Just as we all suspected, Super Bowl LVIII is less about the teams playing and more about where Taylor Swift will be by the time the game kicks off.
Taylor Swift has a concert in Tokyo less than 24 hours before the Super Bowl on Feb. 11th.
Ahead of the Chiefs’ win over the Ravens in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, it was reported that the 12-time Grammy winner would watch her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, play in Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas despite performing in Japan the night before.
Swift’s concert at the Tokyo Dome on Feb. 10 is scheduled for 6 p.m. local time and shows on her tour last about 4 hours. With the 17-hour time difference between Tokyo and Las Vegas, that means it will be about 1 a.m. Vegas time when she takes the stage in Tokyo.
Now that the Chiefs are playing in the Super Bowl for a second straight season, it’s time for Swift to figure out how she’s going to get there.
It is now being reported that Swift is slated to be on a plane and headed to Vegas as soon as her final show ends.
“It’s a brutal flight, but she’ll get on her plane right after the concert,” a source told Page Six.
Sports business reporter Darren Rovell pointed out that the time difference is a huge help.
Swift has already attended 12 Kansas City games this season, including all three postseason contests.
The team has won nine of the 12 games at which she’s been in attendance.
