It wouldn’t be 2024 if the earth, sun and moon weren’t revolving around the billion-dollar baroness, a.k.a. Taylor Swift.
With the Kansas City Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl, fans, leagues and aviation experts are dissecting whether or not Taylor Swift will be in attendance with her record-setting “Eras Tour” now in international waters. The singer, who recently appeared at the Chief’s win during the AFC championship game win over the Baltimore Ravens, continues the “Eras Tour” (which earned over a billion dollars last year) with a four-night run at the Tokyo Dome which goes until Saturday night (Feb. 10), the day before the Super Bowl.
The “Eras Tour: has become something of a global fixation, with both the NFL and world leaders trying to capitalize on Swift’s fame. After she made a single Instagram post last year, 35,000 fans registered to vote, according to the New York Times. While she endorsed Biden in 2020, his campaign is hoping to again tap into her influence for 2024, with The Times claiming his campaign strategy has suggested he attend a concert on the “Eras Tour” in order to garner more favor with her fans.
Never before has a tour hit a billion dollars (let alone in a single calendar year). World leaders including Chilean President Gabriel Boric, Budapest mayor Gergely Karácsony and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have publicly expressed their desire to have “Eras” come to their country. This while The Times wrote that California Governor Gavin Newsom requested Swift become more involved in the 2024 election following a September primary debate.
The NFL is clearly tapping into Swift’s power via her relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce taking the media and Swifties by storm. With Swift attending more NFL games between “Eras Tour” stops (in South America last November), with viewership for games increasing by 7%, according to the Wallstreet Journal.
With Tokyo 17 hours ahead of Las Vegas, aviation experts have concluded that Swift can indeed safely make it to Allegiant Stadium on Saturday, a full day before the big game on the 10th.
Following Super Bowl Sunday, Swift heads to the land down under for the Australian leg of her tour, which kicks off with three dates at Melbourne Cricket Grounds in Melbourne Australia, on Feb. 17. She’ll perform four dates in Sydney from Feb. 23-26, with “Eras” then landing in Singapore for six dates taking place March 2-9. Following that, Swift will take a break before starting the “Eras” European leg this summer.
