Revealing mistake: Right before the scene where Freddie meets with the band to try and make amends, he's arguing with that one man in the rain. After he walks away and it's raining only on him and on the pavement. If you look to the right there is no rain coming down on the grass or trees or anything else.
Factual error: During the Live Aid gig Roger Taylor uses a Tama Iron Cobra pedal on his bass drum which was not produced until the '90s.
Trivia: In the film, Freddie discovers that he's HIV positive in 1985, prior to Live Aid, when in fact he didn't find out until the spring of 1987, after the 'Magic' tour.
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.
