LONDON (AP):

The bombing in the Manchester has forced the suspension of pop star Ariana Grande's current tour. Her management put out the following statement Wednesday.

"Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost.

The London O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows through June 5 in Switzerland. We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence.

Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you."

The tour is not the only entertainment event to be negatively affected by the terrorist attack.

The glitzy, star-filled London premiere of Wonder Woman has been scrapped following the terror attack in Manchester.

Stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Robin Wright had been scheduled to walk a red carpet on May 31 to help welcome the superhero film to Europe.

Warner Bros said in a statement Wednesday that the movie's junket and premiere were off "in light of the current situation."

The film is scheduled to be released worldwide on June 2.

Bands like Blondie and Take That also cancelled shows in the immediate aftermath of the attack, that killed 22 people.
