Kelce, 34, added: “She sort of prides herself on performing by climate and rain and issues like that. However when it’s unsafe to her, her crew and everyone within the stadium, you need to do what you need to do.”
Swift — who is understood to take the stage rain or shine on all of her live performance excursions — went out to dinner with Kelce that evening, however they “stored to [themselves]”.
“The primary evening I used to be there was actually the one probability I needed to go for dinner,” the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs tight ended mentioned on Wednesday. “It was the evening the present bought postponed so we didn’t wish to simply go and have a blast all through town — like we didn’t care concerning the present — so we made positive we stayed within the lodge and stored to ourselves.”
