The ¡Oye Esteban! Tour was a concert tour by Morrissey. Its name came from the fact that Morrissey was planning to release ¡Oye Esteban! on video, but lacked a contract with any label, and that the video was not yet put together to promote it. Despite speculation that Morrissey would cancel the tour, it did happen and it was a huge success, with Morrissey traveling to Mexico and South America for the first time. The man drew huge crowds at all eight shows, proving that he was hugely popular in that part of the world. A cameraman followed Morrissey, filming Morrissey and his fans at these concerts. Some of the footage was used for the 2003 documentary, The Importance of Being Morrissey.
