Travis Kelce auctioned 4 tickets for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour — and made $80,000
  • Travis Kelce auctioned off four Taylor Swift Eras Tour tickets for $80,000 at a charity event.
  • The auction took place at Patrick Mahomes' 15 and Mahomies Foundation Golf Classic gala.

Travis Kelce sold four tickets to Taylor Swift's Eras Tour for $80,000 at a charity auction hosted by Patrick Mahomes.

Kelce and Swift attended the auction at The 15 and Mahomies Foundation Golf Classic gala in Las Vegas on Saturday, which raised money for health, wellness, and community resources that impact the lives of children.

Swift seemingly decided to auction off the tickets spontaneously, as they weren't included in the docket.

"I think, um, I was just talking to my significant other, and uh, we might have one other auction item that wasn't on the docket," Kelce said in a video posted to TikTok, cited by People.

"Has anybody heard of the Eras tour?" he said. The crowd cheered in response.

Kelce went on to say they had four tickets for the Eras Tour's US dates in New Orleans, Miami, Oregon, and Minneapolis later this year.

Harry Santa-Olalla, the auctioneer, confirmed in an Instagram post that the tickets sold for $80,000.

Santa-Olalla also documented the moment Kelce "convinced" Swift to auction the four tickets in an Instagram Story, according to People.

Several videos circulating on social media showed Swift and Kelce entering the event, and later, Swift was filmed waving a red napkin as the tickets were auctioned.

Bloomberg estimated that Swift earned $1.1 billion in 2023, largely due to the success of the Eras Tour.

An analysis by research company QuestionPro, cited by a Business Insider report, found that the average Swiftie spent $1,300 to head to the Eras Tour in 2023.

Some fans who spoke to BI's Juliana Kaplan admitted to spending up to $20,000 on expenses relating to Swift's tour, including flights, accommodation, costumes, and tickets.

Last year, data from the research company QuestionPro provided exclusively to CNN estimated Swift's tour will gross $2.2 billion in North American ticket sales, and that is before the resale market.
