Taylor Swift paid tribute to Travis Kelce at her 'Eras Tour' concert in Dublin on Friday (28.06.24) night.

The 34-year-old pop superstar offered a nod to her Kansas City Chiefs tight end boyfriend while performing 'Midnight Rain' during the 'Midnights' section of the show at the city's Aviva Stadium by adopting his signature archer pose.

She playfully smiled as she shared the gesture while she sang the lyrics: "And he never thinks of me, except when I'm on TV."

During the show, Taylor - who debuted new costumes for the 'Folkmore' and '1989' sections of the show - thanked the crowd for making her feel "very powerful".

She told the sold-out crowd: "Dublin. This was wild. That made me feel amazing.

“Tonight, I get to play a sold-out show in Dublin on a Friday night.

“You guys are making me feel so good, it’s going straight to my head.

“You’re making me feel very powerful.”

During the surprise song segment of the show, the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker played 'State of Grace' from 'Red (Taylor's Version)' on guitar, before segueing into 'You're On Your Own Kid' - which received its eighth outing of the tour, making it her most played track in that portion of the show - from 'Midnights'.

She then headed across to her piano, where fans were treated to 'Sweet Nothing' - which makes reference to a pebble Taylor has from Wicklow, Ireland - from 'Midnights' and 'Hoax' from 'Folklore'.

Ahead of the show - her first of three in the city - U2 sent Taylor flowers to wish her luck.

The 'Cruel Summer' singer shared a photo of the bouquet on Instagram, which included a note that read: " “Dear Taylor, Welcome back to our hometown… leave some of it standing? Your Irish fan club, Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry."

She captioned the post: “Already feeling that Irish hospitality. U2, thanks for always being the classiest + coolest.”
