After the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their ticket to the Super Bowl with their AFC Championship victory against the Baltimore Ravens, Taylor Swift fans had one burning question: Will the pop superstar make it to the Super Bowl to support her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce?
Now, the Embassy of Japan in the U.S. has weighed in on the big debate.
"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 Vegas before the Super Bowl begins," the embassy said in a statement shared on X, formerly known as Twitter.
"We know that many people in Japan are excited to experience Taylor 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," the embassy added, sprinkling their statement with two more references to Swift's album titles.
Swift was among those celebrating the Chiefs' 17-10 victory on Jan. 28.
Swift, in Chiefs red and a diamond friendship bracelet, was all smiles on the field after the game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, greeting Travis Kelce, in a celebratory "AFC Champions, Chiefs Are All In" T-shirt, with hugs and a kiss.
"What's up, sweetie?" Kelce said to Swift when they met on the field.
Swift could then be heard telling Kelce, "I've never seen anything like that in my life," as they embraced.
Can Taylor Swift make it to the 2024 Super Bowl from Tokyo?
All week, fans have been wondering if Swift, who is currently on the international leg of her "Eras Tour," will be able to attend the Super Bowl, which will be held in Las Vegas on Feb. 11.
In Las Vegas, the Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers, who beat the Detroit Lions 34-31, also on Jan. 28 in the NFC Championship game.
On Feb. 10, the mega pop star is scheduled to perform in Tokyo, wrapping up a four-night series at the Tokyo Dome.
With Tokyo 17 hours ahead of Las Vegas, where the Super Bowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium, the time difference will work in Swift's favor.
If Swift finishes her Tokyo show at about 11 p.m. local time, which is around 6 a.m. in Las Vegas, she can fly back to the U.S. in about 13 hours and make it in time before the game kicks off, barring any travel issues.
Swift's next Eras Tour stop after the Super Bowl will be in Australia on Feb. 16 when she begins a three-night residency at Melbourne Cricket Grounds in Melbourne.
