See the 1982 film, "Pink Floyd - The Wall" on Jan. 30 at the MECCA Sports Bar and Grill.

MECCA hosts "The Wall" screening in honor of Waters tickets going on sale

Hey you, if you're a Pink Floyd fan you're gonna want to run like hell over to the MECCA Sports Bar and Grill – just outside the wall of the Fiserv Forum – on Thursday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. and catch a special screening of "Pink Floyd – The Wall."

The free screening of the dark film – starring Bob Geldof, and inspired by Pink Floyd's multi-million-selling 1979 double-album opus of the same name – is in celebration of Roger Waters' Saturday, Aug. 22 performance – in the flesh! – across the Deer District plaza at the Fiserv Forum, and anticipation of tickets for the show going on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. the day after the screening.

Attend the screening and it just may be one of the happiest days of your life, because anybody out there in the crowd will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to the show.

But, stop!, don't leave me now, because there's more; the bar has cooked up a special Comfortably Numb spiced rum cocktail for the show.

So get there early – because the show must go on – and make yourself comfortable in one of the empty spaces near the screen, say "goodbye cruel world" and enjoy the film among the Floyd faithful.

Better yet, call The MECCA Sports Bar and Grill at (414) 908-0401 to reserve seating for the screening, and remember to eat your meat, so that you can enjoy some pudding (I hope there's gonna be pudding).
