Taylor Swift gives sweet nod to Travis Kelce while performing

Taylor Swift made sure to give beau Travis Kelce a look and a gesture while performing her song “So High School” for the first time.

During her Eras Tour show in Paris on Thursday, May 9, Swift, 34, introduced a new section of her setlist which incorporated various songs from her new album, The Tortured Poets Department. When it came time for “So High School” — a song widely rumored to be about her romance with Kelce, 34 — the pop star threw the NFL star a discreet tribute in her choreography.

At one point during the performance, Swift burst out into a “swag surf,” a signature motion done by Kansas City Chiefs supporters during their anthem, “Swag Surfin’” by Fast Life Yungstaz. The singer and her performers sat on bleachers for the routine, undulating side to side and moving their palms like waves. Swift performed her first “swag surf” alongside Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany Mahomes, at the Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins game in February.)

Swift then took things to the next level by having dancer Kameron Saunders — who is the sibling of former Chiefs player Khalen Saunders — do one of Kelce’s signature touchdown celebrations during the lyrics, “You know what you want / And boy, you got her.”

In addition to “So High School” Swift’s TTPD setlist included tunes “But Daddy I Love Him,” “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me,” “Down Bad,” “Fortnight,” The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” and “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart.” Swift also played “loml” for the acoustic set, immediately after the Midnights song “Paris.”

Adding in her TTPD album, which hit retailers last month, meant also altering the remainder of the concert. Songs like “The Archer,” off her 2019 album Lover were removed entirely, while the Evermore and Folklore sections were combined into one.

“On The Eras Tour we have now reunited the sisters!” she said of the two records she released in 2020. “You can call it Folklore, Evermore or you can call it the sister albums!”

Swift also took a second to revise her performance with a brand-new wardrobe. She wore new Lover and Midnights bodysuits, while her Fearless dress went from gold to silver, and introduce da brand new “Enchanted” gown. During the Red set, Swift donned a new T-shirt that read, “This Is Not Taylor’s Version.” A new dreamlike yellow dress appeared for Folklore and Evermore, and 1989 brought a blue-and-pink sequined ensemble.

Thursday marked Swift’s first performance back after a two-month hiatus from the tour, launching off her international leg that will continue throughout December. While Kelce, who Swift has been dating since summer 2023, wasn’t in attendance for the performance, he did show his support by hyping up Swift and her band via social media.
