2. However, on the same day, a tour with a similar bill was canceled in the U.K. and Europe.

Emmure, After The Burial, Fit For A King, Oceans Ate Alaska and Loathe were supposed to hit the U.K. and Europe in January and February of next year. In a statement from Emmure, the band “promise to be back at a later time in 2017.”

“It is with our most sincere apologies that we will need to cancel the upcoming Torch The Earth tour. Upon the initial planning of this tour our goal was to return to Europe in 2017 pairing a new record with the tour. Unfortunately some unexpected delays have hindered our chances of releasing the record in this time frame. We appreciate that our fans understand how important this release is to us, it is a record we have put so much effort into on every angle, and we feel we would be selling our fans and ourselves short if we compromised the overall release of it. We promise to be back at a later time in 2017, and with a brand new record. Refunds will be available at point of purchase for all cancelled shows.”

6. Lastly, we're sorry to say your perfect holiday gift has already been bought and sold.

J.K. Rowling handwrote a copy of Harry Potter spin-off book The Tales of Beedle The Bard, containing six thousand words. She also drew illustrations and wrote a personalized message to her first signed publisher, Barry Cunningham—the book's original owner. It was one of only six copies given out to people closely involved with the famed series, according to NME.

Today, that book sold at an auction for $468,438 dollars.

While six of the original copies were given away to those close confidants, a seventh was sold at an auction in 2007 for $2,468,963 dollars.
