How NFL star Travis Kelce tried and failed to give Taylor Swift his phone number during The Eras Tour
Travis Kelce, a Kansas City Chiefs player, revealed to his brother Jason that he tried to give his phone number to Taylor Swift.
Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has taken in several cities in the United States, including Kansas City, home of the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. Travis Kelce, the team’s tight end, was determined not to miss it and went along to the concert, held at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on 7 July, with a plan.
Speaking on the New Heights podcast, which he hosts with brother Jason, Kelce revealed his intention was to have given the pop superstar his phone number by the end of the night. It was a mission that failed, however.
Kelce’s friendship bracelet ploy to hand Swift his number
In keeping with the trend set by ‘Swifites’ of attending gigs wearing friendship bracelets, Kelce went along with one that had his phone number on it, which he had hoped to give to the singer.
However, things didn’t quite work out as planned. “I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” said Kelce on the 26 July episode of New Heights.
“I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her. I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it”, Travis told brother Jason.
“Your number as in 87 or your phone number?” Jason quipped, referring to Travis’ Kanas City Chiefs jersey number, to which Travis replied: “You know which one”.
Which other celebrities have attended The Eras Tour?
The NFL star isn’t the only celebrity to have been spotted at one of Swift’s concert.
