The pop star spent NYE day at the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Cincinnati Bengals
Taylor Swift is wrapping up her massive 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri. The pop star arrived at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon before kickoff for the game between her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Cincinnati Bengals.
She has attended several of Kelce’s games since they began dating earlier this year, in between her Eras shows. Most recently, she attended the team’s Christmas day faceoff against the Las Vegas Raiders. That outing was a family affair, which included dad Scott Swift, mom Andrea Swift, and brother Austin Swift, alongside Kelce’s dad Ed Kelce. Prior to that game, she showed up in Foxboro, Massachusetts with her friends Haim for the Chiefs game against the New England Patriots. Earlier this month, announcer Tony Romo accidentally referred to Swift as Kelce’s wife during the Chiefs-Bills game.
On Sunday, Swift showed up to the stadium dressed in all black underneath a letterman-styled Chiefs jacket (which fans have pointed out looks similar to one that her boyfriend Kelce has worn) on a golf cart sans a celebrity entourage.
The event caps off a monumental year for the pop star, including Swift being named Time’s Person of the Year. In the accompanying article, she reflected on some of the difficult moments she had to overcome throughout her career — including sparring with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in 2016, and her master recordings being sold to Scooter Braun, which ultimately led to her (Taylor’s Version) re-recordings of her catalog pre-Lover. She has now re-recorded and re-released all of her albums for the masters she did not own, except 2017’s Reputation and 2006’s Taylor Swift.
Swift’s Eras Tour also became the highest-grossing concert tour of all time, and the tour also became the first ever to gross at least $1 billion. Swift bests Elton John’s years-long Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour for the top spot.
