“Traylor” is officially international. Since the football star’s anticipated arrival in South America, the world’s been waiting to learn whether Travis Kelce would attend Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in Argentina after hinting at his travels earlier this week.
While speaking with his brother, Jason, on their joint podcast “New Heights”, Kelce dropped the easter egg that he might go somewhere “close to the equator” soon. “My skin’s getting real pale. I gotta go somewhere sunny,” he teased. While the tight-end’s weekends are usually football-filled, the Kansas City Chiefs are enjoying their bye week this week (a seven-day period where the team doesn’t have any games).
Swift arrived in Argentina solo and kicked off her first Buenos Aires show at the Estadio River Plate without Kelce in attendance. While the superstar performed “Labyrinth” and declared in song that she was “falling in love again,” Kelce attended his teammate Patrick Mahomes’ third annual Mahomies Foundation Gala. So, did Kelce make it to the Argentine capital after all?
Is Travis Kelce with Taylor Swift in Argentina?
Is Travis Kelce with Taylor Swift in Argentina? The answer is yes! After the charity gala, Kelce flew 11 hours overnight to make Swift’s second Eras Tour show on November 10, only for the performance to get postponed to Sunday because of “truly chaotic” weather, Swift wrote via Instagram stories.
“I love a rain show but I’m never going to endanger my fans or my fellow performers and crew,” the pop star penned just hours before the concert was set to begin. “We’ve rescheduled tonight’s Buenos Aires show for Sunday due to the weather being so truly chaotic it would be unsafe to try and put on this concert. Good news is I get to stay in Argentina later!”
Instead, Hollywood’s biggest couple grabbed dinner last night in a private room at Elena, a restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Buenos Aires, according to People. Swift’s dad, Scott Kingsley Swift, also joined the pair for the outing. A source told the site that the lovebirds “looked so cute on their low-key date night” and that “they also left holding hands.” Additionally, “the crowd in the restaurant briefly cheered as they walked out” and that “Travis was beaming.”
Onlookers captured this TikTok video of Swift, Kelce and Scott leaving the resturant on Friday night, with Swift and Kelce visibly holding hands as the crowd cheered.
Don’t worry Swifties, tonight’s Eras Tour performance is still on as planned. With Kelce in attendance, it’ll mark the first time the professional athlete will be at the show as her boyfriend (so it’s a pretty big deal). Swift was seen cheering in the stands at multiple Chiefs games for Kelce this season, so Swifties are anxious to see Kelce return the support.
Kelce first saw Swift in concert when she visited Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City in July 2023. It was also when he tried to give her a friendship bracelet with his number on it but failed. “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, so I was a little butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,” he admitted at the time. Look how far they’ve come since then!
Kelce wouldn’t be the first of Swift’s recent love interests to see her on tour. The 1975’s lead singer Matty Healy, who was Swift’s rumored beau from May to June of this year, joined Phoebe Bridgers on stage when she opened for the Eras Tour. The singer’s former longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn also attended the first night of the Reputation Tour back in 2018.
