For the genesis of Zak's involvement with the band Oasis, see the Zak with Oasis 2004 page.
For the most part, the 6th Oasis album was finished by the very end of 2004, and tour dates had begun to surface for 2005. There was initial confusion among some fans about who would be the drummer on the tour - as Terry Kirkbride's site had listed him to play "percussion" with Oasis for some UK dates. Then in Feb, Noel confirmed in various radio interviews that Zak was indeed the drummer for the tour.

The band made a variety of TV and Radio appearances promoting
the album and tour - mostly through out the UK and Europe. US TV appearances were
nonexistent, though we did get a great Boston gig broadcast (though you had to
get the better version of it through GERMAN radio!)
Oasis played both large and small venues in and around Europe, came to North America twice, to the Far East twice and then back to Europe and the UK. There is also talk a retun US visit in early 2006!
