Willie Nelson must be feeling a lot better. Just a couple of days after announcing he was calling off his Feb. 15 concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall due to the flu, the venue has announced a new date: Feb. 28. That's just two weeks later, which is good news for anyone worried that Willie was seriously ailing.
Billy Joel saw the future. Long before the curtain rose and fell on 2017, back when he was still an angry young man of 26, he knew he’d be spending some of that far-off year down in Florida. On Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway), the final song on Joel’s 1976 album Turnstiles, he envisions himself as much older, recounting the apocalyptic fall of New York "so many years ago, before we all lived here in Florida."
Whatever fame and fortune awaits Declan McKenna on what should be a very long career, he can say it all started in St. Petersburg. Okay, not all of it. By the time McKenna made his U.S. debut at Jannus Live in 2016, he was already a British alt-rock prodigy, having played Glastonbury 2015 at age 16. Still, McKenna has clear and fond memories of his first-ever stateside gig. "The first place I ever landed in America was Tampa," McKenna said recently by phone from London.
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".
