Police broke up in 1986, but when Sting and his band mates reunited in 2007, their one-year reunion tour made $362 million. At the time, it was the third-highest grossing tour ever.

That kind of cash might be worth the wait

If Destiny's Child follows the Eagles' model, they should return to touring in the year 2020. And if the girl-group waits as long as the Police did, they'll be coming to an arena near you in 2027.

In 2027, Beyoncé will turn 46 years old. But don't pretend age would stop Queen Bey, Kelly and Michelle from putting on a show or perhaps generating half a billion dollars on tour.
