Taylor Swift Arrives at Super Bowl LVIII With Ice Spice to Support Travis Kelce, KC Chiefs

The moment the Chiefs scored a victory over the Baltimore Ravens and punched their ticket to Super Bowl LVIII, the Taylor Swift theories began. Would she be at the game? Was it even possible to journey from Tokyo all the way to Las Vegas in such a short window of time? Well, the “Karma” singer clearly pulled out all the stops to make it happen, because she just arrived at Allegiant Stadium!

She stepped into the stadium in the company of fellow musician Ice Spice, as well as actress Blake Lively.

Dressed head to toe in black, Taylor Swift’s outfit is extremely similar to her beau Travis Kelce’s game day suit. Rather than her usual 87 gear to match Kelce’s jersey number, however, the singer’s Chiefs jacket sports the number 60.

Taylor Swift Made It to Vegas With Just Hours to Spare Ahead of Super Bowl LVIII

With the 17-hour time difference between Tokyo and Vegas, it was 1 am in Sin City when Taylor Swift took the stage in Tokyo. The moment her performance ended, the mad dash to Vegas began, beginning with takeoff from Haneda Airport. With the international date line on her side, Swift landed on the West Coast with about 24 hours to spare before kickoff.

Just before 6 pm PT Saturday, Taylor Swift touched down in Los Angeles after a 12-hour flight aboard her private jet. It’s unclear why she chose to fly into LA instead of her final destination of Vegas. Swift does have a residence in LA, however, so perhaps the pop icon wanted a few hours’ sleep in her own bed after a hectic few days in Japan.

Regardless, Swift’s many followers speculate that she traveled the rest of the way to Allegiant Stadium by car.

“Taylor Swift is in Las Vegas,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport confirmed while reporting on the Super Bowl. “She has made it. Taylor Swift is here. She has flown from Tokyo, where she had a concert, to LAX, to Vegas. She is in the city and is expected to be at the game at a suite to be determined. That’s all I have to say about that. I’ll never report bigger news today.”
