Travis Kelce shares the sweet advice Taylor Swift gave him about performing at Kelce Jam music festival

Taylor Swift gave boyfriend Travis Kelce a little bit of advice before he took the stage in front of thousands of people at Kelce Jam on Saturday.

Speaking exclusively to Page Six, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end revealed the hitmaker told him to “just go out there and have fun.”

“I’d be silly if I tried to imitate what she does!” the 34-year-old joked on the red carpet ahead of the music festival, presented by Jim Beam.

Over 20,000 fans flocked to the Azura Amphitheater in Kansas City, Mo., over the weekend for the second-annual Kelce Jam, which featured performances by Lil Wayne, Diplo, 2 Chainz, and, of course, Kelce himself.

The NFL star seemingly took Swift’s advice to heart as he was seen dancing and having a great time throughout the event.

The three-time Super Bowl champion, who brought the Lombardi Trophy out on stage, tossed signed footballs into the crowd, chugged a few drinks and even got the chance to play DJ with Diplo.

“Through all my years in [Kansas City], life could be no better than right the f—k now,” Kelce told the crowd.

The hunky tight end sang a similar tune while chatting with us before the show, praising the community for their “unbelievable” support.

“It’s just been better and better every single year and KC just keeps showing up and showing out,” he told Page Six on the red carpet.

Taylor Swift Eras Tour

Last year, Kelce held the music festival the same weekend as the NFL Draft, which also took place in Kansas City.

Without the surge of people coming to the area, the athlete admitted he was “a little nervous” it wouldn’t be as popular this time around.

“I didn’t know what the outcome was going to be but sure enough everybody showed up and it’s just so much fun just getting out there and giving some high fives and seeing the smiles,” he told us.

Although Swift, 34, couldn’t attend the fun-filled event due to her Eras Tour schedule, Kelce’s closest friends — including quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife, Brittany Mahomes — showed up to support him.


Fortunately, the “Cruel Summer” singer and the record-breaking tight end spent most of the week together on a romantic getaway in Lake Como.

Following Swift’s shows in Paris last weekend, the lovebirds jetted off to Northern Italy, where they stayed at a luxurious $21,000-per-night private villa.

The couple, who began dating last summer, rented the Neoclassical landmark for three nights.

The pair enjoyed a scenic candlelit dinner in their perfectly manicured garden during their first night in town.

They looked every bit in love as they drank wine and chatted while holding hands over the table.

Following the meal — likely cooked by their in-house private chef — Swift and Kelce took a stroll along the water.

Later in the week, Swift and Kelce were spotted on a romantic boat ride before heading to dinner at one of the most popular restaurants in town.

While aboard the private boat, the pair were photographed kissing and cuddling up in the backseat.
