Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Superstar Taylor Swift's mad dash to the Super Bowl will not be easy, as she will have to fly from Tokyo to Las Vegas in time to see her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, on the field. But it is doable.

Swift is play four shows in Tokyo this week on her international Eras tour.

Kansas City and the San Francisco 49ers are set to play for the NFL championship trophy on Sunday in Las Vegas.

While Swift's fans worried she might not be able to make it to Super Bowl LVII on time, the Embassy of Japan in the United States issued a statement on X to reassure everyone that despite the 12-hour flight and 17-hour time difference, it would be possible to comfortably complete the trip by the 4:30 p.m. PST.

Swift's final concert in Japan is set for Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. local time. On average, Swift's shows have been running about three hours and 15 minutes long.

The excitement over her appearance at the game has heightened interest in her every move. Swift sold one of her two private planes after Florida college student Jack Sweeney, known for tracking celebrity flights, shared her flight data on social media.

According to the FAA site data, Swift sold her Dassault Falcon 900, which she's owned since 2009, on Jan. 30.

Swift and tight end Kelce started dating after Kelce put her "on blast" on his New Heights podcast.

"This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell," Swift told Time magazine in its interview naming her Person of the Year. "We started hanging out right after that.

"So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I'm grateful for, because we got to get to know each other. By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple."

On Monday, after watching her win -- and break a record -- at Sunday's Grammy Awards, Kelce told reporters he planned to hold up his "end of the bargain" by winning a Super Bowl.
