The Courteeners at NOS Alive 2017 The Courteeners’ Liam Fray ended their set with a quick political statement and praise for the festival’s line-up. “We’re from Manchester, UK. Which in my eyes is still part of Europe,” he said. “I just want to say what an honor it is to share a stage with The Kills, one of my favourite bands, and the Foo Fighters, what an amazing band.”
Depeche Mode brought NOS Alive 2017 to a shuddering climax last night, finishing off with sexual hymn ‘Personal Jesus’. The group had walked on stage one hour and 45 minutes earlier with the strains of The Beatles’ ‘Revolution’ still echoing in the audience’s ears. The choice, a Depeche Mode concert staple and a reference to their recent single ‘Where’s The Revolution?’, set the subversive, insurrectionist tone for their set.
As they’ve worked their way around European festivals for the past few weeks, visiting Iceland, Glastonbury, Poland, Spain and many more, Foo Fighters have consistently told crowds about their intention to play for a really, really, really long time. Last night (July 7) at Lisbon’s Nos Alive, they made good on that promise with one of longest, most epic sets the band have ever played, spanning a whopping two and a half hours – in spite of them taking to the stage at midnight.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
