The singer jetted straight from her final Eras tour show in Japan on Saturday to make it to Las Vegas in time for the Big Game
Taylor Swift is at the Super Bowl. The singer was spotted supporting her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, before his team took on the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl on Sunday in Las Vegas. Swift flew straight from Japan to Sin City on Saturday after wrapping her last show in Tokyo as part of her worldwide Eras Tour. She touched down just in time to cheer on Kelce.
The pop star arrived with friends Blake Lively, Ice Spice, and Ashley Avignone in tow as video shared on social media showed.
While some fans were nervous about the quick turnaround it would take for Swift to make it to the game in time, the singer has made supporting Kelce a priority in recent months. In fact, when Swift took the field to embrace Kelce after the Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens, winning the AFC Conference Championship and certifying their spot in the Super Bowl, it marked the 13th game she had attended.
And while this is Swift’s first time attending the Super Bowl (at least publicly), the Chiefs are fighting to secure a back-to-back win after beating the Philadelphia Eagles during last year’s big game.
The big game caps off an exciting week for Swift, who took home two Grammy Awards during last week’s ceremony — Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year — and announced her next album of original music, Tortured Poets Department. Kelce was not in attendance due to his Super Bowl practice schedule but supported Swift from afar, joking that now the pressure was on for him to bring home a trophy of his own.
“She’s unbelievable. She’s re-writing the history books herself,” he said during a media event earlier this week. “I told her I’ll have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with hardware, too.”
Kelce added that he has had a chance to listen to some of her 11th studio album. “I have heard some of it, yes. And it is unbelievable,” he told reporters. “I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.”
