Good luck with that plan, it's not likly to stay stuck to the wall.
Dry wall adhesive may or may not work. It's just not normaly done that way.

PL Premium will stick drywall to tile if you can not shake the walls--you will need to brace the sheets or mechanically fasten with enough screws to keep it in place until the glue sets.

The technique that works best---apply PL Premium to back of sheet---press against the wall--pull it back---wait about one minute for glue to 'flash'--then press into place and brace or screw.

The 'flashed' glue acts like a contact adhesive and sticks faster.

Cover your butt---notify the clock shop the day before you plan on working on that wall---Just in case.....
