Japan says pop star Taylor Swift will perform in Tokyo before heading to the US for the Super Bowl, the NFL season finale, where her boyfriend will be on the field.
Swift's relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce was talked about as much as those on the field this season in American football, the most popular sport in the US. Swift, who never misses the Chiefs' home games, was expected to be in Las Vegas to support the team in the Super Bowl. However, Swift's concert on February 10 worried fans that she would miss the game on February 11.
Following the discussions that started on social media, the Embassy of Japan in Washington made a statement on the issue and stated that Swift would make it to the match.
"Despite the 12-hour flight and 17-hour time difference, if Swift leaves Tokyo after her last concert, she could very easily be in Las Vegas before the Super Bowl starts," the embassy said in a statement.
"We know that many people in Japan are excited to experience Taylor Swift's Eras tour. We would like to tell anyone who is concerned to be fearless and let them know that this talented performer will be able to make it to Las Vegas to impress the Japanese audience and support the Chiefs in red."
The use of terms such as "red" and "fearless" in the statement in reference to Swift's album titles drew attention.
