AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Beginning this weekend (May 22), there will be walk-through metal detectors at DTE Energy Music Theater entrances. 

That's right: If you're going to the Dierks Bentley concert Sunday night, you will have to walk through a metal detector before you can get inside the music theater. And you can expect to do this for the rest of the summer concert season at DTE Energy Music Theater, which many affectionately still refer to as Pine Knob. 

In a news release, the music theater said these walk-through metal detectors will be "more efficient" and "less-invasive" than the hand-wanding method they've been using. 

"When entering the venue, fans will be asked to remove large metal objects such as cell phones, tablets, cameras and large key rings into a basket while proceeding through the metal detectors. Guests will not be asked to remove shoes, belts or change from their pockets," the news release reads. 

So it will be like going to an event at Joe Louis Arena or the Palace of Auburn Hills.
