Taylor Swift ‘shields’ behind a curtain as an SUV whisks her away from LAX after the popstar touched down to a police and media frenzy following mad nine-hour dash from Tokyo to make it to the Super Bowl

She’s back! Taylor Swift has landed in LA with exactly 24 hours to spare before boyfriend Travis Kelce takes to the field for the Chiefs clash with the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

Photos show the star singer’s plane touching down at LAX following an eight-hour flight from Tokyo bearing the call sign ‘The Football Era’ that was tracked by over 32,000 people.

A fleet of SUVs was pulled up next to the hangar at the airport’s private terminal to whisk the 34-year-old away.

 

The singer appeared to shield herself from the circus of fans and media who had gathered at the airport for her arrival.

There was an unprecedented police presence at the terminal with several police vehicles parked outside as Swift’s motorcade of SUVs escorted her away from the airport.

Taylor Swift lands at LAX following show in Tokyo ahead of Super Bowl

The pop superstar was zipped off to her Los Angeles home where she hunkered down for the night. She is expected to complete the remaining 300 miles of her journey to Las Vegas for the big game Sunday morning.

Despite leaving Japan at 9.30pm Saturday night, the music megastar arrived in LA earlier than when she left – touching down at 3.35pm on Saturday afternoon thanks to the time difference.

Swift made the dash back from Japan following a busy week that took in four sold out performances at the Tokyo Dome – the final one on Saturday night.

The pop billionaire is also fresh from winning a record-breaking fourth ‘album of the year’ Grammy – handed out at a glitzy ceremony in LA while Kelce, 34, was arriving in Las Vegas ahead of the Super Bowl.

While Swift was in Japan, the musclebound 34-year-old has been training hard and brushed off questions about proposing to the singer after the game – telling reporters that he is concentrating on getting ‘this ring’ [the Super Bowl winner’s ring].

He also joked with brother Jason, 36, on their New Heights podcast about how expensive being in Vegas is, saying: ‘I’m not really doing much different other than just counting how much money I’m spending on this damn Super Bowl for family and friends to come.’

Kelce’s parents have already arrived in Las Vegas and are staying at the Strip’s glitzy Resort World hotel, with Donna, 71, seen there Thursday morning.

Jason, meanwhile, has checked into the Aria and was photographed playing blackjack in the casino and at a U2 gig at the Sphere. On Friday, he took wife Kylie, 31, to watch Adele at the Cosmopolitan where he was heard shouting ‘Eagles!’ during a break in the show.

The British singer quipped back: ‘What did you say? You sound drunk and like a football fan!’

Both the Swift and Kelce families are expected in Vegas on game day, with reports saying Kelce has splashed out on a $1m suite.

Kelce was last seen with his megastar girlfriend in Baltimore two weeks ago with the pair making headlines due to a very public display of affection following the Kansas City Chiefs triumph over the Baltimore Ravens.

Swift has attended multiple Chiefs games since going public with Kelce in September and was seen cheering her man on during the game, new pal Brittany Mahomes at her side.

Jason was also at the game to roar him on along with Kylie and mom Donna and dad Ed, 72.

After the game, Swift boarded a private jet bound for California while Kelce returned to Missouri with the Chiefs and was photographed driving near his 17,000sqft mega-mansion last week.

Despite her wild travel schedule, Swift already has more planned and is due in Melbourne on 16th – giving her just five days to celebrate or commiserate with Kelce.

According to data compiled by Planet7casino.com, the 34-year-old’s tour was the hottest ticket of 2023, with an extraordinary 659,333 people per month searching Google for information about her tour dates.

Kelce, who will have time to spare once the football season ends, has been among the attendees at previous gigs and, in November, traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to see her perform during the NFL’s mid-season break.

The loved-up pair have become increasingly serious since getting together in August, with Kelce describing their relationship as ‘a beautiful thing’ during an interview.

Asked about Swift by ESPN’s Pat McAfee, the Chief’s No.87 said the pair had known each other for a month before her first appearance at a game in September.

Taylor Swift appears to say ‘I love you’ to Kelce after Chiefs win

He said: ‘We had known each other for close to a month up to that point. It wasn’t just out of the blue, ”Hey, come to the game.”’

Kelce added: ‘It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it. And hopefully everybody realizes we’re two people in a relationship supporting each other and having fun with it. It’s nothing more than that.

‘How much the world wants to paint the picture and make us the enemy, we just have fun with it. And we just have fun with it. We just enjoy every single bit of it.

‘Sure enough, I love it when Taylor comes and supports me and enjoys the game with the fam and friends. It’s been a wonderful year, man.’

Swift was also a popular topic on Kelce’s own New Heights podcast this week, with his brother Jason joking that the singer had come along at just the right time.

‘Shout out to the newest member of the Chiefs Kingdom, Swift, who has officially reached the Super Bowl in her rookie year,’ the Eagles center quipped.

Kelce then added with a laugh: ‘Shout out to Tay. Thanks for joining the team.’
