Travis Kelce was a no-show at Taylor Swift’s revamped Eras Tour concert in Paris because he was busy filming a TV series.

Niecy Nash shared a video of Kelce on the set of Ryan Murphy’s forthcoming FX horror drama “Grotesquerie” on her Instagram Story Thursday.

“Look who’s getting ready for his close-up,” the actress said while filming the Kansas City Chiefs tight end sitting in a makeup chair.

“Who, me?” Kelce, 34, replied with a grin as crew members powdered his face.

“Are you ready?” Nash, 54, captioned the clip, tagging the athlete’s Instagram handle.

Kelce wore a black long-sleeve sweater, black pants and brown boots as he got ready to film in Los Angeles. He accessorized with a gold medallion necklace.

The behind-the-scenes glimpse explained the three-time Super Bowl champion’s absence from his girlfriend’s performance in the City of Light that evening.

Swift, also 34, resumed her blockbuster world tour at Paris La Défense Arena after taking a two-month break from the road.

Kelce was clearly missed by the pop star, who gave him a subtle shout-out during her show by doing his favorite “Swag Surfin'” dance move while singing her song “So High School,” which is believed to be about the NFL star.

“It’s true, scout’s honor / You knew what you wanted, and, boy, you got her,” she sang while doing her choreography.

Kelce still cheered on Swift from across the globe by commenting on her guitarist’s Instagram post about the concert, which added songs from her latest album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” to its setlist.

“LFG!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻,” the football player wrote, using the acronym for “let’s f–king go.”

Kelce has turned up to several of Swift’s performances when his schedule allows, though it has become less flexible amid his rising Hollywood career.

Since making his relationship with Swift public in September 2023, the “New Heights” podcast co-host has taken on several new jobs, including hosting Amazon Prime Video’s “Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?”

Swift has also made sure to show her support for Kelce’s Football career, as she was a constant staple at his Chiefs Games throughout the 2023-2024 NFL season.

Most famously, the “Fortnight” singer flew from her concert in Tokyo to Las Vegas to see Kansas City defeat the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl in February.
