The United States is in a collective sigh of relief as Taylor Swift, one of the nation’s biggest pop icons, has confirmed her attendance at the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas this coming Sunday evening. The Super Bowl event, which will take place at 12:30 a.m. French time, has been a topic of speculation regarding Swift’s attendance due to her hectic schedule. The renowned singer has been the talk of the NFL season after she publicly announced her relationship with Travis Kelce, a player from the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are set to go up against the San Francisco 49ers in the national championship finals. Although Swift’s presence at the Super Bowl was uncertain due to a concert she was scheduled to perform in Tokyo on Saturday evening, fans can now look forward to seeing her at the world event.
In light of this, American news outlets have been actively tracking Swift’s journey from Tokyo to Las Vegas. According to TMZ, after wrapping up her performance, Swift boarded her private jet and arrived in Los Angeles on Saturday evening. The time difference worked in her favor, allowing her to make the journey without any major delays.
Swift’s confirmed presence at the Super Bowl is of significant importance, as her influence has greatly boosted the popularity of American football this season. The singer, who enjoys a massive following of 280 million subscribers on Instagram, has played a pivotal role in boosting the economy and popularity of the sport. Her influence was particularly felt during the AFC Conference final between the Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens, which garnered more than 55 million viewers on January 28, setting a new record. In addition to attracting massive audiences, Swift’s involvement with the NFL has also helped the league reach a new demographic, particularly younger and female fans, via her community of fans, known as “Swifties”.
After her flight, Swift returned to her home in Beverly Hills. The singer, who was named Time magazine’s 2023 personality of the year, is expected to make the short one-hour trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas during the day on Sunday, in time for the Super Bowl.
