What A Wonderful Man: Travis Kelce will join Taylor Swift on the European leg of The Eras Tour in the summer.

Travis Kelce plans to support Taylor Swift on her Eras Tour dates across the globe now that he has brought the curtain down on his NFL season with Super Bowl glory.

Swift made it to 13 Kansas City Chiefs games in the NFL season, topped off on Sunday by her mad dash back from Tokyo, Japan after four straight shows to make the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

She cheered him on to victory over the San Francisco 49ers and is now heading to Australia, where she starts a tour of the country on Friday in Melbourne.

Kelce will not make it there – he has a Super Bowl parade on Wednesday in Kansas City – but he plans to make the most of his time off and support his girlfriend.

People quoted a source on Tuesday as saying: ‘They are making plans for the summer and are excited to travel together in Europe when Taylor takes her tour there.

Football is everything to him. He lives and breathes it. But he’s ready for some downtime now and to show up for Taylor the way she has for him.

‘The attention on them is definitely a lot, but Travis has done a great job deflecting and focusing on what’s important.’

After Australia – Swift heads to Sydney next week after Melbourne – there are six shows in Singapore before she has two months off.

Touring then restarts on May 9 in Paris and Swift will be on the road until mid-August, by which point Kelce will have returned to practice with the Chiefs for the new NFL season, which begins in early September.

But Swift’s tour dates could see Kelce visit iconic sporting stadiums in Europe that she will be playing – such as Wembley, the home of England’s national soccer team, and Anfield, the home of Liverpool, the Premier League team that share owners with the Boston Red Sox.
