Utada was so freaking awesome! I was so excited when she played a couple of old songs like Automatic and First Love, like everyone else in the venue. It was a bit crap that absolutely no photos were allowed (and my camera was taken away!) but I really, really enjoyed the show.
I found the set list from LA/Seattle show on the wonderful internet, which looked like almost the same but i changed the order a little bit to fit with my memory, and also searched on Twitter timeline to make it complete.
1. On and On (This is the One)
2. Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - FYI (This is the One)
3. Poppin (This is the One)
4. This One (Cryling Like A Child) (This is the One)
5. Passion [J] (Ultra Blue)
6. Sakura drops [J] (Deep River)
7. Stay Gold [J] (Heart Station)
8. Devil Inside (Exodus)
9. Kremlin Dusk (Exodus)
10. You Make Me Want To Be A Man (Exodus)
11. The Bitter End (Placebo cover)
12. Apple and Cinnamon (This is the One)
13. Come Back To Me (This is the One)
14. First Love [J] (First Love)
15. Can You Keep A Secret? [J] (Distance)
16. Automatic [J] (First Love)
17. Dirty Desire (This is the One)
18. Simple And Clean (Deep River)
19. Me Muer (This is the One)
As you can see from the list, the most exciting moment came along where she played First Love :) She performed many songs from her latest, and then did some talk about Asian population and Japanese fans in SF, and asked "Do you want to hear some Japanese songs?" which psyched everyone, but the songs she sang were Passion and Sakura Drops, which were great but not that "Japanese songs" we all wanted to hear, right? :D
She also played a couple of songs from Exodus, which, er, is not the greatest success to put mildly. Then suddenly she played First Love after Come Back To Me, which made everyone just go crazy (AWESOME video - goose bumps guaranteed if you were there!). She also went on with Can You Keep A Secret? and Automatic... I just hoped the live last forever.
I've seen many japanese bands and artists show in San Francisco such as Puffy Amiyumi and Cornelius but Utada is definitely the best. Actually this is one of the most epic live i've ever been to in my entire life. I'm updating this post on Tuesday, 2 days after the show but i still feel like i'm hungover from her awesomeness.
If you're in Las Vegas, Chicago, NY or London and have a chance to get to see her show (though i know most tickets are sold out) i highly, highly recommend it. This is like once in a lifetime experience that you can see her live in such a small "live house" type of venues, which is impossible in Japan anyways.
