While there’s been a mostly positive reaction to Tom Petty’s classic Super Bowl performance, many of the people watching weren’t old enough to know Petty from his heyday. And seeing that today’s music market is saturated with young stars, it probably seemed weird to see an old guy like Tom Petty performing.
You’re probably wondering how old Tom Petty is. Well, it turns out that he’s 57 years old and was born on October 20th, 1950. Was he the oldest Super Bowl performer ever? No. Though he probably looks it;-)
