Rita Ora Gushes About Her ‘Pop Girls’ Reunion With Taylor Swift & Katy Perry at Sydney Eras Tour Show

Only one may have taken the stage, but three pop stars were present at Taylor Swift‘s Eras Tour show in Sydney in February. And while appearing on the latest episode of The Tonight Show Tuesday (July 9), Rita Ora had nothing but kind things to say about the concert, which she watched from a VIP tent alongside Katy Perry.


“The pop girls have really come together on that one,” the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer told host Jimmy Fallon of the experience, calling Perry her “buddy.”

“We were in Australia and we were both doing separate jobs, and obviously everyone in the world has seen the Eras Tour,” continued Ora of the “Firework” singer. “So I went and I really wanted to just hang out. It was really cool because it was the first time I’ve seen her in ages and she’s putting out music, and you know, everyone’s just doing their thing.”

After the show, the vocalist posted a backstage photo with the “Anti-Hero” singer, plus pictures of her cozying up to Perry at Accor Stadium. She also shared a snap with Swift’s boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who flashed a big smile while posing with an arm around Ora’s shoulder.

“It’s fair to say Sydney 🇦🇺 always delivers – Or shall we say our TayTay @taylorswift always delivers!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “thank you for having us! Seeing my KP @katyperry made my heart 🥹 to many queens to count!”

The Descendants: The Rise of Red star was also accompanied by husband Taika Waititi at the Eras show, and the director joined in on Ora’s photo with Swift. The couple tied the knot in August 2022, although they didn’t reveal their nuptials until their anniversary the next year.

On the Tonight Show, Ora shared that their intimate ceremony in Los Angeles was somewhat spontaneous. Even their Elvis impersonator was a total surprise, with the star saying she “didn’t ask” for him to be there.

“There was no plan,” she told Fallon. “I got married off the cuff and it was so fun … The first song [the impersonator] sang was, ‘I’m caught in a trap.’ I was like, ‘Is that how we want to start?’”
