It's pretty much just as the headline says: Passing freelancers and the assorted cats that roam the area are in for an afternoon treat today, so long as your idea of a treat is watching Sting perform a handful of his hits in the shadow of the Queen Mary 2 at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.

The performance will be in commemoration of the ship's 10-year anniversary, and to thank Cunard for bankrolling Sting's musical, "The Last Ship," which critics awarded a resounding "meh."

The show kicks off at 1:15 p.m. The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is located at 72 Bowne Street. Click here for directions. [h/t City Room]
