JG Utada 5-12It was announced earlier this week that Jpop idol Hikaru Utada would be making an appearance at five U.S. stores, but the tour has since been postponed. 

Utada is ailed with “an acute case of left relapsing peritonsillitis,” accoring to the singer’s website. 

Utada had planned the tour to promote her latest album, “This is the One,” which is her second English Language album to date. Utada is wildly successful, the best-selling digital artist in the world, and enjoys a loyal following in the U.S., though her first English language album failed to meet sales expectations. Her previous U.S. public appearances have been well-attended, and her next tour is expected to be the same.
