Taylor Swift’s groundbreaking ‘Eras Tour’ is back underway shortly as she returns to pop music in Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, however she arrived without Travis Kelce.
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end was absent as she touched down in the South American city and was duly mobbed by the press and paparazzi, having to settle for her publicist as company instead.
Amidst the cameras, the ‘Blank Space’ singer took cover behind an umbrella and was swiftly escorted to an SUV to head off to wherever she will be based as she prepares to resume the popular tour.
It’s unclear if Kelce will join her for the concert, despite his NFL side having a week off. As a highly competitive athlete, the 34-year-old has always liked to avoid plans in bye weeks so that he can respond to anything his football career might throw at him.
Why is Kelce going to possibly skip Argentina?
The 34-year-old tight end will get a week off before heading into a Kelce family showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles, who his brother plays for as a center, for Week 11.
Kelce clearly knows what the Eagles can do, after facing them in 2023’s Super Bowl, and will look to keep his body in prime condition against the side that has only been defeated once in nine outings this season.
“[I] never like to plan things [on bye weeks],” Kelce said on his New Heights podcast. “You just don’t know how healthy you’re going to be or how you’re going to feel whether you’re winning or losing,”
“I definitely got the future in mind and got to get this body right. I’m not trying to go and f-king be out and about if we’re out here losing.”
After a shocking defeat to the lowly Denver Broncos in week eight, the Chiefs wasted no time in hitting back their NFL rivals on November 5. They defeated the Miami Dolphins 21-14 at the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas despite dropping 14 points in the third quarter in a true test of the side’s mettle, with Kelce thinking they were lucky to get the win.
His comments come after media claimed he will head 5598 miles south to be with his girlfriend as she embarks on her latest music venture.
“Travis is planning to be there to spend time with her,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight. “Travis and Taylor are very serious about their careers, and the two bond over that and want to show support for each other whenever they can.”
