The hugely successful outfit will also perform at Dolan's Limerick, Galway's Róisín Dubh, the Dundalk Spirit Store, Kilkenny's Set Theatre, Mike the Pies of Listowel and Sandino's Derry.
Dublin-based alt rock quartet Pillow Queens have added another date to their forthcoming national tour, with the gig set to take place at Cork's Cyprus Avenue on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021.
The group recently rescheduled their upcoming Irish shows to December 2021 as a result of the continued shutdown of live venues due to COVID restrictions.
“Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we've had to reschedule our Irish shows," Pillow Queens said in a statement.
"If you cannot make the new date please contact your point of purchase for information on refunds."
The outfit are scheduled to play Ulster Sports Club, Belfast on December 2nd as well as Dublin's Button Factory on December 17th and 18th.
Tickets are available from the Pillow Queens website here.
Great news! Rescheduled Irish tour dates! Cork date added! (refusing to write 'due to unforeseen circumstances' ever again so I guess these ones will have to go ahead.)

Since Pillow Queens debuted their Calm Girls EP in 2017, which sparked a string of UK and Irish dates as well as festival appearances, the outfit have become a prominent force in Irish music.
In September 2020, the band released their stunning RTÉ Choice Music Prize-nominated debut album In Waiting.
Hot Press's Tanis Smither reviewed the album on release, praising the project's "tough, bruising poetry, delivered impeccably as Pillow Queens restlessly bounce from genre to genre, refusing to settle" - calling it a "a distinctive, original and quietly brilliant debut".
The indie-rockers have also signed a major publishing deal with Sub Pop Publishing, announcing the news on February 10th. The publishing group is a division of the Sub Pop Record label.
