The most prestigious event in music and sports is exactly one week apart — and two of the biggest names in those respective fields, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, are being recognized at each of them.

The pop superstar is expected to attend the Grammy Awards on Feb. 4 in Los Angeles and the following Sunday, the NFL star will play in the 2024 Super Bowl on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas. Ahead of the music event, fans have speculated whether Kelce will support Swift in person.


It's a big night for the songstress, who already has 12 Grammy wins to her name. Not only is Swift a six-time nominee this year, but she's in a position to make history as the first artist with four album of the year wins should Midnights receive the award.

Though Kelce has shown support for Swift in the past, previously attending her successful Eras Tour, the Kansas City Chiefs player has confirmed he won't be able to attend the Grammys amid his busy Super Bowl schedule.

Swift's attendance at the Super Bowl, meanwhile, is no walk in the park either! In fact, the pop star could soon double as a time traveler as she'd have to fly from her Eras Tour concert in Tokyo to Las Vegas in less than 24 hours to get to the stadium in time for kickoff.

Should the hitmaker complete the remarkable feat, her presence at the Big Game would mark the 13th time she's attended a game to cheer Kelce on this season.

Read on for a breakdown of Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs' schedule ahead of the Super Bowl and what Kelce has said about missing the Grammys.

Kelce confirmed on Jan. 31 that he won't be attending the 2024 Grammy Awards. When speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, he cited Super Bowl preparation as his reason why.

"Unfortunately, I gotta get ready for this big ol’ Super Bowl we got in a week," he said. “I wish I could go support Taylor at the Grammys and watch her win every single award that she’s nominated for but I think I got practice on Sunday."

Super Bowl Opening Night officially kicks off the biggest week in football on Monday, Feb. 5. Taking place at Allegiant Stadium in downtown Las Vegas, hundreds of media will interview the players and coaches from the Chiefs and the 49ers during their only public appearance ahead of the Big Game.

It hasn't been made public whether Kelce and the Chiefs will touch down in Nevada the day before the kickoff event, but the team will be present for the Opening Night festivities. This also marks the only time the Chiefs and the 49ers will be together in one location before the Super Bowl.
