ALL-STAR CELEBRATION OF ALTERNATIVE POP ROCK ‘N’ ROLL TO VISIT MORE THAN 25 CITIES ACROSS THE NATION KICKING OFF JULY 17
“…the songs are quite catchy, they don’t take themselves too seriously, and they win big points for likability. It fits nicely into the BTE catalog.” – Billboard
“Better Than Ezra recaptures magic with ‘All Together Now.’” – CBS News Online
New York, NY (April 13, 2015) – Celebrating the golden age of alternative pop rock ‘n’ roll, Better Than Ezra will head back out on the road this July teaming up with a star-studded lineup featuring Sugar Ray, Uncle Kracker, and Eve 6 for the hugely popular summer tour, Under The Sun.
“We go way back with Sugar Ray and Uncle Kracker since the 90’s when we all came up through the ranks together,” says Kevin Griffin, lead singer of Better Than Ezra. “We’ve done one-off shows that were a blast but never have done a proper tour until now.”
Now in its third year, Under The Sun has proven one of summer’s favorite events, met with packed houses and euphoric media attention at each stop along the way. Entertainment Weekly kicked things off by declaring 2013’s inaugural tour to be “the coolest tour of the summer!” In addition to major features in such national publications as Billboard and the Los Angeles Times, LATFUSA.com hailed the UTS show at Los Angeles’ legendary Greek Theatre as “a nostalgic night with unbelievable energy radiating from both the stage and the audience.” “It was amazing,” noted Examiner.com, “a great show, very energetic and a real crowd pleaser…if you missed this one, your loss.” “What a remarkable time,” raved OmahaNightlife.com, “what a happy night, what a show.”
Under The Sun Tour: Summer 2015 gets underway Friday, July 17 at Chandler, Arizona’s Wildhorse Casino and then continues through late August.

When Better Than Ezra hit #1 with 1995’s “Good” it was an overnight success story more than five years in the making. The New Orleans-based band came together in 1988 at Louisiana State University, first unveiling their debut album, Deluxe, independently in 1993 and then again via Elektra Records in 1995. Fueled by singles like “In The Blood” and the blockbuster “Good” – which reached the Top 40 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – Deluxe achieved RIAA 2x platinum certification and undeniable status as a classic of the alternative era.
Two decades later, Better Than Ezra are as impactful as ever before, with fans including Taylor Swift, who attested to the trio’s timeless appeal by covering their 2005 single, “Breathless,” at the historic Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief charity telethon.
