Michael Cohl (born c. 1948) is a Canadian concert promoter. He is the president of Toronto-based music promotional company The BCL Group (Ballard Cohl Labatt). Although he started out in the business at the age of 18 running a strip club, he made his reputation in 1989 by buying the concert, sponsorship, merchandising, radio, television, and film rights to The Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels Tour. The tour became the most financially successful rock tour in history. Rival promoter Bill Graham, who also bid on the tour, later wrote "Losing the Stones was like watching my favourite lover become a whore." - Source: Wikipedia
