Despite a massive following in Japan and a newish American album with production by Stargate and Tricky Stewart, Utada hasn’t yet managed to build a Stateside audience to rival those of any of the dance-pop divas to whom she’s been compared. (Material’s kind of wack, which could be why.) Nonetheless, several of the dates on the brief U.S. tour that this show concludes have sold out, including this one. Curious about what her cult knows?
