Lady Antebellum will join Keith Urban as part of his Get Closer 2011 World Tour in Australia. The trek kicks off Friday (April 8) in Adelaide, and Lady A member Hillary Scott is hoping to soak in the local flavor during some free time Down Under.

"Dave has been to Sydney, and then Charles and I have never been," says the youngest member of the group. "So this is going to be an adventure for us. We're excited! We've done some phone [interviews] and promos, but to meet the people, to see the fans, to hopefully make some new fans -- we're really looking forward to it. And then the obvious; I'm going to go see the kangaroos and pet a koala bear. [laughs] We're really looking forward to it. It'll be really fun."

They'll play shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Tamworth and Melbourne before wrapping this leg of the tour in Auckland, New Zealand April 18.

Lady Antebellum have a few weeks off the road, to continue working on their forthcoming album, before they head back out on tour June 2 in Thackerville, Okla.
