Travis Kelce and Ross Travis Hand Out Guitar Picks to Swifties at Eras Tour

Travis Kelce shared a special moment with Taylor Swift's fans when he supported her at her concert in Sydney on Friday.

Kelce, 34, and his friend, Ross Travis, flew halfway across the world to support Swift, also 34, as she took the stage for the first night of her Eras Tour performances at the Accor Stadium.

In a video shared on TikTok, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end was spotted approaching fans in the stands as he walked between sections on the floor, holding a red solo cup and sporting an arm full of friendship bracelets.

Kelce approached the fans during the show's "folklore" era, as Swift was performing "Illicit Affairs" on stage.

His friend, Travis, 31, pointed him towards a certain group of Swifties, and the NFL star paused, reached into his pocket and then handed out a couple of guitar picks as fans cheered for him.

"Highlight of the show," the user captioned their TikTok video.

The video was shared on X (formerly Twitter), by a Swift fan account with the caption, "Travis just gave them guitar picks…….he has been promoted……oh Oh its SERIOUS serious," referring to the guitar pick distributing duties having been previously reserved for Swift's father, Scott Swift.

Before Swift took the stage, Kelce was seen high-fiving fans as he made his way to the VIP tent, where he watched the show with singers Katy Perry and Rita Ora. Ora's husband, filmmaker Taika Waititi, also joined the group.

Kelce's friend, a current free-agent football player, shared his rave review for Swift after the show. "First show and made some friends tonight," Travis wrote over a photo of friendship bracelets. "Sydney you did not disappoint," he added.

In another slide, the NFL star's friend said, "I understand now...That. Was. Amazing," after watching Swift's performance.

After the 14-time Grammy winner completed her set, the pair were seen sharing a kiss as she left the stage in an adorable video posted on X. Kelce was seen waiting patiently for his other half as she waved to the audience before wrapping her arms around him and planting a kiss on his lips.

The couple, who recently celebrated Kelce's second consecutive Super Bowl win, then walked away together as fans cheered.

The pop superstar's first of four nights at the stadium kicked off shortly before 8 p.m. local time following a delay due to adverse weather. "Please note, due to weather, show start time has been delayed," the Accor Stadium shared in a post on X. "Stay undercover until further notice and follow venue screens and staff instructions. Stay safe and remember to be kind to those around you."

Swift's opening act, Sabrina Carpenter, was unable to perform her set due to the delay. According to local media outlet ABC, fans had been evacuated earlier due to lightning strikes near the stadium.

However, Carpenter, 24, later joined Swift on stage for a duet of a "White Horse" and "Coney Island" medley. The special moment between the two singers occurred just after Swift announced a new version of her upcoming albumThe Tortured Poet's Department, featuring a special bonus track titled, "The Albatross."

PEOPLE confirmed on Wednesday that Kelce would be traveling to Australia to attend Friday's gig amid speculation that he'd be making an appearance. It’s currently unknown how many shows he plans to see.
