Continuity mistake: During the "Another one bites the dust" scene, Freddie is given a sheet, which he holds with his left hand, beer in his right. A shot later the beer is gone and the sheet has swapped hands. Then a shot later the bottle reappears in his right hand. He never gives it or has it given back. (01:12:55)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Freddie drops the lyrics sheet after shoving it in Roger's face - he holding his beer in his right hand. Freddie gives the beer to Roger and when the camera moves to a close up of John's hand's playing the bass, Freddie crosses in front of John and picks up a new sheet from the table where Brian is sitting. The bottle never reappears in Freddie's hand.

You're basing your correction on a moment that occurs minutes later in the scene. And the table is 3 meters away. He couldn't have left the bottle anywhere.

Continuity mistake: When Brian tells Freddie about "We will rock you", they both clap. Right before Freddie asks "What's the lyrics?" he raises his hands to clap but from the opposite angle they are down and he isn't clapping any more.

Continuity mistake: When Freddie gives the ring to Mary, his right hand is either below the ring case or holding the front part, depending on the shot.

Continuity mistake: When the movie begins and Freddie is launching suitcases, the colour and type of the bags is not continuous between the first shot and the immediate wide angle.

Factual error: We see Fat Bottomed Girls being performed in 1975 in the USA. The song wasn't played live for the first time until 1978.

John Reid: So, tell me. What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?
Freddie Mercury: I'll tell you what it is. We're four misfits who don't belong together, playing to the other misfits, the outcasts, right at the back of the room who are pretty sure they don't belong either. We belong to them.

Question: What is the significance of the guy moving the button on the control panel at the Live Aid concert? He moved the "no" tape and slides the buttons and then puts the tape back.

Answer: There is no major significance other than he felt Queen deserved more volume. Queen was one of the biggest bands in the world at that time.
