Travis Kelce Appears Emotional During Taylor Swift’s Amsterdam Mashup Featuring Lyrical Nod to Him

Travis Kelce appears to be getting emotional at Taylor Swift’s latest nod to him during her Eras show!

The Kansas City Chiefs player, 34, seemed moved as he watched Swift, 34, perform a mashup of “Mary’s Song” at her final show in Amsterdam. The performance also included “So High School” and “Everything Has Changed.” This took place on Saturday, July 6 at the Johan Cruijff Arena. Kelce was even spotted wiping his face several times during the performance.

In a video posted by a fan account on X (formerly Twitter), Kelce stood in the stands filming his girlfriend performing on his phone. He then swayed slowly to Swift’s mashup performance. At one point, as Swift sang the sweet lyrics from “Everything Has Changed,” she crooned: “Cause all I know is we said, ‘Hello.'” She continued, “And your eyes look like comin’ home.” Finally, Swift sang, “All I know is a simple name, and everything has changed.” The tight end was seen wiping his face and near to his eyes.

Kelce then clapped his hands above his head before continuing to watch Swift perform the mashup.

Seconds later, Chiefs’ star Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany Mahomes, who also attended the singer’s final Amsterdam show with her husband, walked up to Kelce and appeared to check on him as he wiped his face and eyes once more.

Toward the end of the mashup, Swift sang the closing lyrics to her 2006 track “Mary’s Song”: “I’ll be 87, you’ll be 89 / I’ll still look at you like the stars that shine / In the sky, oh my my my.” Kelce clapped with his arms raised above his head again as fans in the arena cheered loudly.

The lyrics for “Mary’s Song” have taken on new meaning since the singer and Kelce have been dating. His team jersey number is 87, and both Kelce and Swift were born in 1989. (The singer’s 2014 album is also titled 1989.) And of course, “So High School” is believed to be about Swift’s relationship with the tight end. The mashup itself appeared to be a nod to her boyfriend.

Following the final show in Amsterdam, Kelce and Swift were spotted for the second time by fans leaving the arena together. They had done the same the previous night. The couple sparked dating rumors in September 2023 and went public with their romance in October 2023.

In a video posted by a concertgoer on TikTok, the couple emerged from backstage.

Swift waved at fans in the stands, while Kelce raised his hands in the air, hyping the crowd up. He then held out his hand for his girlfriend to take. The pair then sweetly looked at each other before making their exit out of the arena hand-in-hand.

During Swift’s second performance in Amsterdam on Friday, July 5, she paid tribute to Kelce again by throwing her archer pose, recreating the NFL star’s signature pose. Swift also changed the lyrics to “Karma” to “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs.” She typically does this when Kelce attends her shows. Indeed, during the July 6 show she once more made the “Karma” lyric change.

He has been supporting Swift for most of her recent shows in Europe. This includes Dublin, Ireland, and London, where he surprised fans by appearing onstage with the singer for the first time at Wembley Stadium.
