Taylor Swift arrived at Allegiant Stadium two hours before the Super Bowl, after completing her epic run from Tokyo to the Super Bowl.
The pop superstar was dressed all in black with a red jacket over her shoulder, completing a wild 24-hour race from her Eras Tour show in Japan to Las Vegas.
She arrived at the stadium with her mother Andrea Swift, Blake Lively, Ice Spice and her close friend and stylist Ashley Avignone.
Also there were his mother Andrea and father Scott, the latter dressed head-to-toe in Chiefs gear despite his history as a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
CBS cameras captured his arrival at the stadium, a few minutes after landing at Harry Reid Airport.
Shortly after, she was seen hanging out with Jason and Kylie Kelce, in front of everyone watching Travis and the Chiefs play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
The pop megastar was photographed getting off her plane in Sin City shortly before 1pm, after a flight from Los Angeles that lasted less than 40 minutes.
The 34-year-old was then taken in a convoy of blacked-out SUVs to Allegiant Stadium, where Super Bowl LVIII will be held.
Her father Scott joined her in the front seat of the car and was given a three-car police escort as she made her way through the packed city to the football stadium.
Swift’s arrival concludes an odyssey that began in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday night, with the singer rushing to the airport at approximately 9:30 p.m. local time.
She then boarded a plane (callsign ‘The Football Era’) that took her seven hours to Los Angeles, where she was photographed upon disembarking at LAX.
After a night at her palatial Beverly Hills home, Swift was back on the move: She boarded her own jet in Burbank just before 12 p.m. local time.
Just across town in Las Vegas, almost exactly the same time Taylor landed, Travis was seen arriving at the stadium for the game.
The Kansas City Chiefs star wore a sparkly all-black ensemble, fitting for such a big occasion, as he and his teammates headed to Allegiant Stadium.
Meanwhile, on Saturday night, Jason and Kylie Kelce were seen celebrating a big win at The Cosmopolitan Hotel casino on Saturday night.
Travis’ mother, Donna, also attended Super Bowl LVIII and was captured by DailyMail.com soaking up some of the pre-game atmosphere on Sunday morning.
Kelce is seeking his third Super Bowl win in five years tonight, and the desire to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy again is clearly stronger than ever.
According to NFL reporter Albert Breer, the Chiefs tight end left his teammates in tears with a moving speech at the Kansas City team hotel the night before the game.
He addressed the team along with head coach Andy Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and defensive tackle Chris Jones.
But it was Travis’ speech that had the biggest impact, bringing Chiefs stars to tears as they contemplated a third Super Bowl in five years this weekend.
One coach is even quoted as saying, “Not even close.” Best talk/speech I’ve ever heard.’
