The NFL made the announcement Sunday.
The group has sold more than 50 million records since releasing its debut album in 1976. Its hits include ``Free Fallin','' ``Breakdown,'' ``Refugee,'' ``I Won't Back Down,'' ``Don't Come Around Here No More,'' ``You Don't Know How It Feels,'' and ``Runnin' Down A Dream.''
Petty, an 18-time Grammy nominee with one of rock 'n' roll's most distinctive voices, has also done solo work and was a founding member of The Traveling Wilburys, playing alongside George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne.
Recent Super Bowl halftime acts include the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Prince. Nearly 140 million TV viewers in the United States watched Prince last year.
