Tony Hicks of the Contra Costa Times was on hand for the Destiny’s Child performance at the Oakland Arena on Saturday (September 3), admitting, “it’s certainly time for Beyonce to leave Kelly Rowlands and Michelle Williams.” Hicks explained, “It’s not that Beyonce is that much more talented. She’s always dominated the group, but never as much as now, especially with the renewed superstar power gained from her 2003 solo record. Her charisma is such that she simply can’t be anything but a solo artist anymore. She was just that for much of Saturday’s show.”
