Joe Alwyn ‘will travel’ with Taylor Swift ‘when he can’ during her Eras tour

Taylor Swift met Joe Alwyn in late 2016. Was there some overlap between meeting Joe and the winding down of her summer-love tour with Tom Hiddleston? Probably. But it is what it is, and JoeTay will celebrate seven years together this coming fall/winter. There are always rumors about whether Joe proposed to Taylor or whether they’re secretly married or what have you. Taylor addresses some of those rumors in her music, but I’m not a Snakeologist so I won’t even try to interpret every little lyric and visual. Sitting here as a casual observer, I think Taylor and Joe seem fine, and I would assume that they’ve discussed marriage and their personal goals, and for their own reasons, they’ve decided that they’re simply going to live together and be a private couple for now. After nearly seven years, of course “Taylor going on tour” isn’t going to ruin their relationship. Please.

Every day is a fairytale for Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn as of late. A friend of the couple tells PEOPLE she’s “thrilled to have kicked off” her ongoing Eras Tour, which commenced on March 17 and runs through Aug. 9, noting that the Grammy winner’s longtime boyfriend will be visiting her along the way.

“She has rehearsed for months and was ready. She is in amazing shape,” says the insider. “She loves connecting with her fans again.”

The 33-year-old singer-songwriter won’t have to spend all her time alone on the road, according to the friend. “Joe will travel with her when he can,” the insider adds of Alwyn, 32. “They are great together. Joe is super supportive of her career.”

Swift’s Eras Tour launched last week in Glendale, Arizona and saw the musician captivate her audience with a massive, career-spanning 44-song setlist, as the show ran for 3 hours and 13 minutes. Throughout the concert, she nodded to each of her respective album eras and saved room at the end for her latest LP: Midnights.

Before performing “Betty” from Folklore — which was co-written by Alwyn under the pseudonym William Bowery — during the set, she opened up about her decision to create characters for the Grammy-winning album.

“Sort of a running theme in my music is that I love to explain to men how to apologize,” Swift said. “I just love it. It’s kind of my thing. I love to tell them, step-by-step, here’s how simple this is to fix things. If you just follow these easy steps that I’m laying out for you in a three-minute song… Just love the idea of men apologizing. And basically, this is a song about a teenage boy named James who was trying to apologize to the love of his life, and her name is Betty.”

Yeah… someone was talking about how Taylor hasn’t done a tour since 2018? Let me check that… yeah, her last tour was in 2018, the Reputation Tour. So five years in between the Reputation Tour and the Eras Tour, and Tay has only done one tour (before now) since she’s been with Joe. My general sense is that Joe probably will join her and support her behind-the-scenes, but he would hate to be front-and-center at any point.

Of course, I do have another thought – is this People Mag story trying to get ahead of something? JoeTay are so secretive, they could have broken up a million times already and we would be none the wiser. I don’t know, I really don’t.

    “on the road”

    So she’s actually going to drive now?

    She topped the list of celebrities using private jets before.
    Don’t think that is justifiable with all the climate issues.

    DeuxMoi says they have solid intel that they’re married.

      I recently watched Miss Americana, and she seems like a genuine, witty and kind person. There were scenes with her with a gigantic rock (Pear? Like 5+ct?) on *that* finger.

    • detritus says:

      I would be zero surprised if they were.

      It’s nice to see a power dynamic where the woman is the biggest star. Joe knows what he signed on for.

  3. Red says:

    If I was as rich and famous as Taylor, I wouldn’t marry ever either. Marriage isn’t always the goal for everybody.

    Also, I’ve seen fans say some songs reference that they’ve might have broken up and gotten back together a few times.

    Joe is low-key using his association with Taylor on tour, as there is a TikTok of him — I think maybe through Maxim magazine (or one of the guy-slanted publications). Its of his 10 best things. It’s interesting.

    My other theory is that for Taylor, the Eras tour is a retrospective of her career… I think its a retrospective of Taylor as a single woman. I think she’s putting a big bow on it and will be moving into a new Taylor. Maybe as a mom? I agree – marriage doesn’t have to be a goal her. She always struck me as someone who honours traditional values though.

    I think its good that she’s been very private with this relationship and is better at regulating her exposure.

    Taylor met Joe on April 29, 2016, not late 2016! She spells it out for us in her song “High Infidelity” on her latest album. Even before that song, she said on Reputation that she met him when her hair was bleached, which was spring 2016. Joe was around for the fall of Tayvin, and the rise and fall of Hiddleswift.

    • Charlotte says:

      I thought High Infidelity was about Calvin Harris? I believe I saw online that the date refers to a date his single came out with her as a writer under a pseudonym (she doesn’t state a year in the song). Also, high fidelity refers to records and Calvin Harris=DJ. I assumed the song referred to her cheating with Tom Hiddleston as I seem to remember there being some overlap there, wasn’t she dancing with Hiddles at an Oscars party or something whilst still with CH?

    Awww I hope they haven’t broken up! I love him for her. I imagine it’s hard to find a man secure enough to not be intimidated and jealous of her success.
