As investigators wrapped their third day looking into the cause of Prince’s death, the singer was quietly cremated Saturday evening. Here’s what else we know so far:

10:01 p.m. ET: Bruce Springsteen opened his Saturday concert at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., with a cover of Purple Rain. Bathed in violet light, the Boss told the crowd, “Whenever I catch one of his shows, I always leave humble. So, I’m going to miss that and we’re going to miss him.”


7:28 p.m. ET: Prince was cremated and celebrated afterward in a small, private service by a group of his “most beloved” family, friends and musicians, his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, said in a statement Saturday.

It read: “A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye. Prince’s remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private. We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time. The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy. An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration.”

The Associated Press reported that drummer Sheila E. and bassist Larry Graham were spotted at Paisley Park, his studio compound Saturday in Chanhassen, Minn, and presumably the site of the memorial service. Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Phillips were also seen on the grounds.
