Alt-Rock icons Better Than Ezra are gearing up for this spring’s highly awaited LIVE A LITTLE TOUR, with tickets for all tour dates on sale now. Announced earlier this week, the 15-date headlining run begins on May 3 — also the release date for BTE’s new album Super Magick, their first full-length in ten years. Go here to buy tickets for the LIVE A LITTLE TOUR, and see below for the full list of tour dates and venues.

Kicking off with two dates at House Of Blues in their hometown of New Orleans, the LIVE A LITTLE TOUR wraps up on May 25 and includes stops in major cities like Nashville, Detroit, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, and more. With over three decades of touring experience under the belt, BTE pack their setlist with a winning balance of fan favorites, unexpected covers, and timeless highlights from their extensive catalog — including classics like “Good,” “Desperately Wanting,” and “King of New Orleans.” And while they continually sell out amphitheaters and arenas worldwide, the band approaches every show with the same boundless energy and unbridled sense of fun they’ve embodied since getting their start playing house parties at Louisiana State University back in 1988.

In recent years, BTE have captivated crowds as part of their summer 2023 tour with Train (including a headlining date at the famed El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles), as well as their hard-charging RETURN OF LEGENDS OF THE FALL 2023 TOUR. They’ve also repeatedly taken the stage at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival (a Franklin, TN-based event co-founded by BTE singer/guitarist Kevin Griffin) and earned praise from the likes of American Songwriter, who stated that “BTE gives an infectious performance. You can’t help but want to join in on the fun. When you watch them onstage, it’s no wonder they’ve managed to survive after all this time.”

When choosing a name for their latest tour, BTE looked to one of the most wildly catchy tracks from Super Magick. Released last Friday (3/8) and already a fan favorite at their live show, “Live A Little” is the third single shared from the band’s long-anticipated tenth studio album — a boldly eclectic body of work that also features “Mystified” (an electrifying piece of true-to-life storytelling that premiered last summer alongside its vintage-styled video) and “Contact High” (a charmingly tongue-in-cheek track recalling some of the Rolling Stones’ most fun-loving Country-flavored tunes). Due out via Round Hill Records, Super Magick is available for pre-order/pre-save here.

Since forming in 1988 at Louisiana State University, Better Than Ezra have been on a rocket ride through the Rock world, definitively making their presence felt at every turn. The band exists in rare air among their peers, having occupied spots on Billboard’s 100 Greatest Alternative Songs of All Time” and “100 Greatest Alternative Artists of All Time.” Better Than Ezra was a prominent fixture on radio and MTV in the Nineties and early 2000’s, thanks in large part to the monumental success of their cherished 1993 independent album DELUXE, which included standout fan-favorite “Good” —a MULTI-PLATINUM selling #1 hit on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart.




Songs, albums, live performances — some are simply timeless. From their early roots, circa 1988, playing house parties at Louisiana State University, Better Than Ezra have made their mark on the music world in a major way. Yes, the New Orleans quartet, founded by Kevin Griffin [lead vocals, guitar, piano] and Tom Drummond [bass, backing vocals], who unleash hummable melodies, unshakable guitar riffs, and confessional lyrics, have stood the test of time — from 1995’s #1 hit “Good” all the way to Taylor Swift’s famous 2010 cover of the Better Than Ezra classic “Breathless.” And they’re still going strong: after headlining monumental live shows all throughout 2023, the band is now gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated tenth studio album Super Magick, due out May 3 via Round Hill Records. Named one of the “100 Greatest Alternative Artists of All Time” by Billboard, with a legacy that includes inspiring a classic Saturday Night Live skit, Better Than Ezra recently shared the first batch of singles from Super Magick: “Mystified,” “Contact High,” and “Live A Little.”
