Sorry Swifties — Taylor Swift won't be performing at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

While the pop superstar, 34, is expected to attend the annual music awards show on Sunday, PEOPLE has learned she won't perform at the ceremony because she must immediately travel to Japan for the next leg of her Eras Tour.

Swift is scheduled to perform four back-to-back shows at the Tokyo Dome from Feb. 7-10, before continuing the Eras Tour in Australia, Asia and Europe through the end of the summer. The tour is currently set to conclude with concerts in the United States and Canada this fall.

At the 2024 Grammy Awards, Swift is nominated in six categories: song of the year, record of the year and best pop solo performance for the No. 1 hit "Anti-Hero," best pop duo/group performance for "Karma" with Ice Spice as well as best pop vocal album and album of the year for Midnights.

The "Cruel Summer" musician's boyfriend, Travis Kelce, recently confirmed he won't be able to attend the Grammys alongside Swift during an interview on The Pat McAfee Show.

"I wish I could go support Taylor at the Grammys, and watch her win every single award that she’s nominated for," said the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, whose team will play in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11.

"But I think I've got practice on Sunday," Kelce, 34, coyly added, uncertain if his team would use Saturday as a practice day and Sunday as a travel day. However, he explained that his schedule just won't allow for him to attend the show while staying focused on Kansas City's fourth Super Bowl in five years.

Swift's Eras Tour has been a massive success since its launch in March 2023, grossing over $1 billion and becoming the most lucrative concert tour of all time, according to Pollstar.

"I knew this tour was harder than anything I’d ever done before by a long shot," she recently told Time of the 3-plus-hour-long concert, which sees Swift perform tracks from nearly all of her 10 original studio albums as well as two surprise songs each night.

She started training for the tour six months before it kicked off. "Every day I would run on the treadmill, singing the entire set list out loud," Swift told the outlet. "I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought."
