Tom Petty chose well for his 12 minute set at half time at the Super Bowl. The 12 minute set opened with 'American Girl'.

'American Girl' was featured on Petty's 1976 self-titled debut. It has been a standard in the setlist ever since.

Next came three tracks from the 1989 solo album 'Full Moon Fever'. Petty launched into 'I Won't Back Down' and then 'Free Falling' before closing with 'Running Down A Dream'.

70,500 people witnessed the Petty performance at the Super Bowl in Glendale, Phoenix.

The performance was also witnessed live by hundreds of millions around the world. 223 countries broadcast the Super Bowl live.

In recent years, the Super Bowl half-time show has featured The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. The most famous (or infamous) of the shows was Janet Jackson's "Nipplegate" performance in 2004.
