Taylor Swift at the Superbowl 2024

How to watch Taylor Swift, uh, the Chiefs vs 49ers at the Super Bowl 2024 in Australia

It's going to be a star studded affair

You’re probably going to want to add some frankfurts and mac and cheese to your next grocery list because it’s almost time for America’s biggest sporting event of the year, the Super Bowl.

While watching the event is a quintessential American pastime, it’s so big that it’s got its own following here in Australia. Fortunately, it will be available live and free here in Aus.

While most years, the biggest musical acts perform centre stage, there’s hype that one of the biggest celebrities will be sitting in the audience in 2024. Pop princess Taylor Swift has famously been dating the Kansas City Chiefs player tight end Travis Kelce, and she’s attended multiple games this season.

How to watch the Super Bowl LVIII

It will also be broadcast on KAYO and Foxtel on its ESPN channel. 

Who’s performing?

Last year’s show-stopping half-time performance saw Rihanna announce her second pregnancy by revealing her belly during the show. With stakes that high, the bar has been set for the 2024 halftime performance.

This year, early noughties superstar Usher will be taking the stage. But he won’t be alone, he’ll be joined by Post Malone, Tiesto, Reba McIntire and Andra Day.

Will Taylor Swift be there?

Of course, the question on every Swiftie’s mind is whether Taylor Swift will be there to cheer on her boyfriend Travis Kelce.

Taylor is currently in the middle of her worldwide Eras tour, so the schedule is tight – but not impossible.

She’s performing at Tokyo Dome on Saturday, February 10th, and the Super Bowl is on Sunday, February 11th.

The concert starts at 6pm (local Tokyo time) and her shows usually run for about three hours, which means she’ll wrap up at about 9pm local time, which is 4am, February 10th in Las Vegas.

The kick-off for the Super Bowl is 3:30pm local time on February 11th, giving Taylor almost a 36-hour gap between finishing her Tokyo show, and the beginning of the sporting event.

The flight time is around 12 hours without a stopover, and considering that Taylor has her own private jet, she can easily make it.

However, her next show is on February 16th in Melbourne. Victoria is 19 hours ahead of Las Vegas, and the travel time is around 17 hours.

It’s all very confusing but that means that if Taylor flew to Melbourne straight after the Super Bowl, she’d arrive in Melbourne at 7:30pm on Monday, February 12th.

TL;DR Yes, Taylor has enough time to get to the Super Bowl between her tour dates, especially if she uses her private jet.
