TOKYO (AP) – Will she make it?

Taylor Swift’s latest song will still ring in the ears of thousands of fans at Tokyo Dome on Saturday night when the singer is expected to rush to a private jet at Haneda Airport that will take her on a journey across the time zone to see her boyfriend, NFL star Travis Kelce, is attending the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

The prospect of this race against time, accompanied by a police escort, crossing nine time zones and the international date line, has fired imaginations and speculation for weeks.

At Saturday night’s concert, there was ample evidence of the unique cultural phenomenon that is the Swift-Kelce relationship, a connection between professional football and Swift’s immense star power. In addition to the sequined dresses celebrating Swift in the packed Tokyo Dome, there were Travis Kelce jerseys, hats and other gear celebrating his team, the Kansas City Chiefs. Some in Tokyo spent thousands of dollars to attend the pop superstar’s concerts this week.

To call the global surveillance of Swift’s travels intense is an understatement.

Fans followed his jet. Carbon emissions from his world travels, which contribute to global warming, have been criticized. Authorities have ruled on his ability to park his plane at Las Vegas airports.

Even Japanese diplomats got involved. The Japanese embassy in Washington posted on social media that it could attend the Super Bowl on time, including three Swift song titles in its statement: “Speak Now,” “Fearless” and “Red.”

“If she leaves Tokyo the evening after her concert, she should comfortably arrive in Las Vegas before the start of the Super Bowl,” the statement said.

Swift has already traveled the world this week.

Before coming to Asia, she attended the Grammys in Los Angeles, winning her 14th Grammy and a record fourth Album of the Year award for “Midnights.” The show was watched by nearly 17 million people. She also made the surprise announcement that her next album would be ready for release in April.

Then the four concerts in Tokyo, and now apparently a rushed trip to try to get to Las Vegas to see Kansas City Chiefs tight end Kelce play in the Super Bowl. She followed Kelce for much of the Chiefs season.

If all goes as planned, she is expected to fly to Australia later this week to continue her tour.

“This week is truly the best kind of chaos,” Swift posted Wednesday on Instagram.
