Why Travis Kelce Didn’t Fly Back to Europe for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Shows in Lisbon



Despite reports that Travis Kelce would return to Europe to meet Taylor Swift in Portugal for her Eras Tour shows before taking her to the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, Kelce chose to remain in the U.S. He did travel a bit though, moving from Kansas City, Missouri to Texas.

The NFL player was photographed with teammate Patrick Mahomes at the Dallas Mavericks vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball game in Dallas on Sunday, May 26. Afterward, he was seen getting dinner with friends at the Mediterranean restaurant Saaya.

Swift spent her Sunday and Monday out of the spotlight. On Sunday, she posted an Instagram thanking the fans who watched her Friday and Saturday performances in Lisbon. She wrote, “It’s official, I left my 🤍 in Lisbon. My first time in Portugal and you all made me feel like I was right at home. I’ll seriously never forget the way you treated us, the overwhelming love and passion and hands in the air and dancing and how you screamed every lyric!! Muito obrigada 🇵🇹”

Swift will play two shows in Madrid, Spain, tomorrow and Thursday. On Sunday and Monday, she’ll perform in Lyon, France.

So when will Kelce meet up with her again? The couple hasn’t publicly shared their plans, but Kelce will be in Cannes, France, on June 20 to record an episode of his and Jason Kelce’s podcast, New Heights, during the Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity, Page Six reported last week. He could easily join Swift for her U.K. shows before or after that work commitment.

Kelce will remain in the off-season until July 23, when the Chiefs’ training camp will begin. Us Weekly reported on May 23 that Kelce finished filming his role for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming series Grotesquerie. He has no other film or TV projects keeping him in the U.S. that he has announced.

A source told Us Weekly on Thursday that Kelce does plan to go to Europe regularly to be with Swift. (He returned to the U.S. after the couple’s vacation in Lake Como, Italy in mid-May, skipping Swift’s Stockholm shows, which ran from May 17–19. On May 18, he was photographed in Kansas City hosting his music festival, Kelce Jam.)

“He wants to support her as much as he can while he can, so he’s going to [go] back and forth from the U.S. to Europe while he has the time,” the source explained. The couple has had a “wonderful time in Europe so far,” the insider added.
