Taylor Swift delivered another electrifying performance during her European Eras Tour in Lisbon, Portugal but her NFL boyfriend, Travis Kelce, wasn’t there to see it.

While Swift belted out tunes for a captivated Lisbon audience on May 25th, Kelce opted to watch an NHL game in Dallas, Texas. 

The Dallas Stars took the opportunity to playfully recruit the tight end, referencing Swift's hit song ‘Blank Space’ in an Instagram post.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, Swift expressed her deep appreciation for the Lisbon crowd. “I've never seen a crowd like this,” she gushed, visibly moved by the audience's energy.

Despite missing the Lisbon show, Kelce has been a supportive boyfriend, attending five of Swift's European concerts already. He even raved about the experience on his podcast, calling the atmosphere “electric.”

Swifties can likely expect to see Kelce at a few more European shows before the NFL season kicks off. 

A source close to the couple revealed to Us Weekly that Kelce is “going back and forth from the U.S. to Europe while he has the time” to support his girlfriend.

While specific dates haven't been confirmed, Kelce previously expressed excitement about Swift's upcoming London shows, highlighting the impressive feat of filling Wembley Stadium eight times.

One thing's for sure: Swifties are in for a treat, no matter which show they attend. As Kelce himself promised, “There won't be a bad show, I promise you that.”
