Britney Spears is back - and she's coming to Manchester on a new UK tour. The pop superstar is taking her Las Vegas residency on the road this summer for a string of dates around the US and Europe. The Toxic singer will perform four dates in the UK, including a show at Manchester Arena, as well as concerts in Scarborough, Glasgow and London. Britney has sold almost four million records worldwide since storming the pop charts with Baby One More Time in 1999.
Valentine's Day is upon us, just as our wallets and purses are recovering from Christmas and New Year's Eve. It's ok though, because it's a time to celebrate love, or the fact that you are resolutely and happily single. Either way, there's plenty to keep you busy - from drive in cinemas to power balled karaoke or a night at the opera.
It has stood on Charles Street for over 100 years - and now this old auction house is about to become Manchester's hottest new music venue. Promoters Now Wave - Wes Killerbee and Jon Wickstead - have teamed up with Ruth Hemmingfield, formerly of Gorilla and Deaf Institute, to bring the Cape Dunn art auctioneers building back to life as a gig space. Between them, the trio have staged some of Manchester's most memorable gigs over the last 10 years, including shows by The xx, alt-J and Grimes.
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".
