Travis Kelce seen waving, high-fiving fans on first night of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in Sydney

Travis Kelce finally filled the blank space that’s been missing on the Australian leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end attended the pop superstar’s concert in Sydney Friday, two days after flying overseas on a private jet in order to make it to the show.

The three-time Super Bowl champ rocked a relaxed blue ensemble for the occasion, consisting of a patterned blue T-shirt with shorts to match.

He completed his casual look with a pair of white sneakers.

Kelce was joined by his pal Ross Travis, who rocked an all-yellow fit for Swift’s show.

Elsewhere, Katy Perry was spotted in the VIP tent with singer Rita Ora in a fan-filmed video circulating on social media.

The last time the football player went to an Eras Tour concert, Swift changed the lyrics to “Karma” to commemorate her boyfriend.

“Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me,” she sang at the November 2023 show in Buenos Aires, leaving Kelce awestruck over the sweet gesture.

It is unclear whether the NFL star will stay for the remainder of the Sydney concerts or jet back to the US.

However, ever since Kelce landed in Sydney at 9 a.m. Thursday — which was 5 p.m. Wednesday on the East Coast — he and Swift have made the most of their time together Down Under.

The couple, who has been dating since last summer, took a trip to the local zoo, where they were seen getting up close and personal with Australian wildlife, including hand-feeing koalas and kangaroos.

Kelce and Swift, both 34, were also photographed by local news outlets walking around the park while holding hands. They both appeared in the images dressed in casual and comfortable attire.

The “All Too Well” singer had visited Sydney Zoo before her beau arrived in town, so it seems she wanted the pro athlete to experience the home to more than 4,000 animals for himself.

Following their wholesome outing, Kelce was seen back at Swift’s $25,000-per-night presidential suite at the five-star Crown Sydney hotel, where he soaked up the local views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The “Wildest Dreams” singer, for her part, has been in Australia for more than a week.

She flew down shortly after celebrating Kelce and the Chiefs’ 2024 Super Bowl win against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas on Feb. 11.

However, the celebration took a tragic turn when gunmen claimed the life of one person and left 22 others injured.

Kelce has since expressed his heartache over the tragedy and donated $100,000 to two of the young survivors, while Swift contributed $100,000 to the relatives of the woman who died.

The pair’s reunion in Australia is the first time they have seen each other since Super Bowl weekend, and it appears the have been enjoying getting to spend quality time together again.
