utada could never play an empty venue, the key is to understand product vs demand relationship. she isn't as huge here as in japan so they should book only a small number of shows at smaller venues and people would travel crazy distances to see her and it would get her really crazy press and make her look great. like a show in New York, LA, Miami, Austin TX, and Hawaii. There are so many Japanese here in Hawaii if Utada played anywhere she would probably be mobbed like in Japan.

I don't think they'd make her play stadiums right away, but some kind of a club tour might work. But since there's a "Tour" sub-menu on her US site, I guess that a tour of some kind is really considered...

Why in the bloody hell do they keep pushing this album back!? They already released it in japan, with 2 additional tracks!!!! and they can't release it here till the 12th of may? wtf... it was "supposed" to be released tomorrow.. but nooooooooo, they hate jigen! I'm planning on taking the day off to go buy the album, and wallow in its greatness, but nooooo they want me to wait... I hate you island... STOP GETTING MY HOPES AND DREAMS UP!

I sure hope this is to built more hype before the release, because I've waited long enough, its not like we are getting extra tracks, in fact we are getting 2 less... so much easier to press 10 tracks compared to 12...

The album was digitally released today (March 24) on iTunes.
The physical release date was pushed back to May 12, but it seems there's another rumoured push-back: April 21.

That'd be much better, May 12 is just too far away and somehow I think it might really hurt the sales. Although I guess "physical sales" aren't in huge numbers generally anyway and iTunes is where the marketing would focus anyway...
I guess it gets pushed back due to release schedules of other artists to maximize the sales. I'm curious to see how it turns out for her

She performed "Come Back To Me", "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - FYI" and "Me Muero" on Ryan Seacrest's show (dunno who he is), so I guess that's gonna be good promotion. Let's just hope people like it.

But as far as I know it's good promotion for her, right?

Yes. But he's a douche, is all I'm saying.

Can you link to the performances, Shinji?
