Warner Bros. called off the London premiere of “Wonder Woman” and Ariana Grande postponed her tour Wednesday in response to the attack that killed 22 at her Manchester show.
Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” tour had been scheduled to resume Thursday at London’s O2 Arena, but the tour will now be delayed at least through June 5.

“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,” Grande’s team said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.

In its statement, Warner Bros. said, “Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent tragedy in the UK. In light of the current situation, we will not be proceeding with our plans for the Wonder Woman premiere and junket activities in London.”

“Wonder Woman” will have its U.S. premiere Thursday in Los Angeles. The film opens June 1 in the UK and June 2 in in the U.S.

Refunds will be granted per Live Nation for the following Grande shows:

Thursday, May 25 – London, UK at The O2
Friday, May 26 – London, UK at the O2
Sunday, May 28 – Antwerp, Belgium at Antwerp Sportpaleis
Wednesday, May 31 – Lodz, Poland at Atlas Arena
Thursday, June 1 – Lodz, Poland at Atlas Arena
Saturday, June 3 – Frankfurt, Germany at Festhalle Messe Frankfurt
Monday, June 5 – Zurich, Switzerland at Hallenstadion

A suicide bomber identified as Salman Abedi killed 22 people and injured at least 59 Monday night outside the concert. Abedi died at the scene after setting off a homemade explosive device in the foyer of the Manchester Arena just as the concert was concluding, around 10:35 p.m. local time, officials said.

Four men have been arrested in connection with the bombing: Authorities on Tuesday arrested a 23-year-old in South Manchester, and three more men were arrested Wednesday. No names have been released.
