The Queen Lifts Pyrotechnic Ban For Mccartney

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has been given royal permission to use pyrotechnics during his Hyde Park gig in London on Sunday (27Jun10) - after British monarch Queen Elizabeth II lifted a ban especially for the rocker.
The Beatles legend is due to perform at Hard Rock Calling this weekend (26-27Jun10) and he wanted to add dramatic lighting to his show during a rendition of his song Helter Skelter.
Pyrotechnics are usually banned from the park because it is set beneath a flight path, but the Queen has allowed MCCartney to use the effects during his set, according to Britain's Daily Star.
A source tells the publication, "As Hyde Park is underneath a flight path, pyrotechnics are usually banned from any concerts held there. The Queen herself is the only person who can change that rule, so clearly she's a MACca fan. She has agreed to let him blast off some impressive pyros during Helter Skelter."
