Abstract: The photometric experiment on board of Hipparcos has discovered, among other types of variables, a large amount of new Slowly Pulsating B Stars. We have selected the fourteen brightest stars of this sample, together with five previously known Slowly Pulsating B Stars, for long-term spectroscopic and photometric monitoring. The selected stars have spectral types ranging from B2 up to B9 and are thus nicely spread across the instability strip. We here present the results of a preliminary analysis of our data and point out that our sample is unique in the sense that it allows us to perform seismology of massive early-type stars.
