Taylor Swift has arrived at Allegiant Stadium two hours ahead of the Super Bowl, after completing her epic dash from Tokyo to the Super Bowl.
The pop superstar was dressed all in black with a red jacket dtextd over her shoulder, completing a wild 24-hour dash from her Eras Tour show in Japan, all the way to Las Vegas.
She arrived to the stadium alongside her mom Andrea Swift, Blake Lively, Ice Spice, and her close friend and stylist Ashley Avignone.
CBS cameras captured her arrival at the stadium, just minutes after she had touched down at Harry Reid Airport.
Shortly after, she was seen reuniting with Jason and Kylie Kelce, ahead of them all watching Travis and the Chiefs play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
The pop megastar was photographed getting off her plane in Sin City shortly before 1pm – after a flight from LA that lasted less than 40 minutes.
The 34-year-old was then whisked away in a convoy of blacked out SUVs headed for Allegiant Stadium where Super Bowl LVIII will be held.
She was joined in the front seat of the car by her dad Scott, and given a police escort of three cars as she weaved through the packed city to the football stadium.
Swift’s arrival concludes an odyssey that started in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday night, with the singer making a dash to the airport at approximately 9.30pm local time.
She then boarded a jet – callsign ‘The Football Era’ – that flew her seven hours to Los Angeles where she was photographed disembarking at LAX.
After a night at her palatial Beverly Hills home, Swift was back on the move – boarding her own jet at Burbank just before 12pm local time.
Just across town in Vegas – at almost exactly the same time Taylor touched down – Travis was spotted arriving at the stadium for the game.
The Kansas City Chiefs star wore an all-black, sparkly outfit fit for an occasion as big as this as he and his teammates headed into Allegiant Stadium.
On Saturday night, meanwhile, Jason and Kylie Kelce were seen celebrating a big win at The Cosmopolitan Hotel casino on Saturday night.
Travis’ mom, Donna, is also in attendance at Super Bowl LVIII and was captured by DailyMail.com soaking up some of the pregame atmosphere on Sunday morning.
Kelce is seeking his third Super Bowl triumph in five years this evening, and the desire to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy again is clearly as strong as ever.
According to NFL reporter Albert Breer, the Chiefs tight end left his teammates in tears with a rousing speech at Kansas City’s team hotel the night before the game.
He addressed the team along with head coach Andy Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and defensive tackle Chris Jones.
But it was Travis’ speech which made the biggest impact, moving Chiefs stars to tears as they eye a third Super Bowl in five years this weekend.
One coach is even quoted as saying: ‘Not even close. The best talk/speech I’ve ever heard.’
