Following four consecutive nights of packed performances at the legendary Tokyo Dome, Taylor Swift is anticipated to embark on another extensive journey: a lengthy flight back to the United States, with limited time remaining before the Super Bowl commences on Sunday evening.
That question has captured the attention of audiences for weeks: will Swift be able to attend the game where her boyfriend Travis Kelce is playing for the Kansas City Chiefs?
Swift’s final concert in Tokyo marked the end of her Japan leg of the Eras Tour. Fans from all over the globe were left wondering if she would have sufficient time to make it back to Las Vegas.
Japan’s position is advantageous for Taylor Swift. Tokyo is located to the west of the international dateline, making it 17 hours ahead of Las Vegas.
After her concert, she will have ample time to return to Las Vegas if she departs immediately. The concert will conclude in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Swift has been frequently seen at Kansas City Chiefs games since she appeared at Kelce’s family suite in September last year to watch them play against the Chicago Bears. This caused a lot of excitement among fans and the media, who speculated about their relationship.
During subsequent interviews, the couple admitted that they had already been dating before that game. The relationship between Swift and Kelce has been recognized for attracting a fresh audience to the game and boosting football ratings since they made their relationship public.
The impact of that influence has been evident in Tokyo, where numerous fans attending Swift’s concerts have been seen wearing Kelce’s number 87 jersey from the Kansas City Chiefs, along with other NFL-inspired outfits.
Roke and Hiro, from the east-central prefecture of Saitama, were among them. The two friends who managed to get tickets to Saturday’s final show mentioned that they initially were NFL fans, but their admiration for Kelce and Swift’s relationship turned them into “Swifties.”.
Ari Novianti proudly displayed a small pouch she had crafted from a toddler-sized Chiefs’ jersey. She shared her enthusiasm for collecting various Kelce-related items from her home country, ever since her idol began dating the NFL player.
I sincerely hope that she pulls through. “She will make it,” she said, raising both her palms towards the sky.
Tricia Mears, a fan from the US, expressed her admiration for Swift’s significant impact on women and the importance of women supporting each other. She was proudly wearing a Chiefs jacket as she attended the event.
Travis Kelce is an added benefit to that. According to her, he has been incredibly supportive of her career.
Regarding Swift’s potential return home, she expressed enthusiasm, stating, “She’s coming back for something she’s passionate about, and that’s definitely worth celebrating.”
In January, Swift was spotted on the field, sharing an affectionate moment with Kelce after the Chiefs’ victory in the AFC Championship. The clip of this heartwarming interaction quickly spread on social media, leaving fans absolutely delighted.
Welch and numerous other fans had journeyed from various countries to attend the Tokyo concerts. Some had even purchased tickets for all four nights.
Swift expressed her gratitude on Wednesday to her fans, who had made the effort to travel a long way to attend her Tokyo performance. This was her first show in Tokyo since her Reputation Stadium tour in 2018. She mentioned that her week had been quite successful. Just before her trip to Japan, she received the prestigious album of the year Grammy for her latest album, “Midnights,” making her the artist with the highest number of wins in that category
Before winning the prestigious award, Swift was in the same league as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon, all of whom had previously won album of the year three times. She won prestigious awards for album of the year in 2009 with “Fearless,” 2015 with “1989,” and 2021 with “Folklore.
During the Grammys, Swift made the exciting announcement that her 11th studio album, titled “The Tortured Poets Department,” will be released in April.
During the Tokyo concert on Wednesday, she mentioned her intention to reveal the new album at the Grammys if she received any awards and in Tokyo if she didn’t win.
