Taylor Swift fans said Saturday they were thankful the Super Bowl did not affect her Japanese tour schedule as she wrapped up her final concert in Tokyo. Swift kicked off the Asian leg of her “Eras” tour this week with four concerts in Tokyo.
Her schedule sparked talk of whether Swift could make it to Las Vegas in time to cheer on boyfriend Travis Kelce when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The Japanese embassy last week released an official statement, citing Swift’s song titles, saying she could indeed arrive on time if she left immediately after her final concert in Tokyo.
Naoyuki Yanagisawa, who attended Saturday’s concert with his daughter, had initially worried that the Tokyo concerts might be cancelled. “When the Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC championship game and advanced to the Super Bowl, I was worried that this Tokyo Dome tour would be canceled. But she prioritized Tokyo over Las Vegas, so I’m grateful,” he said.
Brandon Koltes, who went to the concert with his wife, said it would be an “exciting opportunity” for Swift to go to Vegas. “She and Travis seem like they’re having fun and they’re happy, so if she makes it out there, I think there’s enough of a time zone difference that it would be a fun experience to go out and hang out with Travis and hopefully celebrate the win of Chiefs,” he said.
Earlier, online sportsbooks offered bets around Swift’s presence in the game. Novelty betting around major sporting events is nothing new, but some sportsbooks decided to have some fun with the Swift-Kelce craze after the Kansas City Chiefs punched their ticket to the Super Bowl.
One of the boldest bets that can be made is offered by FanDuel Canada, which allows people to bet on whether Kelce will propose to the pop superstar at the Super Bowl.
With just over a week to go until the reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers, FanDuel Canada’s “Will Travis Kelce pop the question?” The market is divided into 70% yes and 30% no.
