Japan Embassy acknowledged the worry of Swifties about the pop star's travel from Japan to the US to support her boyfriend Travis in the Super Bowl.
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's romance has been captivating the attention of their fans for a while now. The NFL star and the Grammy-winning songstress have been making appearances at each other's events to show support and the media hasn't failed to capture those wholesome moments. But Swift is in the middle of her highly successful Eras World Tour since 2023 and fans are worried that Swift might not make it in time to show support to her boyfriend in the Super Bowl. But fans don't need to worry about Swift and Kelce's reunion anymore.
The Japan Embassy has delivered a relieving message to Swifties that their favorite artist will definitely make it back to the U.S. on time and they are taking full responsibility for it. The Embassy of Japan released a statement on X (previously Twitter) that "anyone concerned about it can be fearless." From February 7th to 10th, Swift is scheduled to perform at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, which puts her in a tight timeframe before the Super Bowl event starts. Adding to the fans' concerns, Swift has to board a long-haul flight and make it across the world to attend the NFL's championship game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11.

“Despite the 12-hour flight and 17-hour time difference, the Embassy can confidently 'Speak Now' to say that if she departs Tokyo in the evening after her concert, she should comfortably arrive in Las Vagas before the Super Bowl begins,” the Japanese Embassy wrote in their statement on February 2, making it quirky with the titles of the pop star's songs. “We know that many people in Japan are excited to experience Swift’s Eras Tour, so we wanted to confirm that anyone concerned can be 'Fearless' in knowing that this talented performer can wow Japanese audiences and still make it to Las Vegas to support the Chiefs when they take the field for the Super Bowl wearing 'Red'.”
While many fans would flock to the Allegiant Stadium to catch Kansas City Chief's tight end player Kelce in action against San Francisco's 49ers, many others would be interested in all the moments off the field and hopefully catch Swift at the VIP boxes cheering for Kelce. Ever since making her public appearances with Kelce, Swift has been a regular at Kansas City Chiefs games. According to Billboard, on July 8 last year, the football star and the singer first sparked dating rumors when he was spotted at Swift’s Eras Tour stop at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium in July, marking the first public linking between the two.
“I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” Kelce said during an episode of the "New Heights" podcast with his brother, Jason. “So I was a little hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.” He went on to explain that the bracelet he wanted to give her had his phone number on it. “She doesn’t meet anybody, or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personally,” he added about his first failed attempt at wooing Swift.
The pop superstar opened up about when her romance with Kelce began for TIME Magazine. “This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell. We started hanging out right after that,” she shared, referring to the revelation on his podcast. “By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple,” she revealed. “I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game. We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
