Japanese Embassy Confirms Taylor Swift Can Make Super Bowl After Tokyo Concert

TOKYO, Feb 04 (News On Japan) - In an unusual move, the Japanese Embassy in the United States has issued a statement confirming that popular singer Taylor Swift will be able to attend the Super Bowl in Las Vegas the day after her concert in Tokyo.

The Super Bowl, the NFL's championship game, is set to take place in Las Vegas on the 11th, with Taylor Swift's boyfriend, Travis Kelce, playing for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Japanese Embassy in the U.S. took to X (formerly Twitter) to state, "Considering the 12-hour flight and the 17-hour time difference, we are confident that Ms. Swift can depart Tokyo after her concert on the 10th and arrive in Las Vegas well before the Super Bowl starts."

Swift has frequently been seen supporting Kelce throughout the season. However, with concerts scheduled at the Tokyo Dome from the 7th to the 10th, there had been speculation in the American media about whether she would make it to the Super Bowl in time.

The embassy's comment notably emphasized song titles from Swift's discography, such as "Speak Now," "Fearless," and "Red," in bold, underscoring that "there is no need to worry whether the talented performer will be able to thrill her audience in Japan and then support her team in Las Vegas."
