Our best bets for this weekend are multiplatinum superstars Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey, pop-rock acts Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows, and the Retro Futura tour with Howard Jones, The English Beat, Men Without Hats and more. Lionel Richie’s All the Hits Tour is finally ready to hit the Bay Area. The trek, featuring special guest Mariah Carey, was supposed to come through back in the spring. Yet, Richie’s recovery from a knee procedure made the postponement necessary.
Bruno Mars, one of pop music’s biggest stars, is heading to the Bay Area. The multiplatinum-selling artist performs July 20-21 at the SAP Center in San Jose and then returns to perform at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. (See Ticketmaster.com for more information.) What will Mars perform at his local gigs? Here’s the possible/probable set list, based on what the star performed at a recent tour stop (June 15 in Italy).
Some artists spend decades pining to get “the call” from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Then there’s Joan Baez, who didn’t even initially know what to make of her nomination to join popular music’s most prestigious club. Sound advice: Top 3 concerts in the Bay Area this weekend How did Shawn Mendes make over 14,000 Bay Area fans scream with joy Vote now: Does Duran Duran belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
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".
