Tickets for Kaiser Chiefs' live shows have seen a huge increase in demand since frontman Ricky Wilson made his TV debut as a judge on the BBC's primetime talent show, The Voice. Ticket marketplace Viagogo have reported an impressive 179% increase in searches for tickets for the band's shows, boosted in part by a group performance of the band's iconic hit, 'I Predict A Riot' on the show.

Lily Madigan is the Labour party's first transgender women's officer but her appointment has ruffled some feathers. The 19-year-old was elected to the position in Rochester and Strood earlier this month. Lily campaigned to have the previous officer, Anne Ruzylo, removed due to her perceived transphobic views. "I come from an under-represented section of womanhood," Lily tells Newsbeat. "I thought I was the best person for the role. I'm pretty happy other people agreed."
Jay Pagan was bullied for having ginger hair and being overweight from primary school through to university. When he was young, children told him he had "ginger germs" and as he got older he was tagged in cruel memes on social media. Jay says comments passed off as "banter" at university hurt just as much as taunts in the school playground. "It's like a pinprick," the 25-year-old, who lives in Cardiff, tells Newsbeat.
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".
