Throwback Concert: The Who at Arena at Harbor Yard 2006

Throwback Concert: The Who at Arena at Harbor Yard 2006

By Drew Carrano

The Coronavirus has affected a lot of bands, including The Who. They were scheduled to play a handful of shows in the U.K. and Ireland in March, but those dates have been postponed to the spring of 2021.

While the band takes this unexpected touring hiatus, we look back at The Who’s secret rehearsal and soldout show in Bridgeport in 2006.

Today’s Throwback Concert:

The Who

Endless Wire Tour

Special Guest: The Pretenders

Tuesday November 28, 2006

The Arena at Harbor Yard – Bridgeport (now Webster Bank Arena)


About The Tour: The Who embarked on a worldwide concert tour in 2006 in support of their eleventh studio album, Endless Wire. It was their first album and world tour since the death of bassist John Entwistle in 2002. The Endless Wire Tour began with a 24-date European Tour before coming to the United States.

But before their first U.S. show, The Who rehearsed at The Arena at Harbor Yard on September 9-10, 2006. The rehearsals were not only closed to the public, but it wasn’t publicized that the band was rehearsing in Connecticut until after they had left town.

The first leg of the North American Tour kicked off in Philadelphia at The Wachovia Center on September 12th. The band returned to Bridgeport in November for their first show in Connecticut since 1999. Joining them were special guests The Pretenders, who played a strong hour long set before The Who took the stage. The sold out audience at Harbor Yard rocked out to a two-hour Who set that included new songs off Endless Wire and classic songs like The Seeker, Who Are You and My Generation.
