Pop star Taylor Swift is at the home of the New England Patriots to cheer on her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, and the rival Kansas City Chiefs.
Swift was seen in a suite at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro during the Patriots-Chiefs game on Sunday, four days after she celebrated her 34th birthday.
The last time Swift was at Gillette Stadium, she was wrapping up a three-show set on the early stages of The Eras Tour from May 19-21. Pollstar’s year-end charts indicate that Swift’s Eras Tour is the first tour to cross the $1 billion mark.
During a radio appearance in August, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he “saw a little bit of Taylor” during Swift’s May 20 concert in Massachusetts, the second of three Eras Tour shows in Gillette she performed in pouring rain. .
“She’s tough, man. She got out there and played through it,” Belichick said.
In a 2023 interview conducted by Time magazine, Swift said she started dating Kelsey shortly after the Chiefs star admitted on a July episode of the New Heights radio show, which he does with his older brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, that she never had the chance to… to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it during her Eras Tour stop at Arrowhead Stadium earlier that month.
“Well, I was disappointed that she doesn’t speak before or after her shows, because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs she sings,” Travis Kelsey said. “So I was a little upset and couldn’t hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
Since then, Swift has appeared in seven Chiefs games in support of Kelce:
- September 24, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium
- October 1, Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Jets at MetLife Stadium
- October 12, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium
- October 22, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium
- December 3, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field
- December 10, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium
- December 17, Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium
During another radio appearance in September, Belichick said before the couple’s relationship became public that Swift would be the biggest hit of Kelce’s career.
Last month, Kelsey traveled to Argentina during Kansas City’s bye week to watch Swift perform at a concert at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires.
The Sunday game was originally scheduled to be played on “Monday Night Football,” but just over two weeks ago, the NFL announced that the game would be played at 1 p.m. on Sunday instead of 8:15 p.m. on Monday — a first for On the date on which the league chooses to feature a game outside the Monday night slot.
The Patriots entered Sunday’s game with a 3-10 record, but the Chiefs (8-5) have lost four of their last six games.
Swift is currently on a scheduled break from The Eras Tour. Its next show is scheduled for February 7 at the Tokyo Dome. She is scheduled to play in Japan until February 10. The Super Bowl is scheduled to take place on February 11, and Swift’s next performance after the Tokyo race is scheduled for February 16 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.
