Travis Kelce Praises Taylor Swift’s ‘Absolutely Unbelievable’ New ‘Tortured Poets’ Eras Tour Setlist

Travis Kelce is one of few lucky Swifties who got to see Taylor Swift premiere her brand new Eras Tour set — which is now complete with select numbers from her Billboard 200-topping new album, The Tortured Poets Department — across four shows in Paris over the weekend. And on the latest episode of his podcast New Heights Wednesday (May 15), the Kansas City Chiefs tight end couldn’t help but gush about the “absolutely unbelievable” experience.

“I had a blast at Tay’s show,” the athlete told his brother and co-host, retired Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce. “Her new rendition of The Eras Tour, I suggest everybody go see it. It has her new Tortured Poets Department, a handful of those songs in the new show, which means there’s a new segment and new lights and new dancing. New everything to the f–king show.” 

“It is absolutely unbelievable,” he continued. “I enjoyed every bit of it … I don’t know if they’re just getting better or if I just keep forgetting how they are. It was electric in there. Paris was on a whole other level.” 

The episode comes about three days after Travis attended Swift’s final Paris concert at La Defense Arena Sunday (May 12), where fan cameras captured him dancing along to the show with suitemates Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper. The “Anti-Hero” singer’s tenure in the City of Love marked the first few times she’d ever performed tracks such as “Fortnight,” “Down Bad” and “So High School,” a love song thought by many fans to have been inspired by the athlete.  

“I got to see a few familiar faces,” Travis added on the show. “I got to see Gigi and Bradley. Bradley Cooper, man, BC, Big Coop. We were all in the suite having a blast.” 

At the show, Swift also debuted a new outfit made with Chiefs colors: red and gold. Later on, she performed “The Alchemy” — another TTPD track believed to be about Travis — as part of the surprise song section, during which the Ohio native held up a hand heart in the stands.

The 14-time Grammy winner will next perform in Stockholm for three nights at Friends Arena starting Friday (May 17), after which she’ll spend the summer traveling through Spain, Scotland, Ireland and parts of Europe before returning to the U.S. in October. And if you’re wondering whether Travis will continue to tag along on the tour, it certainly sounds like he’s game. 

“I’m gonna be dancing around,” he hinted on New Heights. “I’m all over the world this offseason.”
