The theater says guests will see a few of these dogs Thursday when they enter the Black Keys concert.

Organizers say the dogs are only meant to sniff for COVID-19 and have remarkable accuracy.

All concert-goers will also have to show proof of vaccination or a negative test within the last 48 hours.
