"Any Given Thursday" is a live CD/DVD by John Mayer, recorded in Birmingham, Alabama at the Oak Mountain Amphitheater on September 12, 2002, during the "Room for Squares" tour. The album quickly peaked at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart. It features mostly songs from "Room for Squares".

Production and content

Though mostly featuring songs from "Room For Squares". The album also features "Man On The Side" (co-written with Cook) and "Covered in Rain", neither of which had ever been released on a studio recording. "Covered in Rain", according to a documentary included in the DVD release, is "part two" of the song "City Love", which features the line, "covered in rain." The concert features songs previously not heard, such as "Something's Missing", which appeared on "Heavier Things", his following album, and (as of 2008) is the only song to have appeared on every live release. It also features "Comfortable" from his original EP, "Inside Wants Out".

The DVD contained several features in addition to the conert: an audio commentary of the concert by Mayer and his friend Scotty Crowe (whose blog is hosted on Mayer's site since 2006update after|2009|0|0), a photo gallery from the tour (not exclusively the concert shown in the video itself), and a documentary of an interview with Mayer entitled, "The Morning After", in which Mayer talks about his influences, some meanings of songs, and just general information about Mayer. The video was taken the Friday morning after the concert.Fact|date=February 2008

Reception

The CD/DVD received conservative, although consistent, praise, with critics torn between his pop-idol image, and (at the time) emerging guitar prowess. Erik Crawford (of Allmusic) asked "Is he the consummate guitar hero exemplified when he plays a cover of Stevie Ray Vaughan's 'Lenny', or is he the teen idol that the pubescent girls shriek for after he plays 'Your Body Is a Wonderland?'" [Crawford, Erik (2003). [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:0pfexqtaldse "Review"] AllMusic.com. Retrieved on June 8, 2007.] [Medsker, David (2003). [http://www.popmatters.com/music/reviews/m/mayerjohn-any.shtml "Love me, love me, say that you love me..."] Pop Matters. Retrieved on June 8, 2007.] Billboard called the DVD "a great introduction to a rising star." [J.K.; Taylor, Chuck (March 8, 2003), "Any Given Thursday (Film)". "Billboard". 115 (10):36]

Commercially, Any Given Thursday entered the Billboard Albums Top 100 chart at number 34. It peaked at #23 for one week, and spent a total of 12 weeks on the chart. It quickly peaked at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart. In Australia, the DVD is certified 3x platinum by ARIA for sales of 45,000 copies.

Differences between the DVD and CD releases

*The song "Jóga" (originally by experimental musical artist Björk) does not appear on the CD release due to copyright troubles; however, it does appear on the DVD.
*Between many songs, the CD contains some brief comments by Mayer. On the DVD, these comments tend to be longer, including a few long monologues referred to by Mayer himself as "John's Story Time" (on the DVD commentary).
*Extended introductory explanations to songs (such as "City Love").

Miscellanea

*On the concert, Mayer pre-empts playing "Your Body Is a Wonderland" by telling the audience that he wrote the song there, in Birmingham.
