The American star has yet to officially announce the special guests for her Dublin show next week.
Irish acts Mick Flannery and Pillow Queens have been announced as the support acts for Phoebe Bridgers' upcoming sold-out gigs in the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, on June 22 and 23, respectively.
Bridgers has yet to officially announce her special guests for her sold-out show in Fairview Park, Dublin on Monday, June 20.
Mick Flannery, along with his collaborator Susan O'Neill, previously supported the Californian singer-songwriter at her gig in Philadelphia, back in September 2021. Bridgers was clearly a fan – stating on stage during her set that she "fucks with" the pair.
"And everyone here should fuck with them too," she added.
Ahead of the Philadelphia gig, she also shared her appreciation for Flannery and O'Neill's collaborative album, In The Game, on Twitter: "I love this fucking record."
Following his announcement as the support act for Bridgers' first night in Glasgow, Flannery tweeted that he is "very grateful to Phoebe Bridgers and co for the invite."

Pillow Queens will play the support slot at Bridgers' second night in Glasgow.
"Oh hey guys!" the Dublin-based band wrote on Twitter. "Just letting you know we'll be supporting Phoebe Bridgers at the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow on June 23rd.
"We're all very calm about this in Pillow Queens HQ," they added. "Having an absolute normal one. SEE YOU IN GLASGOW"

Both Pillow Queens and Mick Flannery have featured on the cover of Hot Press within the past year.
The Dublin and Glasgow gigs form part of Bridgers' Reunion Tour. According to the tour poster, $1 of every ticket sold "will be donated to The Mariposa Fund, part of the US National Network of Abortion Funds."
As the singer-songwriter previously noted on social media, The Mariposa Fund "work to provide abortions, specifically for undocumented people who already face huge systemic barriers when trying to obtain safe reproductive health services."
Bridgers released her latest album, Punisher, in 2020. The following year, she scored four Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song.
She's no stranger to Ireland – having visited these shores with her boyfriend, Irish actor Paul Mescal, in addition to her previous Irish gigs. She also contributed a brand new song, ‘Sidelines’, to the soundtrack of the recent adaptation of Sally Rooney’s Conversations With Friends
Fingers crossed this moment will finally happen...
Only if he wears the shorts
