Instead, fans of Taylor Swift flocked to tailgate at the same stadium the pop star rocked for three-nights during her Eras Tour back in May.
Now, with the latest development in Swift's life being her whirlwind romance with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, 'Swifties' began to pack the stadium for a chance to see her.
Images from the tailgates outside the lot show fans dressed up as Ms. Swift as well as others in various Kelce-Swift related merch.
It all leads up to Sunday Night Football - where Kelce hopes to lead the Chiefs over the hapless Jets.
Fans piled into the MetLife Stadium parking lots to prepare before Taylor Swift's arrival
Swift will likely be in attendance to watch as her boyfriend Travis Kelce plays the New York Jets

Inside MetLife Stadium, more images of Swifties began to leak out as the game approached
One group of fans spotted before the game flew a flag saying 'Taylor Swift 2024: Save America Again'.
Others went dressed as Swift herself - with one borderline cosplaying as the pop star from her 'Red' era.
Some fans seemed to brag about knowing Kelce's greatness before he dating the 'Fearless' singer.
One wore a jacket that said, 'Travis Kelce I Knew You Before Taylor' while another wore a t-shirt which read 'I've been in my Travis Kelce era'.
Once fans went inside the stadium, more pictures began to trickle out of signs directed at the Chiefs tight end. One woman held a sign with words meant to emulate Swift's hit song 'You Belong With Me'.
