So much for having to fight scalpers for Taylor Swift tickets this time around. With Twin Cities fans once again being asked to jump through hoops this week to buy tickets for her newly added second concert at U.S. Bank Stadium, it’s probably worth pointing out that seats to the previously announced show are far from sold out – and they’re even selling well below face value on ticket resale sites such as Stubhub and VividSeats.
Even now that Target Center’s $140 million remodel is done, it looks as if Xcel Energy Center will still be hosting most of the arena concerts in 2018. The St. Paul hockey hub announced two more big shows on Monday morning following a steady string of other announcements in recent weeks, including Bon Jovi, Rod Stewart/Cyndi Lauper, Steely Dan/Doobie Brothers and James Taylor/Bonnie Raitt.
Whether or not the Twins have some power hitters this season, we know they’ll at least offer some power ballads: Eighties anthem rockers Journey and Def Leppard are pairing up for a ballpark tour that will land July 27 at Target Field. The Minneapolis date falls midway through a 58-city tour by the classic-rock vets, who are playing many other ballparks together including Wrigley Field and Fenway Park.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
