Gary Barlow has wished his fans luck this morning ahead of the general sale of his hotly anticipated solo tour. The Take That frontman will play two intimate shows in Llandudno next year, performing for just 1,500 people each night. The general sale begins at 10am today - Friday October 20 - and tickets are expected to sell out immediately. The Rule the World singer from Frodsham in Cheshire will perform at Venue Cymru on May 21 and May 22. A supporting act is yet to be confirmed.
Tickets for Gary Barlow’s solo tour sold out within a minutes of going on sale. Fans up and down the country were left disappointed after failing to secure a seat just moments after the general sale. Tickets for 34 dates of Barlow’s solo tour that will visit Llandudno’s Venue Cymru on May 21 and May 22 next year were available online at 10am this morning. But by 10.02am, fans across the UK hoping to see the Rule the World singer complained they had all been snapped up.
The newly appointed Music Director for the Llangollen International Eisteddfod says more can be done so visitors do not misunderstand the essence of the event. Vicky Yannoula, who replaced former MD Eilir Griffiths last month said people can be under the impression the Eisteddfod is simply just a Welsh festival. But the 39-year-old Greek pianist who said she is “full of ideas” for the event said it is in fact an international festival taking place in Wales.
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".
