Taylor Swift arrives at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas
Taylor Swift has arrived at the 2024 Super Bowl game to support her Kansas City Chiefs boyfriend Travis Kelce.
The US megastar travelled from Japan, where she played four consecutive shows at the Tokyo Dome as part of her Eras Tour, to the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, to watch the Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Swift arrived at the stadium wearing an all-black outfit with a red jacket draped over her shoulder, alongside actress Blake Lively, rapper Ice Spice, and her mother Andrea Swift.

Kelce and the Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes, are appearing in their fourth Super Bowl in five years and are looking to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since Tom Brady’s New England Patriots in 2005.
Swift’s romance with Kelce has been credited with generating greater global interest in the National Football League (NFL), particularly from women.
Last month photographs of the couple kissing went viral as Swift celebrated on the field after the Chiefs triumphed over the Baltimore Ravens, defeating the team 17-10 at the MT Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
On Sunday, R&B star Usher will headline the coveted half-time slot.
The eight-time Grammy winner said he will be roller skating during the show, and hinted that he will be sharing the stage with “special guests” with whom he has collaborated before.
Fans have speculated on names including Alicia Keys, Lil Jon, Ludacris, Beyonce and Justin Bieber.
Usher said he has woven “two special things” into his slot which speak to “culture, quality and creativity”.
The 45-year-old also said that a camera crew had been documenting the
