“It Was an Absolute Blast” – Travis Kelce Shares Backstage Story of Joining Taylor Swift Onstage…

Travis Kelce revealed that he was the one who came up with the idea to join Taylor Swift onstage in London, describing the experience as “an absolute blast.” The NFL player emphasized his primary rule: “Do not drop the baby. Do not drop Taylor. Get her to the couch safe.”

Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs tight-end and Swift’s boyfriend, made a surprise appearance during her ‘Eras’ tour at Wembley Stadium on June 24. He joined Swift during the ‘Tortured Poets Department’ segment, lifting her off the floor and placing her on a seat before she performed ‘I Can Do It With A Broken Heart.’

During a recent episode of his podcast New Heights, Kelce shared that he jokingly suggested appearing during the ‘1989’ portion of the show, leading Swift to ask if he was serious. Kelce noted that it was the safest option since there was no bike involved that could have caused an accident. He expressed his honor in performing alongside Swift, whom he described as a “true showman.”

Kelce also revealed that his onstage dance moves were inspired by Jim Carrey’s tap dancing scene in the 1994 film Dumb and Dumber. He had always wanted to perform that move but never found the right moment until then. Reflecting on the performance, he said it was a fun and playful part of the show, allowing him to entertain the crowd and enjoy the moment with Swift.

He highlighted the moment when the audience realized it was him onstage, describing it as jarring and noting the immense size of the stage. He concluded by expressing relief that he didn’t disappoint Swift, reiterating his rule about not dropping her.

A five-star review of Swift’s Edinburgh performance by NME praised the sense of community cultivated by Swift and her fans, who share friendship bracelets, laugh, cry, and embrace the tour’s in-jokes. Swift’s ‘Eras’ tour, according to the review, is a marvel of a show with a beating heart.

Swift is set to return to the UK next month for five more dates at Wembley Stadium, with Paramore as the opening act.
