Will Taylor Swift Be At Super Bowl LVIII?
I hit the ground running each night, I hit the Sunday matinée… (All's fair in love and football.)
Taylor Swift is many things these days: An international music superstar, a 14-time Grammy winner, and a noted fan of the Kansas City Chiefs. But this weekend, she’ll be going through something we can all relate to—racing to catch her flight in time.
Swift has come to all three Chiefs playoff games in support of Travis Kelce and is widely expected to be at Super Bowl LVIII, where the Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers, this Sunday. But on Saturday, Swift will also be wrapping up a four-night residency at the Tokyo Dome in Japan as part of The Eras Tour.
Will Taylor Swift make it to Las Vegas in time from Tokyo? Is a Swiftie out there tracking flight numbers and cross-referencing them with seasonal weather charts for the Pacific Ocean? CableTV.com investigated, and here’s what we found out about Taylor Swift and the Super Bowl.
Saturday, February 10, 6:00 p.m. JST: Taylor Swift performs at Tokyo Dome
Swift is kicking off the second leg of The Eras Tour with a four-show residency at the Tokyo Dome, which is in the heart of downtown Tokyo and holds up to 55,000 concertgoers. As of this writing, Swift doesn’t have an opening act for Saturday’s show, which will follow the below schedule:
- Doors open: 4:00 p.m. JST
- Show starts: 6:00 p.m. JST
The Eras Tour typically runs for around three hours and 15 minutes and features around a 45-song setlist. Assuming the show goes to plan, we estimate that she’ll wrap up her final Tokyo Dome show around 10:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 10, around 11:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. JST: Taylor Swift heads to Haneda International Airport
Once she’s done with her post-show to-dos (stretches? Scrolling TikTok?), Swift will likely head to Haneda International Airport, which is a quick 30-minute drive from the Tokyo Dome.
Sunday, Feb. 11 (12:00 a.m. JST): Taylor Swift departs Tokyo
Saturday, Feb. 10 (7:30 p.m. PDT): Taylor Swift lands in Las Vegas
A Tokyo and Las Vegas flight typically takes 12–14 hours. But even if Taylor has to stop for a layover, she’ll still have ample time to make it to Allegiant Stadium.
Thanks to the 17-hour flight difference between Tokyo and Las Vegas, Swift’s flight could potentially depart on Sunday morning and still land in Nevada on Saturday night. Swift has more than enough time to sleep off the jet lag before Super Bowl LVIII kicks off on Sunday night.
