Swift announced the night’s musical guest, Ice Spice, which sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Speculation swirled that the couple might be attending the New York Jets game on Sunday afternoon – where Kelce’s brother, Jason, will be playing for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The outing came shortly after Us Weekly reported that Swift, who is finishing her jam-packed Eras tour, and Kelce, who is striving for another Super Bowl ring, are ‘understanding of each other’s schedules.’

Those close to the couple told the outlet that this understanding makes them a ‘good match.’
‘It’s still so new, but they really like each other,’ an insider added, as the couple went public just a few weeks ago.
‘They’re supportive of each other and they don’t have to be by each other’s side all the time and that feels comfortable.
‘They plan to carve out moments to spend together to get to know each other better.’
The couple first went public in September 2023 and confirmed the relationship after Swift attended several of Kelce’s games.
Swift spent time with the athlete’s parents, Donna and Ed, during his most recent game on Thursday.
The trio watched the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.

Then, a mystery passenger – sporting a pair of white sneakers – was seen boarding Taylor’s private jet before it took off from Kansas City, igniting rumors that Travis had joined her.
Thursday marked her third visit to a Kansas City Chiefs game this season, and both she and Ed sported red attire in support of Travis and his team.
The source for US Weekly said there will be more football games in the future for Taylor, although it’s unlikely she will be able to catch the entire remaining schedule.

‘Taylor doesn’t want to be a distraction to Travis,’ the insider explained.
‘She knows it’s not easy when she shows up to his games. It’s a spectacle. She wants to support him and strike a balance while, at the same time, not be distracting to the team.’
It’s not clear exactly when the two began seeing each other in person, but Travis had revealed on his New Heights podcast in July that he had hoped to introduce himself to Taylor when he attended one of her Eras Tour stops.
‘I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings, so I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,’ he said.
Taylor amped up the budding courtship at last Sunday’s game when she arrived alone — aside from her usual bodyguards — to cheer on Travis from a box.
However, the sources explained to the outlet that the Lavender Haze singer’s earlier meetings with the NFL star were in a ‘very private setting’ so as to not attract attention.
It was originally rumored that that Swift is moving toward a more open relationship with Travis, while other outlets dished that the two are not ‘officially’ dating.
