Fujii said it was worth every yen, especially after Swift won her 14th Grammy — including her record-breaking fourth Album of the Year award for “Midnights” — on Sunday and announced that her new album “The Tortured Poets Department” will be released April 19.
Fans have been watching to see whether the singer will finish the Japan part of her Eras Tour in time to attend the Super Bowl on Sunday to see her partner and football star Travis Kelce play in Las Vegas.
Japanese fans prayed for her safe and speedy flight back to the U.S.
“I want to see both of them there together,” Satomi Seki said.
From the U.S., Swift will travel for the Australian leg of her tour later in the week, flying halfway around the world on her private jet. That has led to criticism about additional carbon emissions and lavish spending.
